Security Rating

The Fabric View > Security Rating pane displays Security Fabric Ratings of configurations for FortiGate Security Fabric groups or a single FortiGate device (version 7.0 and later).

The security rating on FortiManager is based on the security rating reports from FortiGate. If security rating reports are unavailable from FortiGate devices, the report on FortiManager will not include its data.

You can view the results for multiple FortiGate Security Fabric groups by choosing a group in the Select a CSF dropdown menu.

Click Run Now to run the Security Rating report at any time directly from FortiManager.

The Security Rating pane is separated into three major scorecards: Security Posture, Fabric Coverage, and Optimization, which provide an executive summary of the three largest areas of security focus in the Security Fabric.

The scorecards show an overall letter grade and breakdown of the performance in sub-categories. Clicking a scorecard drills down to a detailed report of itemized results and compliance recommendations. The point score represents the net score for all passed and failed items in that area.

The report includes the security controls that were tested against, linking to specific FSBP or PCI compliance policies. Click the FSBP and PCI buttons to reference the corresponding standard. Users can search or filter the report results.

To exit the detailed report view, click the scorecard title to return to the summary view.

For more information about security ratings, and details about each of the checks that are performed, go to Security Best Practices & Security Rating Feature.

Note

Security rating licenses are required to run security rating checks across all the devices in the Security Fabric. It also allows ratings scores to be submitted to and received from FortiGuard for ranking networks by percentile.
