Running a Security Fabric Audit

You can use the Security Fabric Audit to analyze your Security Fabric deployment, identify potential vulnerabilities, and highlight best practices. Using the Security Audit helps you improve your network configuration, deploy new hardware and software, and gain more visibility and control over your network.

The Security Score is determined by how many checks your network passes or fails during the Security Audit. It also makes recommended improvements. By checking the Security Score and applying its recommendations, you can have confidence that your network is getting more secure over time.

You must run the Security Fabric Audit on the root FortiGate in the Security Fabric.

  1. On External, go to Security Fabric > Audit to see all the FortiGates in the Security Fabric.

    Click Next.

    At the top of the page, you can see your network Security Score and the number of checks that passed or failed. The failed checks show the severity.

    Further down, you can see information about each failed check, including which FortiGate failed the check, the effect on your network’s score, and the recommendation for fixing the issue.

  2. You can use Easy Apply to apply recommendations. Easy Apply can change the configuration of any FortiGate in the Security Fabric, not just the root FortiGate.

    Select all the changes you want to make and click Apply Recommendations.
