FortiClient has finally launched their first free version of antivirus software. It has received alot of attention in the media as well as on blogs. The FortiClient Endpoint Security Suit is targeted at Home users and is expected to compete against the other free anti virus software available in the market. A detail list can be found here for Free AntiVirus softwares. Now coming back to FortiClient and the special features of this free version as per their own site:
FortiClient™ standard edition offers one of the most comprehensive security suites for your PC available – including a full range of Fortinet threat protections for PCs and laptops, even when used on insecure public networks. This free download provides SSL and IPSec VPN, a personal firewall, antivirus/antispyware scanning, Intrusion Prevention and web filtering. FortiGate™ users complete their network security framework with Endpoint Control, Application Detection and WAN Optimization. Automatic updates from the FortiGuard™ subscription service ensure protection against the latest threats.
The best thing about the software is that it is just 11 MB and hence very easy to download and install. However, its first update takes a bit longer time then expected since it downloads most of the security updates later. So in case you don’t update it, you will end up having an anti virus system with obsolete definitions.
