No. Shorthand A group is termed a FZ-group if ... A group $G$ is termed a FZ-group if ...
1 center has finite index its center is a subgroup of finite index in it. the center $Z(G)$ is a subgroup of finite index, i.e., $G/Z(G)$ is finite.
2 inner automorphism group is finite its inner automorphism group is a finite group. the group $\operatorname{Inn}(G)$ of inner automorphisms (conjugations by elements of $G$) is finite.
3 inner automorphism group and derived subgroup both finite both its inner automorphism group and its derived subgroup are finite groups. the subgroups $\operatorname{Inn}(G)$ and $[G,G]$ are both finite groups.
4 isoclinic to a finite group it is isoclinic to a finite group. there is a finite group $K$ such that $G$ and $K$ are isoclinic groups.

Metaproperties

Direct products

This group property is finite direct product-closed, viz the direct product of a finite collection of groups each having the property, also has the property
View other finite direct product-closed group properties

A direct product of finitely many FZ-groups is an FZ-group. This follows from the fact that the center is a direct product-preserved subgroup-defining function, that is, the center of a direct product of groups is the direct product of their centers.
