FortiClient now features VPN, ZTNA, endpoint protection (EPP), EDR, DEM, network access control (NAC), and SASE support, effectively reducing the need for multiple agents which complicate many distributed environments, Fortinet stated.

An upgrade to the AI-powered Inline Malware Prevention Service includes new features such as real-time anti-phishing and an accelerated AI pre-filter.

The new features include the ability to learn and detect network configurations, events, and alerts, and provides advanced threat visualization, according to the company. It also introduces a Security Automation Subscription that offers features such as premium reports, event handlers, and incident response playbooks, the company stated.

Other improved Security Fabric AI enhancements improve threat analysis and response and streamline network and security operations by tying the Fortinet Advisor (FortiAI) system into the vendor’s core data lake. is aimed at helping security operations teams make more informed decisions, respond to threats faster, and simplify routine and complex tasks. The AI-based FortiAI assistant is available as part of Fortinet’s FortiSIEM security information and event management platform and FortiSOAR security orchestration, automation, and response product.
