Delivery Optimization Support for Windows

Software Support
: Starting with GlobalProtect™ app 6.0
OS Support
: Windows 10
To ensure that Microsoft delivery optimization and peer caching can identify that a device is connected to a VPN, the GlobalProtect virtual adapter name on Windows endpoints has been changed to include the keyword
secure
. This enables delivery optimization and peer caching to work properly for large number of Windows updates, upgrades, and application downloads and ensures that this traffic is not consuming large amounts of bandwidth and slowing down the updates when the end user is connected to the VPN.
On Windows endpoints, if you use
PANGP Virtual Ethernet Adapter
to identify the GlobalProtect adapter name in your script, update the GlobalProtect virtual adapter name to
PANGP Virtual Ethernet Adapter Secure
through System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) or Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (MECM).
