What's new in FortiNAC 9.4

New features
User Group Support with FortiAuthenticator RADIUS Integrations (715957, 713515)

Version 9.4.0 has made it easier to use FortiAuthenticator with FortiNAC for RADIUS integrations. Administrators will no longer be forced to change their FortiAuthenticator configuration when connecting to FortiNAC. New enhancements allow FortiNAC to receive user groups from FortiAuthenticator during the RADIUS authentication process.

See information in the Administration Guide: https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortinac/9.4.0/administration-guide/938271/proxy

SMS Gateway (586499)

FortiNAC has the ability to send SMS messages to administrators, guests or users. Previous versions of FortiNAC only supported the Mail to SMS method; now, FortiNAC adds support for API/HTTPS-based SMS gateway integration. FortiNAC 9.4.0 has built-in integration with cloud-based SMS providers such as Twilio, and LDAP group mapping for sponsors.

In the GUI, see: Network > Service Connectors > Email/SMS

See information in the Administration Guide: https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortinac/9.4.0/administration-guide/19358/email-sms

AV agent monitoring (759481)

Previous versions of FortiNAC only checked for Antivirus compliance within the Windows Defender AV product. v9.4.0 adds an option to choose "Security-Center" in the Windows AV category for up-to-date virus definitions, providing compliant protection for those Windows running end points.

Kerberos Support (699487)

v9.4.0 adds Kerberos support for admin and for user authentication on FortiNAC-CA, as well as admin authentication on FNAC-M.

Enhancements
RADIUS Logging and Dashboard (744581, 751403)

Version 9.4.0 has made it easier to authenticate large numbers of users with 802.1x. With concise information on the dashboard to see pass/fails of 802.1x/MAB authentication, v9.4.0 gives at-a-glance insight. Importantly, logs of failed authentications can be exported.

In the GUI, see: Network > RADIUS > Activity
