FortiClient Standard Editor's Review

Every computer user needs to have adequate protection for his system and this holds true for corporate and network users. In business setups, where multiple desktops and servers are connected to a network, using regular antivirus suite may be inadequate. If you want a feature packed and effective malware solution for a corporate network, give FortiClient standard a try. To get complete protection from FortiGate, the company behind the app, you need to use VPN or a corporate network. This freeware tool offers much more than standalone antivirus including parental control, content filtering system.

FortiClient's installer is small in size and the procedure is quite simple. It is nice that the installer runs a malware scan prior to running proper installation module. The pre install scan can also be made to run in safe mode. In a network setup, system administrators can pick which components of the program should be installed. Home users cannot install its firewall component. It supports PCs with Windows XP and subsequent versions. It is meant for use with a specialized network appliance, but the app also serves as a standalone antivirus with add-ons.

FortiClient comes with a clean UI where each module is clearly defined for easy access. The app’s web content filter component is versatile in functioning. It is behind the parental control system, URL scan and Phishing protection module. In real world scenario, it beats many standalone antivirus apps in identifying fraudulent websites. Its malicious url detection is good but not the best in its segment.

FortiClient excels in malware detection but strangely it does not send the detected files to quarantine by default. It has high malware detection and neutralizing rate. The app also gets good marks from independent testing labs. It gets top notch scores from ICSA Labs and Virus Bulletin, for example.

FortiClient is not the fastest PC security solution and based on your PCs and content, the initial scan can be quite time consuming. As expected, subsequent scans tend to be quicker. The app’s Parental Control module offers protection from websites belonging to 70 problematic categories. It can block access to sites that have legal liability issues for professional usage too.

The app enforces Safe Search in major search engines. The parental control system is completely browser independent and immune to network command disabling threats. Since the software can filter HTTPS sites, an employee cannot evade coverage by using anonymizing proxy websites. Disabling its parental control component is not recommended as doing so will also turn off protection against malicious and phishing sites. FortiClient also comes with an inbuilt vulnerability scanner component.

If you lack access to a VPN server it is possible to configure FortiClient to establish link to it. It supports IPsec VPN and SSL-VPN modes. Point to Point Tunneling Protocol type of VPN is not supported.

Positive Points:
•    Pre install malware scan, safe mode support.
•    Excellent phishing site detection.
•    Good malware detection.
•    Inbuilt Firewall, parental control module.

Negative Points:
•    Parental control disabling can be disastrous.
•    VPN client offers limited support for VPN types.

Conclusion:
FortiClient Standard is a powerful and easy to use workplace security solution that serves as an anti malware tool and offers many more features. You get in built VPN client and firewall. The performance in phishing site and malware detection is top notch among freeware security app. Inbuilt vulnerability scanner is an excellent add-on. However, its parental control system can be a double edged sword, which can be disastrous if you disable the feature. Its support for limited VPN types can also be unsuitable for some network or home users.

Rating: 3.5/5
