The anti-exploit detection feature helps protect vulnerable endpoints from unknown exploit attacks. FortiClient monitors the behavior of popular applications, such as web browsers (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Opera), Java/Flash plugins, Microsoft Office applications, and PDF readers, against exploits that use zero-day or unpatched vulnerabilities to infect the endpoint. Once detected, the compromised application process is terminated. The anti-exploit detection feature also helps protect against memory-based attacks and drive-by download attacks. It also detects and blocks unknown and known exploit kits. It is a signature-less solution. The anti-exploit detection feature protects applications from any activities that can be harmful, regardless if legitimate applications or malicious code are causing them.
The anti-exploit detection feature is available only for FortiClient (Windows).
