Fortinet FortiClient Review

Supports two-factor authentication, easy to use, but VPN connection needs to be more secure


What is our primary use case?

We use FortiClient to connect to our network and to access our internal resources.

What is most valuable?

The Fortinet FortiClient is simple to use.

It is easy to install and it supports two-factor authentication.

It has good reporting. It's user-friendly and has good documentation.

What needs improvement?

We have been facing some issues when we use the web browser to log into the VPN gateway and we use the SSL VPN through the web page and have found that the browser is unstable.

It is difficult to get logs for the client on the firewall.

Technical support can be improved. While they respond quickly they don't resolve the issues quickly.

I have yet to find the benefits of the latest upgraded version.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Fortinet FortiClient for one or two years.

We are using the latest version.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I find it to be stable, but we want to enhance the VPN connection.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not tried to scale it yet.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have contacted technical support, and they respond very quickly.

There times that they cannot address the issues that have and spend a lot of time trying to support us.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. It's quite easy to setup.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I don't have the licensing schema for the VPN solution because we just purchased the VPN gateway.

What other advice do I have?

We are evaluating solutions to enhance the protection for the endpoint that has been installed on laptops or PCs, for when they take the laptop or PC out of our office and connected it to the internet.

We want to find a comfortable solution for the ACL or EDR.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
