Mar 14 2018 - IoC? (Indicators of Compromise).
The FortiAnalyzers we supply along-side the FortiGate firewalls have a subscription feature: IoC. Once activated the Indicators of Compromise (IOC) summary screen shows end users with suspicious web usage compromises. It provides information such as end users’ IP addresses, host name, group, OS, overall threat rating, a Map View, and number of threats. You can drill down to view threat details. To generate the Indicators of Compromise, FortiAnalyzer checks the web filter logs of each end user against its threat database. When a threat match is found, a threat score is given to the end user. FortiAnalyzer aggregates the threat scores of an end user and gives its verdict of the end user’s overall Indicators of Compromise. A long-standing GISS customer purchased IoC subscription this week.
