Supported file types

File filter allows the FortiGate to block files passing through based on file type based on the file's meta data only, and not on file size or file content. A DLP sensor must be configured to block files based on size or content, such as SSN numbers, credit card numbers, or regexp.

The following file types are supported in file filter and DLP profiles:
