We use this tool for remote access including laptops and computers for working from home staff. Prevent unauthorised access. Also works as antivirus to detect any potential virus and threats from our devices. Protects staff by using Multifactor Authentication when they have to connect in VPN Connection is more secured between FortiGate firewall and encryption to access our servers and network devices.

FortiClient VPN service allows users to connect to their organization's network from their home or any other network. Their strong security prevents malicious sites and MITM attacks that can be done by attackers. The best part is that their VPN is free to use and really easy to set up on any device.

We currently are using FortiClinet in our organization across multiple locations for secure VPN access into our network. We implemented this program before the shift to working from home in 2020 and it made the transition extremely smooth for everyone across the organization. Recently, we combined this with M365 in order to allow for MFA authentication to further secure connections from individuals workings from home.

FortiClient has been used on around 300 devices inside our organization. We have a system that runs behind the firewall (Fortigate NGW) and NAT, so FortiClient plays an important role in allowing users to connect a VPN to use the internal system. Also, all users are working from home so they need to connect a VPN to the office to be able to work.

In our organization, we use FortiClient for multiple things, like connecting with the client's servers to access their data and connect with our servers when we are outside of the organization . It's working good for us. Whenever I am doing work from home, FortiClient helps me connect to our organizational servers. I haven't faced any major issues.

We have been using FortiClient as our endpoint security for the past five years. We integrate it with our FortiGate firewall for improved network and malware security. It has it's own web filtering option, which can protect you against malicious and dangerous sites when you're connected to unsecured networks. It updates it's database constantly, so you don't have to worry about new threats. It has its own built-in VPN, which you can use to connect to your private network through the Fortinet firewall.

We are using FortiClient both for the anti-malware solution for all our endpoints as well as the VPN client to connect laptops to the corporate network. As we are using Fortinet network devices, it's also used for connection to the "security fabric" and allows us to use .1x more securely with some additional security checks.
Since the implementation three years ago, we are happy with this solution mainly because it doesn't give any performance issues on the workstations itself even when the full scan is launched.

FortiClient is used at our company across the whole organization. We are using it around the world as a VPN Tunnel to connect to the corporate network. FortiClient is allowing users to have a secure external connection during trips and home office work. Sometimes the VPN network crashes in the middle of the day but maybe it is related to the local internet connection.

I use it to access a customer's network and I need to trust it. And I do. It helps me do my job and I'm not worried about my data or my customer's network being sniffed, the service seems to be reliable. I connect once a day and the connection lasts all the time. It doesn't route all my traffic to the destination VPN server, instead, only the resources being accessed in their network are transferred by FortiClient.

We use FortiClient VPN in our organization to quickly connect to several different SSL-VPN capable Fortigate firewalls across the country. Right now we have about 20 in production and we frequently need to bounce from firewall to firewall as we support our different environments. FortiClient makes working with Fortigate firewalls extremely easy.

I've been using FortiClient when out at remote job sites or at home to connect to the main office server to access files just as if I was physically at the office. I believe this app is made available to most employees working remotely as their main duties. This helps to address the need of accessing files without having to have a copy that might be out-of-date.

Forticlient is being used company-wide. This helps our end users to access our internal network from remote locations across the globe. We have been using this client for two years without any issues. It is very reliable and easy to setup especially with users that do not have a well-versed tech background.

FortiClient is being used as an endpoint protection client in conjunction with Cb Defense. We are deploying 100 clients as a small scale test across many departments with the intent to use it organization-wide. It also has the capability of adding web filtering to remote field laptops so we are also testing that. We are adding it as another layer at the desktop, it is part of what Fortinet calls a security fabric. FortiClient works in concert with their FortiSwitches, FortiAP, and FortiGate and can when fully configured supposedly disconnect an infected client at any point in the stream.

FortiClient is being used across the whole company as the primary VPN solution to connect to a FortiGate. It solves a major problem of being able to collaborate with employees across multiple business sites with the peace of mind that the data is safe at both ends of the connection, as well as along the way.

We went with FortiClient at the recommendation of our IT partner when we were looking for a more sophisticated firewall and endpoint protection solution. Additionally, we also needed a VPN solution for remote employees and FortiClient offered the security and VPN access that we needed. We use the platform across our entire company and it has added additional layers of security, management and VPN.

FortiClient is used across the organization, it allows secure connectivity (VPN Tunnel) for users on external networks (business trips, home, etc.) into the organization's internal networks. It also allows our network admins to control specific users' access to networks and resources as they connect via the VPN by defining various rules related to the user logged in (which is identified by his username and password).

The attorneys and paralegals in our firm use Forticlient for secure remote access to our network. We were using Microsoft Remote Desktop (RDP) in the past but we were getting hammered by brute force attacks so we switched to using Forticlient and all of our attacker issues ended.

Forticlient is a good tool that offers threat protection, visibility, and control. Is easy to set up and maintain. It's great for small business in that way, because it means you can install it and have some piece of mind without any more configuration. We also use it for VPNs, and it does a great job.

The initial reason for selecting Forticlient was to use SSL VPN access for our remote users through our FortiGate Firewalls. In examining the solution we found a number of boxes we could check with this one piece of software. Forticlient is being used by our userbase for VPN access, antivirus (limited deployment), compliance monitoring and for web filtering at the client level.

FortiClient, is our VPN connection client. It is used in both Windows and Mac OS X. It is used by all departments. Most have access to the corporate network from the outside, so the best way to access the network is with FortiClient. This application helps us solve the problem of accessing information from the outside. It is a simple application to use and to configure, with the steps that the administrator sends it is easy to do it.

My company uses FortiClient to enable their employees to work from home when this is required. It helps us to log in from our homes and work remotely from there. It basically helps the company to make sure an associate is able to log in, wherever he/she is, despite the fact that he was not able to make it to the physical office, due to external issues such as car accidents on their way to work, roadblocks, weather conditions, etc.

Our entire organization uses FortiClient. We have a large number of employees that either work remote, travel frequently, or otherwise work outside of our secure network that need access to private and proprietary files - FortiClient is the tool we use to seamlessly allow all authorized users access to our network. FortiClient addresses the issue of keeping all employees connected to the same network, no matter how geographically dispersed they are.

FortiClient is a very simple software that is being used mainly for VPN purposes. Very secure software which you can rely on. The level of protection that it comes with is something you appreciate for the price. Very convenient, since setting it up it does not take a lot of knowledge at all.
