What needs improvement?

We had some issues using IPsec as a remote tunnel protocol and we had to change those configurations from IPsec to SSL. That was the only issue we had with FortiClient during the four… more»

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

Licensing was free up to ten users and after that, it was pretty reasonable.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

What other advice do I have?

I would advise someone considering this solution to use as much functionality as possible on the endpoint. I would rate it a seven out of ten. It fills remote access needs. I give it… more»

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

Anyone can download this product for free, but you have to have a FortiGate gateway that you are connecting to.

The other one that we use is AnyConnect, which is for the majority of our remote users. Only one of our partners requires… more»

We're using it for anti-virus, and its performance is okay.

FortiClient has good signatures, good protection and, up until recently, it integrated really well with our firewall.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

The stability is excellent.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

FortiClient Projects By Members

What is FortiClient?

Securing your endpoints against sophisticated threats on a myriad of devices can be very challenging:

  • Managing separate endpoint features is complex and time-consuming.
  • Disparate security products don't share intelligence, resulting in slow threat response.
  • Lack of InfoSec expertise to effectively administer endpoint security can let threats slip through your defenses.
