FortiClient

FortiClient is really well suited for providing remote employees super quick access to a local network without needing much technical know-how. The virus scanning and web-blocking is also really great at making sure to keep the spam, ads, and other malicious web connections at bay. I have not run into any specific scenario that FortiClient has not been well suited - All of the scenarios in which I have used FortiClient have all functions really well for me.

Webroot Endpoint Protection

I have only used Endpoint Protection in small to medium businesses and for residential home users. I have not had any experience with larger corporations. Thus far, my experience has been a positive one. Their tech support, which I have called upon several times, has been quite efficient in solving my issue.

Pros

FortiClient

  • [FortiClient] splits the traffic very well. For example, when users connect a VPN to the office they are connecting to the internal system which uses VPN traffic. If users access the public internet they use the internet traffic, but [Fortinet] does not route this traffic back to the office.

Webroot Endpoint Protection

  • Screens incoming e-mails for threats
  • Blocks potentially dangerous websites
  • Removes infected files from downloaded materials

Cons

FortiClient

  • font way too small on login, unable to select an option, for example, to see each letter of password as typed promotes errors at login
  • login errors and failure rate extremely high as [reported] by all our physicians and other providers: not infrequently one will have to return to office after hours in order to complete charts or access charts to answer patient after hours questions
  • frequent disconnects in spite of excellent internet signal
  • unacceptable interruptions in patient care

Webroot Endpoint Protection

  • I would like to see an option for automatic cleanup of duplicate Agents. Occasionally, a machine will show up twice and one of the Agents will show as disconnected. I'm not entirely sure if this is from updates or something weird in Windows. We stay on top of cleaning this up on a regular basis, but for instances where the names are similar enough to detect duplicates, it would be nice to automate this and then have a report sent showing what was cleaned up in case there was a mistake.

Because the software is very simple and easy to use, very efficient, and has a stable connection that allows the user to perform tasks without problems. Also, this software does not need to be configured by IT technicians, since it comes with a very developed and understandable set up guide.

Usability is pretty solid. It is not as easy to manage and adjust if you are not a trained IT professional, which requires smaller companies without IT staff to reply on outsourced IT partners. The user interface is a bit clunky, but you can generally figure out what you need to do, it just takes a little bit of time and effort.

FortiClient is a security suite with which we can keep our equipment well-protected. And it is that in a system like Windows, which is always the target of all kinds of attacks, it is not enough to have a simple antivirus.

I rate Webroot Endpoint Protection with an 8 because of how well it protects our computers both via web browsing as well as scanning in the background without interfering with staff usage of their computers.

Alternatives Considered

FortiClient

Meraki MX has a much more basic set of features compared to FortClient and the Fortinet ecosystem of devices and software. Setting up a FortiGate with FortiClient can take a little more time, but the feature set is much richer. We use Meraki MX is a few offices, but are now converting many of them over to the FortiClient and Fortinet suite of security devices and software.

Webroot Endpoint is just Virus Protect and a good one

Return on Investment

FortiClient

  • The free version of FortiClient VPN works great.
  • The fact that we have to pay for any version beyond 6.0.3 to connect to our firewalls that we already pay for licensing on is a little silly.
  • There is some support overhead with our clients and users to keep the software updated since it doesn't upgrade to new major versions automatically.
Eric Engardio | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webroot Endpoint Protection

  • The licenses are pretty expensive but less costly than an actual malware infestation.
  • We have tremendous peace of mind knowing that our machines and communications are secure.
  • Our IT consultants are a little more involved in day-to-day management than they were before deploying Webroot Endpoint Protection, which means an increase in cost, but again this is a fair price to pay for protection against Internet threats.
