Editors' Review

+

FortiClient is a comprehensive package that includes powerful virus defenses and fully-customizable parental controls for your PC. With this program in place, you won't have to worry about what your kids are accessing or what damaging programs your computer may be exposed to.

Pros

Scheduled scans: This app offers the option of scheduling weekly virus scans. You can also run a scan manually at any time, so if you're very concerned about possibly malicious files, you can quickly find and remove them.

Parental controls: The parental controls included in this app provide you with a lot of flexibility for the type of monitoring and regulation you want to do. There is a list of Web site categories that you can go through to select which ones you want to allow access to. In addition to blocking certain types of sites, you can also choose to receive a warning when someone visits a certain category of site; or you can just set the app to monitor activity on any given category.

Cons

Long installation: FortiClient completes an initial virus scan before installation, which is an important security step, but it also makes the installation process significantly longer than you might expect. The app also got stuck for a few minutes in the initial scan during testing, but it eventually got going again and completed the process with no further interruptions.

Bottom Line

FortiClient is a comprehensive anti-virus program that also offers versatile parental controls. It's free, which makes it an even more appealing option, and even though the installation process took a while, it doesn't have to be too much of an inconvenience, as long as you know it's coming and can plan for it.
