Fortinet FortiClient Pros

JJ
Solutions Architect at a comms service provider with 51-200 employees
Starting from FortiGate and from the EMS server, you have to begin at the endpoint, and that's the most useful thing about using FortiClient.

It is not at all interesting for me as a standalone product, but as a product that is integrated with FortiGate with all features, it is actually a great tool and a great experience. I had test installed FortiClient working from home. I remembered and knew which web categories were denied or allowed. All those policies were correctly reflected standalone, for example, on my laptop.

EMS central reporting with fabric connectivity to FortiGate and FortiAnalyser is great and has seamless integration which makes managing 3000 devices a breeze.

There is lagging in some of the authentication tools to support the newer versions, this is happening because they are not supported.

While we like patch management, it would be nice if it could handle patch management for other solutions, like Microsoft.

It would be interesting if the solution offered a way to try to investigate and create a use case to trace vectors.

For buying or deploying it with additional features, apart from VPN client, web security, or antivirus, I would like to see the USB key blocking function included in this solution for endpoint security. For endpoint security, you need antivirus and all of the features included in antivirus software these days, web security, and USB key locking feature. If it is implemented in a way that in one package, you have all the primary features needed for security these days, it would be nice. All of those features will probably be additionally charged as it is a web security feature on FortiClient.

Working with Distribution sometimes comes at a cost due to a lack of knowledge of the current status of your licensing and products.
