Introduction

A cloud-based SaaS endpoint management service called FortiClient Cloud is available. This is a Fortinet-hosted EMS solution.

Once you have registered a FortiClient license contract for management by FortiClient Cloud to your FortinetOne account, FortinetOne creates a cloud-based EMS instance under the user account. You can execute EMS functions from the cloud-based EMS.

Requirements

The following items are required before you can initialize your FortiClient Cloud instance:

Requirement

Description

FortinetOne account

Create a FortinetOne account if you do not have one. Launching FortiClient Cloud requires a primary FortinetOne account. A primary FortinetOne account can invite other users to launch FortiClient Cloud.

Licensing

Purchase one of the following FortiClient license types from Fortinet:

  • Fabric Agent with Endpoint Protection
  • Sandbox Cloud

When registering the license contract, you must specify that the endpoints will be managed using FortiClient Cloud, as described in Deploying FortiClient Cloud.

Registering a Fabric Agent license for FortiClient Cloud management does not support all features supported for on-premise EMS. See Limitations of FortiClient Cloud for the list of supported features.
