Indicators of compromise (IOCs) are artifacts observed on a network or in an operations system where people have a high confidence that said artifact indicates a computer intrusion. FortiGuard's IOC service helps security analysts identify risky devices and users based on these artifacts. IOCs provide more context for security operations centers to know what is happening around the global threat landscape, and provide the ability to scan their internal networks for such. This allows you the ability for historical scanning and help in prioritizing resources to know what to focus on.
Outbreak Detection Service provides critical outbreak reports and event handlers to a FortiAnalyzer device. Administrators can identify, respond and validate their security readiness against widespread outbreaks.
