Overall Satisfaction with FortiClient

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.

Pros

  • Activating the connection with the office is very simple. Just select the icon in FortiClient, enter your credentials and go.
  • I have noticed that when I use FortiClient, I am in the network of my office, even the access controls of my equipment are activated.
  • It is available on the Internet, so that we can download it to users without waiting for the installation by an administrator.

Cons

  • The client in the version for MacOS X is limited and not friendly. In some cases it is frozen.
  • The antivirus installation option is still present, when the installer was previously instructed not to install. Although it is not activated, it is confusing for the user. The non-expert user may believe that the firewall antivirus is activated for his computer and it is not true. The best thing is that if it is installed, do not show the option.
  • It should have a version only for VPN connection, since there is a company like the one I work in, which has other security solutions that are independent.
  • The access of our engineers to information of the projects, allows us to fulfill the delivery of our clients from any place.
  • The technical staff that gathers the information in the field, uploads this information to our network and in the offices we can process the information without having to wait at the end of the week.
FortiClient is easier to use and configure and offers security according to market standards. My position within the company is just to use the program, it was not my decision to choose it, but I think they made a good decision.
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.
