Introduction

This document provides comprehensive information on all of the features available in FortiNAC that are used to enforce network usage policies, monitor specific events, and automatically take actions. When FortiNAC recognizes an event, it takes the defined action, and logs both for tracking purposes.

Configurations using the Administration User Interface of individual FortiNAC components, such as groups and scheduled actions, are included. Components and configurations viewed/modified through the Administration UI and the last known state of those components are stored in the FortiNAC’s mysql database. Passwords are encrypted.

Device integration information is provided on the Fortinet Documentation Library.

The Requirements section defines the host requirements for the FortiNAC administrator. Refer to Dashboard topics to get started.

This documentation applies to the FortiNAC Server, FortiNAC Control Server, and FortiNAC Application Server appliances.

Note

Internet Access

It is recommended that FortiNAC has internet access to receive operating system and product updates. Internet access allows FortiNAC to stay up to date and secure.

For more information about updating the operating system, see Operating system.
