Overall Satisfaction with FortiClient

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 This helps to address the need of accessing files without having to have a copy that might be out-of-date.
  • The connection and browsing of a remote file structure feels just as quick as if you were at the original location, physically connected.
  • File opening is also very quick.
  • This also works great to connect to access software licenses that need to be connected to a company server.
  • It seems that after a long time of not browsing in the remote folder structure it disconnects.
  • It requires signing in every time, but since I'm not at a remote location everyday, maybe there is a setting I'm missing that allows you to automatically connect every login.
  • This has allowed me to be more mobile and visit various project sites and interact with team members there while still connecting to the files I need at the home office.
  • I have the ability to work from home easily.
It performs quick and doesn't tie up a lot of resources.
