Forticlient block Exe Files

Dear Forum.


I have a Forticlient and a Forticlient EMS, how can I prevent colleagues from downloading .exe files with this environment? We don't want colleagues to be able to download .exe files in their home office as we prevent this on the office network.

@HUVA,
you can use Fortigate where your users are connecting to block exe files.

 

On sslvpn firewall policy, use File Filter security profile to block specific file types 

 

File filter | FortiGate / FortiOS 7.4.0 (fortinet.com)

We have enabled split tunneling on the SSL VPN policy, which means we are unable to intercept traffic that goes directly through the internet. As a result, we cannot activate the file filter on the SSL VPN policies. Is there any other option availbe or not?
