It provides desktop protection / antivirus that works jointly with FortiGate firewalls. Together, they provide single pane of glass security.
What is a Fabric Agent?
It’s a bit of software that runs on an endpoint such as a laptop or mobile device. It “talks” with the Fortinet Security Fabric to provide information and control to that device. FortiClient also secures remote connection to the Security Fabric. Basically, it’s a full fledged VPN outbound connection editor. You can set up SSL-VPN and IPsec VPN connections here and edit client settings.
As a self-managed solution, FortiClient is very easy to use. It simply runs off the default scanning and firewall configs in FortiGate. Used this way, the program’s core components can be set up in just a couple of clicks. And, FortiClient is easy to use with any WiFi connection. That means you don’t have to worry about having limited access from an airport, hotel room, coffee shop, etc.
In addition, it’s a very good endpoint protection, stopping known vulnerabilities in their tracks. FortiClient also features behavior based detection which helps protect against zero day attacks. It is even good for vulnerability scanning.
Designed as a simple, easy to use endpoint solution to an Enterprise Management Service, FortiClient is a very solid solution with a very budget friendly price. If you have any questions, please email us or call Corporate Armor at 877-449-0458. FortiClient datasheet
