FortiClient 6.2.5 – Next-Generation Protection

FortiClient security software with integrated endpoint protection provides automated next-generation threat protection. Also it ensures the visibility and control of your software and hardware inventory across the entire security fabric.

The application is a lightweight and easy to use. Identify and remediate vulnerable or compromised hosts across your attack surface. Furthermore, the automated behaviour based protection guards your device against unknown threats.

The anti-exploit technology protects your endpoint against advanced threats including zero-day attacks, which target application vulnerabilities that have yet to be discovered or patched.

The advanced technology provides an additional layer of protection by monitoring the host memory to detect and block various memory techniques including return-oriented programing (ROP), heap spraying, and others.

As a key piece of the Fortinet Security Fabric, FortiClient integrates endpoints into the fabric for early detection and prevention of advanced threats. Security events including zero-day malware, botnet detections, and vulnerabilities are reported in real-time.

The deep real-time visibility into the network allows administrators to investigate and remotely quarantine compromised endpoints. Endpoint protection is more than just antimalware protection, the endpoint compliance and vulnerability detection features enable simplified enforcement of enterprise.

As a next-generation endpoint protection solution, this software helps connect endpoints to FortiSandbox, which uses behaviour-based analysis to automatically analyze in real-time all files downloaded to FortiClient endpoints.

Millions of FortiClient and FortiSandbox users worldwide share information about known and unknown, malware with cloud-based FortiGuard.
