Announcing FortiMail 5.4

FortiMail 5.4 has been approved for release and will be uploaded to the support site in the next few hours.

This version of FortiMail is a major rework focused on enhancing the GUI, removing the need for plugins and improving the configuration workflow:

 

In addition to the GUI enhancements,  the following new features have been added:

[ul]
  • Extreme virus database support
  • FortiGuard Virus Outbreak Protection Service (licensed feature)
  • Dynamic Adult Image Analysis Service (licensed feature)
  • SAML SSO Support for FortiMail webmail.
  • Password decryption for archive and PDF files
  • AV and FSA rescan for released quarantine email[/ul]

    See the release notes and admin guides once uploaded for details of these and many more new features.

    Currently there is no separate documentation for this feature other thane what is found within the Admin guide.   But in summary:

     

    FortiMail Dynamic Adult Image Analysis dynamically detects image containing adult content in order to:

    [ul]
  • Protect the network against sexually explicit images by identifying suspect image attachments in emails
  • Educate users about the company policy when questionable content is detected
  • Allow administrators / HR / Compliance Officers to monitor emails to provide visibility of misuse
  • Enforce company policy by taking appropriate action on emails containing explicit content
  • Ensure adherence to Policy and effective Compliance[/ul]

    Dynamic Adult Image Analysis is not based on basic error-prone methods such as skintone analysis but uses multiple advanced detection techniques including (but not limited to) body part detection, body pose detection etc. and generates an image score between 0-100 for how likely the image is to contain adult content.  The default settings are the best balance between catch rate and false positive to detect highly suspect adult content and should not require changing however, increasing the Rating sensitivity > 75 (default) will reduce the FP rate (but also reduce the catch rate).  It is not recommended to reduce the Rating sensitivity as this may result in an increase in FP rate with minimal impact on catch rate.

     

    Please let me know if you need any more detail on the feature.

    Hello,

     

    Installed 5.4 on our 200D and looks good, the UI is a bit slower.  There were some feature requests we made with 5.3 and we were hoping that it would be incorporated in to 5.4.  Not sure if this is the proper place to post but we were hoping for the following features/fixes:

     

    - be able to import and export user aliases

     

    - under Domain & User->User->User Preferences-><Selected User>-> Secondary accounts entry dialogue interface

    ; since the Secondary accounts entry dialogue interface only allows entries of already existing users it would be useful if the dialogue interface was updated/changed to something similar to the create new alias dialogue interface where there is a list of Available users to pick from

     

    - be able to assign different port numbers for webmail and admin access (this is to prevent the admin GUI from being forward facing)

     

    5.4 Findings:

    - when managing the quarantine on the GUI in 5.3 there was a select all box which was handy now in 5.4 we have to select one and then shift select the last one delete; would be nice to have the select all box back

     

    - the user preferences dialogue box cannot scroll to the bottom "Receive Spam Report" is only half visible; to ahve it shown completely you have to minimize (minus sign) some of the other options

     

    Keep up the great work with the Fortimail FW!

     

    Thanks

    It´s working really good!

     

    For the "select all", try to right-click on one row, and there will be a popup menu with "select all"

    Would be good if Fortimail has Logs/Reports per domain. It could be a multi-tenancy product (without FAZ, of course) :)

    Is there any documentation for Dynamic Adult Image Analysis?
