In EMS, administrators can configure an endpoint profile. Administrators then include the profile in an endpoint policy, which they apply to groups of endpoints. The profile defines the configuration for FortiClient software on endpoints. Administrators can also use the endpoint profile to install and upgrade FortiClient on endpoints. The profile consists of the following sections:
- Malware Protection
- Web Filter
- Vulnerability Scan
- System Settings
- XML Configuration
When the endpoint receives the configuration information in the endpoint profile as part of an endpoint policy, it automatically updates FortiClient settings. FortiClient settings are locked and read-only when EMS provides the configuration in a profile.
For information on configuring endpoint profiles using EMS, see the FortiClient EMS Administration Guide.
