With introduction of the Fortinet Security Fabric, FortiClient profiles will be updated on FortiGate. FortiClient profiles and FortiGate are now primarily used for Endpoint Compliance, and FortiClient Enterprise Management Server (EMS) is now used for FortiClient deployment and provisioning.
The FortiClient profile on FortiGate is for FortiClient features related to compliance, such as Antivirus, Web Filter, Vulnerability Scan, and Application Firewall. You may set the Non-Compliance Action setting to Block or Warn. FortiClient users can change their features locally to meet the FortiGate compliance criteria. You can also use FortiClient EMS to centrally provision endpoints. The EMS also includes support for additional features, such as VPN tunnels or other advanced options. For more information, see the FortiOS Handbook – Security Profiles.
