The ZTNA Edition of FortiClient provides the requirements for a remote worker to connect to the network with a minimum level of control. This edition enables both ZTNA and VPN encrypted tunnels, as well as URL filtering and USB device control. Central management via FortiClient EMS is included.
Zero trust network access (ZTNA) is an element of zero trust access that focuses on controlling access to applications. ZTNA extends the principles of zero trust access (ZTA) to verify users and devices before every application session. This confirms that they meet the organization's policy to access that application.
The EPP/APT Edition of FortiClient expands on the capabilities of the ZTNA Edition by adding AI-based next-generation antivirus (NGAV), endpoint quarantine, and application firewall, as well as support for cloud sandbox.
