FortiGate Cloud is a hosted security, switching, and wireless infrastructure management solution that includes a log retention service for FortiGate and FortiWiFi devices. FortiGate Cloud provides solutions for centralized reporting, traffic analysis, configuration management, and log retention without the need for additional hardware, software, or management overhead.
The FortiGate Cloud web portal provides a number of benefits including:

- Configuration and device management
- Hosted log retention with cloud-based storage
- Security intelligence and analytics with FortiView
- Ad hoc and scheduled reporting
FortiGate Cloud provides a consistent set of features for all supported technologies, with further specific functionality based on the product type.
FortiGate Cloud also includes the Cloud Sandbox service, an advanced threat detection solution that performs dynamic analysis to identify previously unknown malware. With advanced threats rapidly increasing in number and sophistication, a perimeter firewall is just not enough. Customers need security that effectively detects unknown threats to complement next-generation firewalls and other security devices in their network. Actionable intelligence generated by the service is passed back to the network making it possible for preventive controls to disarm the threat.
Cloud Sandbox offers an alternate deployment option to the FortiSandbox hardware appliance. It delivers the same rapid detection and automated response, but in the cloud. This provides unlimited flexibility to complement Fortinet appliances in any deployment scenario such as distributed enterprise, data center, and more. Cloud Sandbox is available to purchase alongside FortiGate, FortiWiFi, FortiMail, FortiWeb, and FortiProxy range of security appliances. See Eligibility and purchasing.
