It is a new package and it is not yet available in "stable" repositories for Fedora 22 (or 23) but you can install it from "updates-testing" repository:

sudo dnf install NetworkManager-fortisslvpn --enablerepo=updates-testing

New packages (or updates) are available for certain time only in updates-testing to get users/testers enough time to test them.

Will this permanently enable the repo or only for this command? Is there any drawback enabling this repo?

It's only for this command. This repository contains "proposed" updates for Fedora. It is possible there will be a broken update but it should happen only rarely. Most of the updates will just make it to "regular" repository after 7 days (time is different based on Fedora release cycle and number of testers of that particular update) in updates-testing.

More information is available at Fedora Wiki: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Reposi...

If the update works well for you, go to https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/ , add a comment saying so, and giving it a karma point. That will get it to the regular repos quicker.
