UTM feature behavior in FOS 7.0 after license expiration is as below:

1. AntiVirus:

- For offline scan, new virus definition packages and AV engine cannot be downloaded from FortiGuard. Feature will continue to work with existing definitions and engine.

- Outbreak Prevention Services will not work.

2. WebFilter:

- FortiGuard URL rating will stop working. Traffic can still pass if "Allow websites when a rating error occurs" is enabled.

- New antiphishing built-in user name / password pattern cannot be downloaded from FortiGuard. Feature will continue to work with existing patterns.

- Other features will continue to work.

3. VideoFilter: FortiGuard category rating will not work. Channel filtering still works.

4. Application Control / Intrusion Prevention: similar to AntiVirus. New signature packages and IPS engine cannot be be downloaded from FortiGuard. Feature will continue to work with existing signatures and engine.

5. File Filter: no impact.

6. Email Filter: only the online check filter will be not available, orher filters like local or banned words will not be affected.
