FortiClient Compliance- Security Posture Check

Hi guys,


Can anyone tell me if the Microsoft Windows Defender is considered as Third Party Antivirus or not ?


For the FortiClient compliance checks I have enabled "Third party AntiVirus on Windows" option and set it to Block if the end user's workstation is not compliant. I have disabled Windows Defender and have no other Antivirus installed on the machine however network access is not being blocked by the Fortigate as it is supposed to do when the user connects to SSL VPN.


The compliance is being done by the Fortigate firewall. The other Compliance features are working fine.


Anyone encountered the same issue? Any help will be appreciated.
