Overall Satisfaction with FortiClient

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.
  • It works as a VPN client remote access.
  • It works perfectly on Windows or Mac
  • It acts as a web filter and antivirus
  • On my personal experience it takes its time to load and execute (memory usage)
  • It can disconnect at least once during a session
  • Better web filtering
  • It has made it possible for our company to keep running even if our associates can't make it to their office
  • Allows flexibility for those employees that work outside our headquarters, making possible for the company to hire new talents even though they do not live here. Helps avoid relocation expenses
  • Since it makes possible for people to log in from their homes, this results in more quality time for our families, since the commuting is eliminated or reduced.
I have not used any other products like FortiClient, yet.
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.
