FortiClient (formerly FortiClient Standard) 5.2.1.0605

An intuitive and powerful application that will help you seamlessly protect your computer against several types of internet malware
The Internet is a dangerous place, regardless of the applications you computer is equipped with while surfing. However, there are specialized applications such as FortiClient that are specially designed to maximize your web surfing experience with several real-time protection methods.

Lightweight and easy to use

The application houses its features in a visually appealing interface, with no shiny elements to create confusion, or shallow information to get you lost. It uses a modest amount of resources and not does it require much space on your hard disk drive to be deployed.

Customize the way you are protected

There are three major, fully customizable components you gain access to. These are found in a side panel, selecting one spreading its content in the main workspace. When you don't need to handle related options, the applications stays hidden in the system tray.

Keeps malicious infiltrations at bay

One of the most important features is the integrated antivirus which aims to ensure maximum, real-time protection against file based malware, malicious websites, phishing and spam URLs. In addition, you can manually trigger a scan process of your computer to check if any infiltrations are present.

The application gives you the possibility to issue a quick, full or custom scan, which lets you select just a folder to put under the scope. Regardless of your choice, the process does not take a lot of time and seems to be pretty effective. Moreover, a thorough scheduler is put at your disposal and you can also manage quarantined files or site violations.

Restrict access to harmful websites

Another useful feature is strictly related to Internet access, as the name suggests, web security. It aims to restrict you from visiting websites with inappropriate content, offering several predefined suggestions. Various categories can be banned like adult/mature content, bandwidth consuming, general interest, potentially liable and unrated, each with its own list of content restrictions.

An exclusion list can also be managed, as well as enable a safe search method or even a YouTube Education Filter for better parental control. Violations can be viewed to get an idea what websites are frequently accessed.

To end with

Taking everything into consideration, we can say that FortiClient manages to live up to expectations, providing a handful of tools to restrict access to harmful sites while your system is kept safe by an antivirus component. Its features make it suitable for both at home or business environments.
