FortiClient is a set of software tools that serve to ensure the security of the operating system. The complex includes antivirus, antispyware, VPN-client, firewall and anti-spam. We will tell you about each of the above mentioned means separately.

Anti-virus and anti-spyware components provide your computer with reliable protection against viruses, spyware, Trojans and Internet worms. FortiClient scans the system in real time, monitors new emails delivered to your inbox, analyzes traffic and the system registry. VPN client allows you to connect to corporate applications using advanced encryption algorithms. Firewall provides constant control of all incoming and outgoing connections, and anti-spam prevents the distribution of promotional emails when using e-mail clients.

There are no claims to the program interface. Graphic shell is made quite qualitatively and pleases the eye of the user. Each FortiClient Standard component has a separate section in the main window, where you can find the basic settings and description of the tool. The second important advantage of the programme is its low system resource consumption. These programs differ favorably from full-fledged antivirus programs. Here the reader will most likely have a question: "Can FortiClient replace an anti-virus program? Maybe, but still it is recommended to use both tools in parallel. This way, you will reduce the likelihood of system infection and data loss to almost zero. For all its merits, the program is completely free for non-commercial use. So it can be recommended to everyone.

It seems like this is a decent product. I like that it scans in real-time, versus having to manually trigger a run/scan. It seems to provide good protection against the main vulnerabilities: Trojan horses, viruses, and spyware. Additionally, it monitors email as well to ensure every email received is safe & secure. This is important given how often we are all sending/receiving emails.
