FortiEDR experiences anyone

I know fortiedr is from the ensilo acquisition. Anyone have any recent experiences with FortiEDR ? and maybe some opinions on how it compares to other ones in the market ? We have fortigate routers and switches, but not sure we definitely need to have that "single panel" convenience, though it sounds nice. Obviously nothing catches everything, and we would prefer better lateral spread prevention, than protection of said endpoint (as in we could sacrifice a known corrupted endpoint, which maybe the fortisandbox might help with as well). that and we would only allow VPN connections if the client was running forticlient with protection, rather than letting any endpoint connect. It might be difficult to determine on login, whether the endpoint had EDR running outside of the fortinet security fabric mechanisms..

So we are considering Windows Defender ATP (endpoint), s1, fortiedr right now. There just isnt much information on fortiedr out there. S1 kind of requires MSP, and we're looking to keep it on-prem which is why we are looking at Defender for Endpoint and FortiEDR. Any opinions are welcome. Thanks

And I guess the next question is - does anyone have inside information as to whether fortiedr might just be rolled in to the advanced versions of forticlient ? Because there are now 3 premiuum forticlient versions (outside of the free vpn one). Woudlnt it make sense to have it rolled in to one ?

And finally, fortinet has started to either rename or re-release fortiedr with fortixdr. I imagine its the same product, just trying to capitalize on the xdr marketing is my guess.

But MS Defender ATP being rolled in to one sounds enticing as well. Currently working on a test of that as well, but tests only tell so much. Any opinions are more than welcome, and thanks.

Hi Team, 

 

Please see the following response. 

 

FortiEDR provides on-premise deployment options with minimum license purchase requirements, though there is still a requirement to have Fortinet Cloud Services enabled.  If there are additional questions, feel free to contact your Fortinet partner or local Fortinet sales team and they will be able to provide additional information.
