FortiClient: Seguridad de endpoint de última generación

Magic Quadrant de plataformas de protección de endpoint (EPP) de Gartner 2018

FortiClient Overview

Endpoints are frequently the target of initial compromise or attacks. One recent study found that 30% of breaches involved malware being installed on endpoints. FortiClient strengthens endpoint security through integrated visibility, control, and proactive defense. With the ability to discover, monitor, and assess endpoint risks, you can ensure endpoint compliance, mitigate risks, and reduce exposure. FortiClient proactively defends against advanced attacks. Its tight integration with the Security Fabric enables policy-based automation to contain threats and control outbreaks. FortiClient is compatible with Fabric-Ready partners to further strengthen enterprises’ security posture.

FortiClient Product Details:

FortiClient is more than advanced endpoint protection. As an integrated agent, FortiClient contains three key modules: Fabric Agent for security Fabric connectivity, the endpoint security modules, and the secure remote access modules. Fabric Agent shares endpoint telemetry with the Security Fabric and delivers broad endpoint visibility, compliance control, and vulnerability management. It provides advanced endpoint protection with pattern-based anti-malware, behavior-based exploit protection, web-filtering, and an application firewall. FortiClient natively integrates with FortiSandbox to detect zero-day threats and custom malware. FortiClient also provides secure remote access with built-in VPN, single-sign-on, and two-factor authentication for added security.

Endpoint telemetry for visibility

FortiClient shares endpoint telemetry with the Security Fabric to ensure unified endpoint awareness and deliver integrated endpoint and network security. Endpoint information shared includes device information, OS, security status, vulnerabilities, events, and user ID.

Compliance enforcement

Enables the enforcement of enterprise security policy and use criteria such as the severity of unpatched vulnerabilities, running software, web filtering, and security posture. 

Automation/host quarantine

Automates policy-based response when triggered by security events. For example, automatically quarantine a suspicious or compromised endpoint to contain incidents and prevent outbreaks.

Vulnerability management

Identifies and prioritizes unpatched OS and software vulnerabilities with flexible patching options including auto-patching.

Software inventory

Provides visibility of installed software. In addition to managing licenses, software inventory can improve security hygiene. When software installed is not required for business purposes, it unnecessarily introduces potential vulnerabilities, and thereby increases the likelihood of compromise.

Anti-malware leverages FortiGuard Content Pattern Recognition Language (CPRL) , machine learning, and AI to protect endpoint against malware. The pattern-based CPRL is highly effective in detecting and blocking polymorphic malware. It also blocks attack channels and malicious websites.


Protects against advanced threats exploiting zero-day and unpatched vulnerabilities. This signature-less and behavioral-based technology detects and blocks memory violation techniques. It shields web browsers, java/flash plug-ins, office applications, PDF readers, load library, and script interpreters from exploit-based attacks.

Web filtering

Powered by FortiGuard research, the web filtering function monitors all web browser activities to enforce web security and acceptable usage policy with 75+ categories. It works across all supported operating systems and works with Google SafeSearch. Admins can set black/white lists, on-/off-net policies, and import FortiGate web filtering policies for consistent enforcement. 

Application firewall

Provides the ability to monitor, allow, or block application traffic by categories. It uses the same categories as FortiGate, enabling consistent application traffic control. It leverages FortiGuard anti-botnet, IPS, and application control intelligence and can prevent the use of unwanted applications including proxy apps and HTTPS messaging apps.

FortiClient leverages the Security Fabric Architecture and integrates with many Security Fabric components:


FortiClient natively integrates with FortiSandbox. FortiClient automatically submits files to the sandbox for real-time analysis. Real-time threat intelligence from FortiSandbox is instantly shared across the enterprise.  


FortiClient shares endpoint telemetry with FortiGate enterprise firewalls to enforce endpoint security compliance.  FortiClient telemetry also contributes to the security rating. The diverse VPN client provides secure remote access.


In addition to endpoint telemetry, FortiClient sends logs including vulnerability, traffic, and events for the Network Operation Center (NOC) and Security Operation Center (SOC) for threat analysis and forensic investigation. 


Enables secure sign-on (SSO) and two-factor authentication.


FortiClient uses SSL and IPsec VPN to provide secure and reliable access to the corporate network. Two-factor authentication can also be leveraged for additional security. Features such as always-on, auto-connect, dynamic VPN gateway selection and split-tunneling, result in optimized user experience and security. 

Single sign-on

It integrates with FortiAuthenticator identity and access management service to provide single sign-on. 

EMS provides central management of Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, and Chromebook devices. Features include remote endpoint deployment, client provisioning, Windows AD integration, real-time endpoint status, vulnerability dashboard, software inventory, quarantine management, alerts, and more.

What is Fabric Agent?

Fabric Agent, one of the FortiClient modules, connects endpoints and integrates endpoints into the Security Fabric. Fabric Agent sends endpoint telemetry with the Security Fabric. Information shared includes risk profile, unpatched vulnerabilities, operating systems, protection status. User, device ID, and endpoint behavior data can be shared too.

Can FortiClient help us mitigate endpoint vulnerabilities?

Yes, when unpatched vulnerabilities are discovered during the scan, FortiClient provides flexible patching options including auto patching.  Additionally, administration can define endpoint compliance policy to monitor unpatched vulnerabilities and their severity.

How does FortiClient prevent exploit-based attacks?

FortiClient endpoint protection capabilities feature anti-exploit, a behavioral-based detection technology that protects against memory exploitation techniques and exploit kits. 

With vulnerability management, FortiClient helps companies improve security hygiene and provides visualization for the network security team to identify vulnerable endpoints and mitigate the risks.

How does FortiClient integrate with FortiSandbox?

FortiClient integrates natively with FortiSandbox and can automatically submit objects to the sandbox for analysis. What’s unique about Fortinet is that the sandbox infrastructure can be shared across FortiGate, FortiMail, and partners. The threat intelligence is automatically disseminated across the enterprise.

I have a FortiGate, can I try FortiClient and endpoint telemetry feature?

Yes, you can download FortiClient and EMS from the product download page. Your FortiGate can receive telemetry from up to 10 client for testing.

What endpoint telemetry does Fabric Agent send?

FortiClient telemetry data include: Endpoint operation system, device ID (such as MAC), logged-in user ID with avatar, endpoint protection (AV) status, endpoint vulnerabilities, endpoint behavior data, FortiClient version, and the device online/offline status.
