FortiClient sends quarantined file information to EMS. If the EMS administrator whitelists the file (in the case of a false positive), EMS sends the whitelist information to FortiClient. After FortiClient receives the whitelist information, it releases the file from quarantine. See the FortiClient EMS Administration Guide for details.
