    DA if your staff and students have laptops supplied, HAP is very good as is RDP tend to find that there is no best fit for just one solution in my experience.

    Congratulations on making the leap!

    Have you considered just using remote desktop to a dedicated server?
    All users can then access most of your usual network software as well as shared areas/printers the lot. You can use a 2 factor plugin if need be.
    RDP is generally lighter and more responsive than copying whole files up and down a VPN link. It also doesnt matter if they are using a virus riddled device.
    Im pretty sure you will require separate VPN licenses from fortinet above the one or two built in.
    RDP gateway is built in to server OS and is almost free + once its installed you never really need to do anything to keep it running, it just keeps working.

    I am able to copy and paste a file from my local desktop to the remote desktop, would a virus not be able to do the same?
