FortiClient posture check for remote access - what is the minimum required for setup?

Hello, I am looking for clarification in whether I need to migrate to ZTNA for remote access to do a basic posture check? I am looking to see if we can block an incoming SSLVPN request from a user has their local antivirus not running or is not up-to-date? We are using Forticlient EMS.

Hi @1ryan1,

 

You don't necessarily need ZTNA. FortiClient free version supports host checks. Please refer to https://docs.fortinet.com/document/forticlient/7.0.0/new-features/651315/fortigate-powered-host-chec...

Awesome, didn't see this option. Are all Forticlient versions supported or just the free one? I tested this by disabling my AV and forcing the host check to look for it, and it still accepted the connection.

Disregard last comment, Win defender was also running. It works.
