Risk level indicators
There are currently two consoles within FortiView that display the Risk associated with the console: Applications and Cloud Applications. Each application pose different levels of risk to the network, represented by a colour code.
The following table identifies each risk level, from least to most severe:
Risk Level 1
|These applications have little to no risk level, with no assigned risk definition. Application file-sharing may result in data leakage, which would be a typical example of a low level risk.
An example application would be the Google toolbar, or Dropbox.
Risk Level 2
|These applications have an elevated risk level and typically use excessive bandwidth. High bandwidth consumption can lead to increased operational costs.
An example application would be Bittorrent.
Risk Level 3
|These applications have a low risk level and are typically evasive.
Evasive applications can lead to compliance risks, and could include applications such as JustinTV and GlypeProxy.
Risk Level 4
|These applications have a high risk level, and are defined as using both excessive and evasive bandwidth.
Example applications would be AutoHideIP and PandoraTV.
Risk Level 5
|Applications that have a high risk level are prone to malware or vulnerabilities that can introduce business continuity risks.|
