The GlobalProtect app provides a simple way to extend
the enterprise security policies out to mobile endpoints. As with
other remote endpoints running the GlobalProtect app, the mobile
app provides secure access to your corporate network over an IPsec
or SSL VPN tunnel. The app connects to the gateway that is closest
to the end user’s current location. In addition, traffic to and
from the mobile endpoint is automatically subject to the same security
policy enforcement as other endpoints in your corporate network.
The app also collects information about the host configuration and
can use this information for enhanced HIP-based security policy
There are two primary methods for installing the GlobalProtect
app: Install the app directly from the app store on your endpoint
and Install the GlobalProtect Mobile App); or deploy the
app from a mobile device management system (such as AirWatch) and
transparently push the app to your managed endpoints.
