FortiClient: Next gen endpoint protection & remote access

Advanced network security, simplified

Fortinet FortiClient is purpose-built to simplify advanced security capabilities, so even small business owners with limited IT staff or resources can roll out enterprise-grade networking. Looking to keep remote worker endpoints sanitary? FortiClient unifies all the endpoint features you expect out of a premium end user platform including secure remote access, sandboxing, and behavior-based scanning for ransomware and encrypted malware.

Fortinet brings it together with seamless Security Fabric Integration, ensuring that all of the Fortinet security fabric components such as FortiGate Firewalls, FortiAnalyzer, wireless APs, and managed switches share a unified view of every endpoint. Automated advanced threat prevention through the use of FortiSandbox catches both known and never-seen-before threats. This integrated framework is centrally managed on the single-pane-of-glass dashboard offered through a FortiGate next generation firewall. This is fast to set up, too! You’re one FortiClient download away from securing all of your endpoints, on-premise or remote. Activation codes are typically delivered next business day.

Remote access with auto-connecting FortiClient VPN

With companies rushing to get remote workers set up on secure remote connections, many small business owners are turning to FortiClient VPN which takes advantage of both SSL VPN and IPSec VPN to provide secure remote access over the fastest and most stable protocol available. This means almost any Internet-connected location can offer secure access to company applications and resources, regardless of the details of its environment. FortiClient automatically connects endpoints to VPNs and maintains an always-up connection, so remote workers require little to no training on how to connect to a VPN from home – or anywhere else.

FortiClient increases visibility & control over endpoints

FortiClient provides end-to-end visibility into all of the endpoints on a network, allowing administrators to view endpoint health at a glance. By integrating endpoints into the Fortinet Security Fabric, the endpoint protection systems, firewall, and security services on the network communicate in real-time to ensure system compromises never go unnoticed. This translates into early detection for network administrators in case of an attack, allowing IT teams to respond quickly.

The FortiOS 6.0 operating system enables endpoint telemetry intelligence, which accurately identifies Indicators of Compromise. Fortinet determines what constitutes an Indicator of Compromise by checking real-time web filter logs on each endpoint against a threat database groomed by FortiGuard Labs. If a potential match is flagged, Fortinet assigns a threat score to that endpoint, measuring overall end user health and reporting this data back to a centrally-managed dashboard through the FortiGate firewall. Plus, network administrators love the automated response capabilities that FortiClient’s telemetry allows, letting them quarantine suspicious endpoints on the fly.

Stop advanced threats like ransomware

FortiGuard Labs provides up-to-the-second threat protection based on real-world data collected from security sensors around the globe. FortiSandbox harnesses this threat intelligence for behavioral scans of all files & applications present on FortiClient endpoints. That means even if threats are hidden in encrypted data packets, FortiClient will root them out and send them to quarantine before any payloads can detonate. Email-borne threats–especially dangerous to remote workers–are blunted thanks to these real-time scans and shared intelligence.

Advanced Threat Protection with FortiClient next generation endpoint

 

Don’t believe us that FortiClient is a next generation endpoint service? Industry validation titans such as NSS Labs and Gartner consistently stand behind this solution, providing top marks for FortiClient in annual benchmarking tests. In the NSS Labs 2019 Advanced Endpoint Test, Fortinet’s FortiClient blocked 100% of malware thrown at it. See how to get FortiClient for your business.
