FortiClient is a complete security package for Windows which includes an antivirus scanner, firewall, web filtering and also a network optimizing utility.
The program's name isn't exactly well-known which may be a cause for concern when it comes to malware protection. Its antivirus side includes real-time protection, automatic updates, a quarantine function and a tool which monitors modifications to the Windows Registry.
Aside from antivirus, FortiClient provides other modules which are handy including an effective firewall. The firewall can manage advanced rules and can define security zones while providing full support for VPN connections and WAN optimization.
Parental Control functions include protecting minors against online content such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, illegal or unethical content and more.
FortiClient provides two different modes, depending on how advanced and the level of customization required. The first is for general users while the second "managed mode" provides more of the nitty gritty for advanced users and administrators.
