The features I have found to be most valuable are the levels of encryption I can enact and the compression I can apply to improve throughput.

Provided the easiest UX for our end-users and had the greatest interoperability with all the operating systems we used, including but not limited to: iOS, Android, OS X, Windows, and Linux.

How does Fortinet FortiClient compare with Open VPN Access Server? Which is the better choice and why?

Fortinet FortiClient is a feature-rich solution that is easy to use and deploy without sacrificing safety and security. It has a very fast connection rate and has a built-in VPN. With this solution, you can assign a different VPN or network for each user, once they are authenticated. Fortinet FortiClient is very scalable and easy to use. This is an all-in-one solution with very high throughput. We did find, though, that it was lagging in some authentication tools, especially with the newer versions. Installation can take a very long time. Deployment with Mac devices and even some WIndows based-devices can be problematic. The stability could be improved too - it can be very buggy at times, especially with the EMS. Support could be better too. Open VPN Access Server is easy to set up and use. It is a stable solution that offers multi-authentication and the support is quite good. It is an open-source solution so it is very affordable. While it scales vertically with some difficulty and downtime, it does not scale horizontally. Some of our clients indicated that this solution did not meet all of their security protocols. They could do with better intrusion protection and detection. Conclusion We have a very large, diverse client base and need a solution that provides for excellent scalability and can completely satisfy the numerous different security protocols they all require. Fortinet FortiClient was the best fit for our organization and our clients are very satisfied.
