Load Balance
FTPS virtual server support

FortiADC now supports FTPS (File Transfer Protocol Secure) for virtual servers through the new Security Mode options for the FTP application profile type.

Increased secure communication between GSLB and SLB to prevent MITM attacks

To protect against MITM attacks, communication between GSLB and SLB can now be further secured by implementing root CA verification so that only the same set of certification and CA may pass.

SAML enhancements
  • SAML Service Providers metadata can now be exported through the Web UI.
