EMS

In this scenario, EMS provides FortiClient endpoint provisioning. FortiClient connects Telemetry to EMS to receive configuration information in an endpoint profile from EMS. Note this scenario does not support compliance; it is only for central management of endpoints. Note only EMS can control the connection between FortiClient and EMS. Any changes to the connection must be made from EMS, not FortiClient. When FortiClient is connected to EMS, FortiClient settings are locked so the endpoint user cannot change any configuration. To disconnect FortiClient from EMS, the EMS administrator must deregister the endpoint in EMS.

See the FortiClient Compliance Guide.
