Introduction

This Release Notes covers the new features, enhancements, known issues, and resolved issues of FortiDDoS version 6.0.0, Build 005.

FortiDDoS 6.0.0 features a clean-sheet new architecture that draws on more than 10 years of FortiDDoS’ DDoS mitigation experience while providing a flexible and forward-looking solution to detect and mitigate Layer 3 to Layer 7 DDoS attacks for enterprise data centers. FortiDDoS uses machine learning and behavior based methods, and monitors hundreds of thousands of networking parameters to build an adaptive baseline of normal activity. It then monitors traffic against that baseline and defends against every DDoS attack.

Compatibility notice

Please note: FortiDDoS 6.0.0 is NOT compatible with existing B- and E-series models.

FortiDDoS Release 6.0.0 is released as a VM only and future compatibility with a new product line of FortiDDoS F-Series platforms.

FortiDDoS Release 6.0.0 covers most but not all features of FortiDDoS earlier B- and E-Series releases while adding functionality not preset in B-/E-Series.

Check documentation carefully before making feature assumptions.
