FortiClient

Endpoint protection software with behavior-based analytics

About FortiClient

FortiClient is an endpoint protection software that helps small to midsize businesses identify and remediate malicious attacks across multiple vectors, including web, USB, and email. The software inventory management module allows managers to monitor all software installed on an endpoint and remove outdated and unwanted applications.

FortiClient enables supervisors to conduct on-demand, real-time, or scheduled scans to detect and quarantine malware and compromised endpoints. Administrators can extract user data from Active Directory and configure access rights, restricting specific users from adding or deleting critical information. The vulnerability management functionality enables users to detect threats and attacks across operating systems and third-party applications. It also uses SSL-based encryption and two-factor authentication to provide a secure user experience.

FortiClient comes with an API, which allows businesses to integrate the system with third-party applications. The activity dashboard provides endpoint alerts and summary reports, ensuring continuous monitoring across the organization.

I use Forticlient to connect to the office remotely and to protect my computer from viruses and threats. I access servers and databases daily without difficulty and I am satisfied with the experience obtained at the time.

Pros

It is an easy-to-configure tool that allows effective and efficient connectivity to our local networks from anywhere outside our offices.

Cons

At the moment I have no complaints about the tool, I use it daily without difficulty or risk and safely.

Overall, I am very happy with my usage of Forticlient. It does exactly what I need our endpoint solution to do, without weighing my users' computers down. As an added bonus, the included VPN works perfectly with my Fortigate firewalls.

Pros

I like that it keeps nefarious actors and services off of my computers, and administers system updates to them as well. This works consistently, and rarely needs any intervention.

Cons

Adding new computers is a little cumbersome, as they must first be added to the correct domain OU, then the domain must be refreshed in the Forticlient admin centre.

Talking about FortiClient is knowing that you have one of the leading solutions in the market, giving us peace of mind in the transmission of our information and helping greatly in obtaining management certifications such as ISO 27001. The cost is affordable if you compare it with the tranquility or the possible damage of a problem that compromises your data or those of the clients.

Pros

At the firm we handle a high amount of sensitive and confidential financial information in our operation, in the past we have received attempted computer attacks that fortunately did not represent a damage to our reputation, but we were uneasy if it were to be repeated. Since we implemented the FortiNet solution, we have greater peace of mind that our information and communications are kept private and secure.

Cons

The implementation time and the level of the people responsible for the deployment and management must be sufficient to have a satisfactory experience, in our case we had problems in the complexity of integrating with our network and other software.

I can say that it is a very practical application, especially if you need to connect to a server which does not have more licenses, you just have to generate a user for your VPN and the access problem is solved.

Pros

It is a very generous tool, since with it you can connect to a server as if it were locally, it allows you to share its resources without problems.

Cons

A great disadvantage of this tool is the limit that one can have with the internet, this means that if your internet is too bad, the connection will be too slow, which generates some annoyance in users, since the tool is very dependent of that resource as such

My company uses forticlient for remote work. When Covid-19 prevented persons from being in close proximity to each other, forticlient saved the day by giving persons the ability to work from home without skipping a beat or missing out on anything. It is a must-have for small companies.

Pros

Easy to download and set up
Allows employees access to work server and work files
It is free for what we use it for which is the VPN option
It is SAFE!!! which is super important because we deal with very sensitive information.

Cons

When multiple persons are on it at the same time, the connection can drop and that can create a whole mess.
It gives no alert when the connection drops, the only way you know is when you suddenly can't access work files.
If the computer goes to sleep, you will have to log in all over again because the connection will drop.
