sandboxing-prefilter

Allow user to turn on or off FortiGuard prefiltering of certain file types.

If a file type is associated with a guest VM image, it will be scanned if the file type enters the job queue as defined in the Scan Profile page. The user can turn on FortiGuard prefiltering of a file type so that files of that type will first be statically scanned by an advanced analytic engine, and only suspicious files will be sandboxing scanned by the guest image. This can improve the system's scan performance, and all files will still go through an AV scan, a static scan, and community cloud query steps.

For the URL type, when FortiGuard prefiltering is enabled, only URLs whose web filtering rating is Unrated will be scanned inside associated guest VM image.

Syntax

sandboxing-prefilter [-h|-l|-e|-d] -t[dll|pdf|swf|js|htm|url|office|trustvendor|trustdomain]
