Secure VPN access for remote network users that is free but takes to long to install
What is our primary use case?
Our primary use for FortiClient is just for its capability to securely connect VPN users from outside our environment during the lockdown. It has strong authentication. We use it for a VPN client for our network users. They just connect to our network in order to get access to our enterprise environment and for the EFT (Electronic File Transfer) system.
Pros and Cons
It supports securely connections for VPN users from outside our environment during the lockdown.
It seems to be more scalable than we thought.
The technical support from Fortinet and local vendors is good.
It takes too long to install.
The user interface could be more inviting.
Cost and Licensing Advice
We are using the free version of this product.
What other advice do I have?
I can definitely encourage other people to use the FortiClient VPN. FortiClient is a pretty great solution for the VPN. On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I can rate FortiClient as a seven-out-of-ten from my experience with this product over the past six months.
