In this recipe, you run a Security Rating check, which analyzes the Fortinet Security Fabric deployment to identify potential vulnerabilities and highlight best practices.
Using the Security Rating can help you improve your network configuration, deploy new hardware and software, and gain more visibility and control over your network. By regularly checking your Security Rating and your Security Rating Score, and making the recommended improvements, you can have confidence that your network is getting more secure over time.
To run all available checks, you must have a valid Security Rating license from FortiGuard. If you don’t have a license, only certain checks are available. For more information about these checks, see Security Best Practices & Security Rating Feature.
Not all FortiGate models can run the FortiGuard Security Rating Service if they are the root FortiGate in a Security Fabric. For more information, see the FortiOS 6.0 Release Notes.
