Fortinet Fabric Agent for Visibility, Control, and ZTNAProduct Download Zero Trust Access For Dummies
FortiClient is a Fabric Agent that delivers protection, compliance, and secure access in a single, modular lightweight client. A Fabric Agent is a bit of endpoint software that runs on an endpoint, such as a laptop or mobile device, that communicates with the Fortinet Security Fabric to provide information, visibility, and control to that device. It also enables secure, remote connectivity to the Security Fabric.
The FortiClient Fabric Agent can:

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.
Enables the enforcement of enterprise security policy and use criteria such as the severity of unpatched vulnerabilities, running software, web filtering, and security posture.
Automates policy-based response when triggered by security events. For example, automatically quarantine a suspicious or compromised endpoint to contain incidents and prevent outbreaks.
Identifies and prioritizes unpatched OS and software vulnerabilities with flexible patching options including auto-patching.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Senior Consultant IT in the Manufacturing Industry
“This is a solid all-in-one security product that we use to protect our corporate endpoints. The reason for our investment in this product was that we were looking for enhanced security features such as application control and web-filter for our Internet connected endpoints. Since we already had invested a lot in other Fortinet security products, we decided to also implement the FortiClient Endpoint Protection features and that is a decision we do not regret. With FortiClient we got a lot more than just the security features we needed. One of the greatest values was the ease of management and overview of our endpoints. This includes the vulnerability scanner and software inventory that comes with the latest version, which provides us with an overall threat summary of vulnerabilities on our endpoints.”
Cyber Security Leader in the Manufacturing Industry
“Fortinet is extremely easy to work with and their support is excellent. The integration of FortiClient with the overall Fortinet ecosystem is a large advantage for us.”
IT Manager in the Healthcare Industry
“FortiClient brings better endpoint visibility and total control. It knows endpoint vulnerability and only grants endpoint that has minimum requirement.”
Networks & Infrastructure Manager in the Construction Industry
“We deployed FortiClient to replace multiple products from other vendors. It combines multiple functions, VPN, AV, Application Firewall, Web Filtering [additionally, it integrates with] our Security Fabric, Telemetry & Compliance enforcement.”
IT Services Manager in the Education Industry
"A huge bonus is the compliance feature which will scan all programs installed on the endpoint and report back on whether that particular version of the program has vulnerabilities.”
IT Support in the Transportation Industry
“It is a very good product and the best thing is that it is integrated into a solution with both the [endpoint and] firewall, generating greater security of our workstations.”
