FortiClient Lite is a comprehensive and reliable piece of software functioning as an anti-virus solution, with multiple other functions that you can use to fully control your computer.
The tool is fairly simple to install and work with, launching straight to the notification area for easier access. Its main window enables you to view the date of the 'Last Scan' and decide whether it would be necessary to perform a new one.
Additionally, it lets you activate or deactivate real time protection and access the 'Quarantine' section, where you can either restore or delete items. Similarly, you can open and edit the 'Exclusion List', by adding the files or directories you want to skip during scans. This whoever requires administrator privileges.
Moreover, FortiClient Lite allows you to set up regular scans using the scheduler. They can be run 'Daily', 'Weekly' or 'Monthly', on a user-defined date and at a preferred hour, so as to interfere as little as possible with your other activities. You can choose between a 'Quick System Scan', a 'Full System Scan' or a 'Custom Scan'.
FortiClient Lite also enables you to activate a series of 'Parental Control' restrictions, using a profile which can prevent access to URLs related to 'Gambling', 'Alcohol', 'Pornography' and a variety of other websites, helping you make sure your children do not read possibly harmful material online. At the same time, it provides you with the number of 'Violations' in the last week.
The 'Application Firewall' helps you block programs which comply with specific rules, such as 'Botnet'. From the 'Remote Access' section, you can configure your VPN settings and be able to connect to remote systems. Furthermore, FortiClient Lite features a 'Vulnerability Scan' function that you can use to determine if any urgent updates are required, along with their corresponding 'Severity' level ('Critical', 'High', 'Medium', 'Low' or 'Info').
To summarize, FortiClient Lite is a user-friendly and quite helpful application that enables you to heuristically protect your PC from threats and attacks, while also being able to restrict access to certain programs or websites.
