Disable sending Malware statistics to FortiGuard

By default your FortiGate periodically sends encrypted Malware statistics to FortiGuard when Antivirus, IPS, or Application Control signatures are triggered. This data is used to improved FortiGuard services and determine which signatures are actively used. The malware statistics that are sent do not include any personal or sensitive customer data. The information is not shared with any external parties and is used in accordance with Fortinet's Privacy Policy.

To disable sending Malware statistics to FortiGuard, enter the following command:

config system global

set fds-statistics disable

end
