Forticlient endpoint/EMS build compatible with the Intel release of macOS Big Sur?

Is there any news on a forthcoming Forticlient endpoint or EMS build that's compatible for Intel-based macOS Big Sur?
 
Many thanks,
 
Martyn

Joy; Big Sur is now shipping, users have begun updating, and there's no compatible Forticlient.  Not sure if Fortinet realizes this, but a bunch of people have begun working remotely these days.  Having a working Forticlient for a reasonably common platform, where the latest OS has been available as a preview since June, might have been a good idea...

From last Update with MacOS (Intelbased) and Problems i know a workaround.
And yes, this works with BigSur, too.
 
1. uninstall Forticlient.
2. reboot
3. now, you can find fragmented files of Forticlient in /Library/StageExtensions Folder. You have to delete them. But this did not work without administration access in terminal window. So, open Terminal Window and paste:
sudo kextcache --clear-staging

After this, enter your Computer Password (administration rights need)
4. reboot
5. now install old Forticlient Version: FortiClient_5.6.1.723_macosx.dmg
6. reboot
7. now you can install newer Forticlient Version: FortiClient_6.0.9.162_macosx.dmg
8. reboot
 
After that you can config all SSL VPN Tunnel and IPsec Tunnel,
they worked as well as before Update to MacOS big sur.
Tested on 4 different MACs. Works fine.
