Managed mode concepts
This section introduces the following concepts related to administering FortiClient in managed mode:
- FortiGate and FortiClient Compliance profiles
- EMS and endpoint profiles
- Telemetry connection options
- Telemetry gateway IP lists
- EMS and automatic upgrade of FortiClient
In FortiOS, administrators configure a FortiClient Compliance Profile, and in EMS administrators configure an endpoint profile, and these profiles can be downloaded to FortiClient in managed mode. Unless referring specifically to a profile created by using FortiOS or EMS, this guide uses the term profile when referring to a FortiClient Compliance Profile or endpoint profile received by FortiClient.
