What's New

The core features of FortiClient EMS 6.0.1 include the following:

Enhanced FortiClient integration with FortiSandbox scanning

EMS retrieves the list of file types from FortiSandbox. The EMS administrator may create endpoint profiles with predefined or custom lists of file types, and assign the same to endpoint groups.

Through EMS, FortiClient is able to receive a list of valid file types to monitor locally. New files introduced into the local file system with matching file types are sent to the FortiSandbox.

This feature requires FortiClient (Windows) 6.0.1 and FortiSandbox 3.0.0

EMS REST API - Web Filter profile update

The EMS administrator may import endpoint profiles from FortiManager. The existing feature to import endpoint profiles from FortiGate has been improved.

License expiry grace period

When the license expires, the number of supported FortiClient instances remains unchanged for a few days. This allows the EMS administrator some time to download a renewal license from FortiCare and upload it to EMS.

During this grace period, the EMS GUI displays the license status as Expired, along with a link to upload a renewal license. The GUI shows the number of seats available as 10.

After the grace period is over, the number of supported FortiClient instances goes back to 10 and the license status changes to Trial, unless (and until) the renewal license is uploaded.

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.
