FortiSandbox

The Security Fabric supports FortiSandbox appliances and FortiSandbox Cloud. A FortiGate Cloud account is not required (see Decouple FortiSandbox Cloud from FortiGate Cloud, in the FortiOS 6.2.0 New Features Guide).

To use FortiSandbox in a Security Fabric, connect the FortiSandbox to the Security Fabric, then configure an antivirus profile to send files to the FortiSandbox. Sandbox inspection can also be used in Web Filter profiles.

FortiSandbox settings are configured on the root FortiGate of the Security Fabric. After configuration, the root FortiGate pushes the settings to other FortiGate devices in the Security Fabric.

To add a FortiSandbox appliance to the Security Fabric:
  1. On the root FortiGate, go to Security Fabric > Settings.
  2. Enable Sandbox Inspection and set the FortiSandbox Type to FortiSandbox Appliance.
  3. In the Server field, enter the FortiSandbox device's IP address.

  4. Optionally, enter a Notifier email.
  5. Click Apply.
  6. On the FortiSandbox appliance, go to Scan Input > Device.
  7. Edit the root FortiGate.
  8. Under Permissions, check the Authorized box.
  9. Click OK.
  10. Authorize the rest of the FortiGate devices that are in the Security Fabric.
To add a FortiSandbox cloud instance to the Security Fabric:
  1. On the root FortiGate, go to Security Fabric > Settings.
  2. Enable Sandbox Inspection and set the FortiSandbox Type to FortiSandbox Cloud.
  3. Select the FortiSandbox cloud region from the drop-down list. Data from your network will only be sent to servers in the selected region.
  4. Click Apply.
