Introduction

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

You can execute EMS functions from the cloud-based EMS. You must complete the following steps to create a cloud-based EMS instance under your FortinetOne user account:

  1. Register a FortinetOne premium subscription to your FortinetOne account.
  2. Register a FortiClient license contract for management by FortiClient Cloud to your FortinetOne account.
Caution

You must register the FortinetOne premium subscription before you can register FortiClient endpoint licenses. See Deploying FortiClient Cloud.

If you attempt to register the endpoint license before the FortinetOne premium subscription, you will not be able to deploy FortiClient Cloud from this FortinetOne account.

Requirements

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

Requirement

Description

FortinetOne account with premium subscription

Create a FortinetOne account if you do not have one and register a FortinetOne premium subscription to this account. Launching FortiClient Cloud requires a primary FortinetOne account with a premium subscription. A primary FortinetOne account with a premium subscription can invite other users to launch FortiClient Cloud. Each FortinetOne account that will access FortiClient Cloud must be registered with its own FortinetOne premium subscription. You must register the FortinetOne premium subscription before registering any endpoint licensing; otherwise, you cannot deploy FortiClient Cloud. See Deploying FortiClient Cloud.

Licensing

A license for each endpoint that will be managed using FortiClient Cloud. 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.

Internet access

You must have Internet access to create a FortiClient Cloud instance.

Browser

Device with a browser to access FortiClient Cloud.

Note

FortiClient Cloud only supports FortiClient 6.2.1 and later versions.
