sandboxing-prefilter

Allow user to turn FortiGuard prefiltering on or off for 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. You can turn on FortiGuard prefiltering for a file type so that files of that type will be statically scanned first 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.
