FSSO Local vs "Collector and Agent"

SW INFO: -Fortigate VM Eval 6.2.3

 

I just tried both method of FSSO which is Local and  "Collector and Agent".

Since both can do

-point to multiple AD

-filter to certain groups only

 

QUESTIONS: 1. what  "Collector and Agent" can do which Local FSSO can't do

2. in what situation Local is enough because Local doesn't have to install any software

Hello,

 

What Collector Agent can do ie. is:

polls: 672, 673, 680, 4768, 4769, 4776, 4624 Event IDs unlike polling from FortiGate limited to 4768, 4769.

IP ignore list Workstation check

RDP logon override

Extensive logging capability for troubleshooting

Scalability - can suit very large environments with DCs around the globe

Various methods of getting logon information

+ Collector Agent does not use FortiGate's hw resources

 

to name few advantages over polling directly from FortiGate.

 

Local might be good enough for a smaller office with modest AD environment.

 

Best Regards,

Alivo
