FortiClient

Multi-function endpoint agent

FortiClient’s Fortinet Security Fabric integration provides endpoint visibility through telemetry and ensures that all Security Fabric components – FortiGate, FortiAnalyzer, EMS, managed APs, managed Switches, and FortiSandbox – have a unified view of endpoints in order to provide tracking and awareness, compliance enforcement, and reporting. Traditional virtual private network (VPN) tunnels or new, automatic ZTNA tunnels provide secure remote connectivity. Provide security and protection for endpoints when local or remote.

FortiClient integrates the endpoints into Fortinet’s Security Fabric for early detection and prevention of advanced threats. This integration delivers native endpoint visibility, compliance control, vulnerability management, and automation. FortiOS and FortiAnalyzer leverage FortiClient endpoint telemetry intelligence to identify indicators of compromise. With the automation capability, administrators can investigate in real time and set policies to automate responses, including quarantining suspicious or compromised endpoints to contain incidents and stem outbreaks. Fortinet’s endpoint compliance and vulnerability management features simplify the enforcement of enterprise security policies preventing endpoints from becoming easy attack targets.

Features and Benefits

Web Filtering
and SAAS Control

FortiClient provides remote web filtering, delivering web security and content filtering. The web application firewall provides botnet protection and granular application traffic control including web-based applications and software as a service (SaaS).

ZTNA

FortiClient ZTNA works with FortiOS to enable secure granular access to applications no matter if the user is local or remote. Each session is initiated with an automatic, encrypted tunnel from FortiClient to the FortiOS proxy point for user and device verification. If verified, access is granted for that session.

VPN

FortiClient provides flexible options for VPN connectivity. It supports both secure sockets layer (SSL) and Internet Protocol security (IPsec) VPN. The split tunneling feature enables remote users on SSL VPNs to access the Internet without their traffic having to pass through the corporate VPN headend, as in a typical SSL VPN tunnel.

Endpoint Hygiene

FortiClient helps organizations reduce their attack surface with vulnerability scanning and optional autopatching. Combined with zero trust access principles, this approach can enhance an organization’s hygiene and security posture.

Malware and Exploit Prevention

By integrating with FortiClient Cloud Sandbox and leveraging FortiGuard global threat intelligence, FortiClient prevents advanced malware and vulnerabilities from being exploited.

Ransomware Protection

Ransomware attacks have increased recently. In response, FortiClient has introduced new ransomware protection, with the ability to roll back changes made by malicious programs, putting the endpoint back to a preinfection state.
