Fortinet Fortigate managed FortiClient can be used as a VPN Client (IPSec and SSL), an AV client and a host vulnerability scanner. Forticlient is used as the corporate AV solution and for VPN remote access. It works on Windows and Mac but there's no Linux version. If your user wants remote access to their office then FortiClient would be a good solution.
Enabling Two-Factor Authentication(2FA) for your Fortinet Fortigate managed active directory increases security and ensures users only have access to the systems and resources they need access to. When you enable 2FA, your users enter their username and password (first factor) as usual, and they have to enter an authentication code (the second factor) which will be shared on their virtual or hardware 2FA solution to get access to Forticlient VPN.
The 2-factor authentication can be of two types depending on the VPN clients.
miniOrange accomplishes this by acting as a RADIUS server that accepts the username/password of the user entered as a RADIUS request and validates the user against the user store as Active Directory (AD). After the first level of authentication, miniOrange prompts the user with 2-factor authentication and either grants/revokes access based on the input by the user.
miniOrange provides 15+ 2FA/MFA authentication methods for Fortinet Fortigate: OTP over SMS-Email, Push Notification, Software Token, Google / Microsoft Authenticator etc. You can opt for any of the 2FA methods to secure your Fortinet Fortigate. To integrate 2FA, you can enable RADIUS authentication in Fortinet Fortigate and configure policies in miniOrange to enable or disable 2FA for users.
miniOrange provides user authentication from various external directories such as miniOrange Directory, Microsoft AD, Azure AD, AWS Cognito and many more.

Refer our guide to setup LDAPS on windows server.
1. Create User in miniOrange
2. Bulk Upload Users in miniOrange via Uploading CSV File.
3. Self User Registration
(The Active Directory Group Provisioning (Sync) setup is done. Now, whenever a user is created or modified in LDAP server and if the Assign Users to groups is enabled, then user group attribute from the LDAP server will be automatically synced and the user group will be assigned or changed accordingly in miniOrange.)
(You can follow these steps and use the login URL present in the Branding section.)
