Security Profiles and Virtual domains (VDOMs)

If you enable virtual domains (VDOMs) on your FortiGate unit, any Security Profiles configuration is limited to the VDOM in which you configure it.

While configuration is not shared, the various databases used by Security Profiles features are shared. The FortiGuard antivirus and IPS databases and updates to the databases are shared. The FortiGuard web filter and spam filter features access the FortiGuard distribution network and read the same information when checking email for spam and web site categories and classification.
