FortiClient SSO Mobility agent

By using FortiClient Single-Signon (SSO) Mobility agent with FortiOS with FortiAuthenticator, polling accuracy is increased. This solution is sometimes called FSSO Mobility agent.

The FortiClient SSO Mobility agent is a feature of Fortinet Security Fabric and FortiClient Endpoint Security. The agent automatically provides user name and IP address information to the FortiAuthenticator unit for transparent authentication. IP address changes, such as those due to WiFi roaming, are automatically sent to the FortiAuthenticator. When the user logs off or otherwise disconnects from the network, the FortiAuthenticator unit is aware of this and deauthenticates the user.

The FortiClient SSO Mobility agent communicates with FortiAuthenticator and not FortiOS. As a result, the SSO Mobility Agent option must be enabled in FortiAuthenticator.
