What's New

The core features of FortiClient EMS 6.0.0 include the following:

Chromebook management merged to regular FortiClient EMS

You can now use a single FortiClient EMS console to manage all FortiClient platforms, including Chromebooks. All FortiClient endpoints can be managed from a single FortiClient EMS installation. Previously, a separate FortiClient EMS for Chromebooks install was needed to manage Chromebook clients.

Automatic quarantine from Fortinet Security Fabric

FortiClient EMS 6.0.0 supports automatic quarantine of suspicious FortiClient endpoints from the Security Fabric. An automated rule can be defined in FortiOS 6.0 to quarantine suspicious (IOC) FortiClient endpoints.

Automatic group assignment

Automatic group assignment allows you to dynamically group endpoints based on installer tags. Instead of manually creating or moving endpoints to custom groups, you can create rules which allow FortiClient EMS to automatically create dynamic groups and move endpoints to preassigned groups.

Quarantine file management

FortiClient EMS 6.0.0 introduces central quarantine management, which shows a central view of all file-based threats detected and quarantined by FortiClient. You can restore and whitelist a quarantined file on endpoints with a single click in the case of false-positive detections. This feature requires FortiClient 6.0.0 or later versions.

Endpoint installed software inventory

FortiClient EMS 6.0.0 introduces the Software Inventory management feature where administrators can centrally track software usage for all managed endpoints. The Inventory dashboard includes the name, publisher, and version of software installed on all managed endpoints.

Customize endpoint system quarantine message

You can now customize the quarantine message displayed on a user's FortiClient Console. This feature requires FortiClient 6.0.0 or later versions.

FortiClient local update server

Micro-FortiGuard Server for FortiClient is a local update server for FortiClient endpoints. FortiClient can receive software and signature updates locally from Micro-FortiGuard Server for FortiClient instead of reaching out to FortiGuard Distribution Server, helping save WAN bandwidth. It is recommended that organizations with more than 5000 FortiClient endpoints use Micro-FortiGuard Server for FortiClient to receive local updates.

For details, see the Micro-FortiGuard Server for FortiClient Administrator Guide that is available on the Fortinet Document Library under FortiClient EMS.
