Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

I use FortiClient day-to-day to help working from home staff to access remote connection and share files by installing and configurations. It helps us connect to our office servers while working remotely. Help companies to make investments against cyber-crime and protect their servers by mitigating the risk of cyberattacks from unauthorized access.

Well, its VPN service can be best suited for organizations where employees want to connect to their organization's network securely. It is very demanding in WFH culture where employees can visit their offices as it provides really good security, so any organization that wants their employees to connect to their network can use FortiClient as a solution.

The best scenario for use of FortiClient was made clear to us over the last year and a half. It made the transition from working in the office to working from home seamless. We were fortunate enough to have already implemented FortiClient prior to the shift to working from home, so there was no scramble to get things in place to keep employees productive.

FortiClient is best for the SMEs that are already using the FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall at their office, especially if they have a lot of systems behind their NAT firewall. I recommend using FortiClient because it has a powerful VPN. If you are using a lot of public domains FortiGate may not be well suited for your network. For example, if you are often running a server/system inside the cloud, such as a public cloud, AWS, Google Cloud, or DigitalOcean server, FortiClient is not well suited to your needs.

Forticlient applications are mainly used by us for connecting client-side databases and servers. Sometimes it is used to connect to our own servers when we are out of the office. When we are working from home, this application makes it very useful to do our work without any difficulties.

If you need a lightweight anti-malware solution, this might be it. Mainly if you use Fortinet network devices, FortiClient is an excellent tool that is not worse than any other solution in the market and is reasonably priced. The VPN connection works stable, which is very important for our end users.

FortiClient is well suited to use as a secure external connection during trips, different sites of the Company and home office work. The VPN network crashing in the middle of the day is a real problem sometimes, but it is just needed to re-enter the login and password and the feature starts working again.

FortiClient is great if you frequently connect to a few VPNs, as it lets you save connection profile information including username (and password if you really want insecure convenience) so you can just click a drop-down and go. It also integrates with MFA requirements and will prompt for passcodes if your org requires that.

Forticlient is perfect for remote employees. It works as expected. Once it is set up, you can forget it. It is also great for use in restaurants and hotels. It allows our employees to remotely connect to our offices while hiding the traffic from prying eyes and potential threats while connected to the public internet.

I'm not sure I would be satisfied with FortiClient as my primary AV endpoint protection given the polish of other products like Cb Defense for example (which we also have), but it is also much less expensive and works great as a secondary layer of protection. It also has a lot of promise for customers like us that have invested in the Fortinet series of networking and firewall products due to their security fabric strategy.

FortiClient is very well suited to large enterprises where the IT infrastructure is centrally controlled and administered. This is a perfect market for FortiClient, as it is simple to set up and operate, as a user, and has the bare minimum features needed to get the job done without overcomplicating things.

FortiClient is a great solution for small/mid-sized businesses looking to upgrade their firewall / endpoint management solution and also add advanced VPN and remote access. May not be as ideal for large enterprises or very small companies with minimal IT/networking infrastructure. It was a massive leap forward from our old netgear firewall and brought us into a more sophisticated position for endpoint security and management.

The tool is very good for small business who want to improve security. It's easy to implement and to administrate. Full range of security: antivirus, anti-malware, web filtering, VPN. Daily updates. Very efficient and useful. Quickly Security threats detection. Allows you to make a backup of the configuration. Also, the tool offers a vulnerability scanner.

If you have FortiGate firewalls, then FortiClient is a definite winner. There is no additional cost over the FortiGate's themselves. It allows security at the client side. It provides more detailed user information to the firewall. SSL VPN works wonderfully. The ability to deploy antivirus to BYOD devices through the same client they use to connect is wonderful. Compliance reporting for the end user devices is handy

For business environments where they have little support, so users can easily install things and access sensitive information remotely and securely. Also in environments where they want access to several sites and equipment with average performance.

Since it provides a FREE version it is well suited for small businesses, as well as people that require some sort of flexibility when it comes to working remotely from home or any other place. It comes along with an anti-virus feature, web shield, and can prevent you from scams, so it also provides security to your connection.

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.

One of the cases which we use VPN for is for desktop remote connection, and FortiClient provides a well and stable connection, while at the same time giving you confidence that the data you are working with will be protected, even when using remote connection. This also works well if you want to change your IP address.
