No VM host by default, maximum up to 8 VM hosts. To expand the unit's scan power, you can purchase a Cloud Windows VM subscription. Files can be sent to Fortinet Cloud Sandboxing to scan.

FortiSandbox devices purchased after March 17, 2017 do not support WINXP VM type and its licenses due to Microsoft EOL.

The number of supported VM hosts for each model is only for images published by Fortinet. This number might be lower for custom images with high resource requirements.

You can download and use optional images from VM Images > Optional VMs. The VM name shows the OS type. O16 in the name means Microsoft Office 2016 is installed. You might need extra Windows OS licenses. For example, if you want to use a Windows 10 image on a FSA-1000D unit, you must purchase a Windows 10 license key from Fortinet.

The following software is installed on each pre-installed Windows guest image:

  • Adobe Flash Player
  • Adobe Reader
  • Java Run Time
  • MSVC Run Time
  • Microsoft .Net Framework
  • Microsoft Office software (only on certain VM types)
  • Web Browsers

Android VM is free to download and use.

You can build custom VM images but you must have software licenses for your custom images.
