Configuring antivirus and IPS options
To configure antivirus and IPS options:
- Go to System > FortiGuard
- Scroll down to the AntiVirus & IPS Updates section.
- Configure the antivirus and IPS options for connecting and downloading definition files:
Accept push updates
Enable to allow updates to be sent automatically to your FortiGate. New definitions will be added as soon as they are released by FortiGuard. See Push updates.
Use override push
Only available if Accept push updates is enabled. See Override push.
Enable to schedule updates to be sent to the FortiGate at the specified time. See Scheduled updates.
Improve IPS quality
Enable to send information to the FortiGuard servers when an attack occurs. This can help keep the FortiGuard database current as attacks evolve, and improve IPS signatures.
Use extended IPS signature package
Enable to use the extended IPS database, that includes protection from legacy attacks, along with the regular IPS database that protects against the latest common and in-the-wild attacks.
