FortiClient Overview

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 The software inventory management module allows managers to monitor all software installed on an endpoint and remove outdated and unwanted applications.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

Excellent Remote Access Solution

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.

The Perfect Lightweight Endpoint Solution

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.

AFE AND EASY TO HANDLE

I used the VPN, but it was very bureaucratic step by step, I had to keep saving ID, then log in, finally a technician from the company indicated me the fortcliente to work for the notebook anywhere and I find it very easy.

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

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

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.

I used the VPN, but it was very bureaucratic step by step, I had to keep saving ID, then log in, finally a technician from the company indicated me the fortcliente to work for the notebook anywhere and I find it very easy.

Pros

It´s safe, it has integrated VPN, great to be used for remote connection mainly when we start working with corporate computers at home.

Cons

Sometimes the connection goes down and you have to log in again because it does not save the access login.

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
