Application Firewall

Application Firewall

FortiClient can recognize the traffic generated by a large number of applications. You can create rules to block or allow this traffic per category, or application.

Enable/disable Application Firewall

The administrator enables the application firewall feature by using a FortiClient profile. The FortiClient profile includes the application firewall configuration.

The FortiClient Endpoint Control feature enables the site administrator to distribute an Application Control sensor from FortiGate/EMS.

On the FortiGate, the process is as follows:

l Create an Application Sensor and Application Filter on the FortiGate, l Add the Application Sensor to the FortiClient Profile on the FortiGate.

On EMS, the application firewall is part of the endpoint profile.

For more information on configuring application control security profiles, see the FortiOS Handbook -The Complete Guide to FortiOS available in the Fortinet Document Library.
