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 The software inventory management module allows managers to monitor all software installed on an endpoint and remove outdated and unwanted applications.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.

Great VPN client with lots of security features

Reviewed on 2018/10/17

Pros

For most Fortigate customers, Forticlient is granted. It is a great VPN client, very stable and with great features (ie. automatic reconnect, AD integration at Fortigate level, …). It also is integrated with the security features (antivirus, firewall, …). I am not sure Forticlient is to be used by non Fortinet customers; but it should bring every IT Manager to look into Fortinet as their firewall solution!

Cons

Finding updates on their website not always intuitive! Lacks a bit of central management (or I did not find out how to do it).

It enables me to work on sensitive servers and connections from practically anywhere, that is good enough to use it in this market beyond all its shortcomings.

Pros

It allows me to connect to my company's VPN securely - that in itself is an awesome thing. It has a client for Ubuntu which most vendors ignore, also good. but that's about it .

Cons

I'm referring specifically to the Ubuntu client, I don't know much about others - it has a lot to improve. It doesn't save my settings permanently - what I mean that every few days it gets corrupted somehow - don't know how - and I have to re-input the host, port and username. And it does have a profiles screen, so it was built to save this, but like I said every few days that list gets deleted...

Overall the product works well. It provides virus protection a step above built in malware scanners and allows a VPN connection into a work network. I do also find having the software run on my computer takes a few hours off of my battery life on my computer.

Pros

It allows me to communicate with my work network securely and maintain security standards around the organization.

Cons

It would be pretty difficult for an end user to configure if your organization did not have a way to deploy a preconfigured client.

We need to connect to client VPN on a daily basis. After a quick setup we easily connect daily and have not experienced any issues with this VPN since we started using it.

Pros

It was very easy to setup and start connecting to our client's databases through this VPN. They sent over the connection criteria and we were connected within minutes. Easy to setup, easy to use.

Cons

Nothing I don't like at the moment, no complaints.
