Forticlient EMS

Hi All,
 
I will implement Forticlient EMS for advanced control for installed forticlient at endpoint.
Existing Fortigate is using FOS.5.4.X with FSSO and web filter/app control based on group access
 
The question is, is it possible if the endpoint connected to corporate network (on-net / under fortigate) so the FCT web-filter and application control is disabled automatically? Otherwise if endpoint is out of corporate network, web-filter and application control is active.
 
Its just to preventing a double of blocking, from FCT and FGT when the endpoint is on-net or connect on corporate network, and do violation like access to blocked website.
 
kindly give me the clue, maybe it be done with XML config rev. or.... 
 
thanks
Samuel Redjono

    Hi
     
    You can configure this behaviour under profile --> system settings --> endpoint control.

    I know you can turn off the Web Filter when on-net, but haven't found a setting for Application Control (EMS 1.2.1).  For the Web Filter, configure your on-net subnets in the EMS profile section "System Settings".  Then uncheck "Client Web Filtering When On-net".

    You might try adding this to the XML under the firewall section, then evaluate:
            <disable_when_managed>1</disable_when_managed>
     
    If it were me, I'd want to offload as much off the FortiGate as possible and I would run this on the endpoint all the time.
    I'm sure you have good reasons.

    We're going to block bad websites at the Fortigate for all users whether or not they have FortiClient.  As that work is already necessary at the firewall, we can give our users a little more CPU for their work.  FortiClient has a very heavy impact on PCs so not desirable to do anything more than absolutely necessary.  Security updates and software installs take 2 - 3 times longer with FortiClient than Windows Defender, e.g., an extra 90 minutes to install Autodesk Inventor!  Painful.
     
    But I agree, it depends on one's local environment and needs.
