the new features in this release, refer to the GlobalProtect App 6.1 New Features
New GlobalProtect Feature
Advanced Internal Host Detection
You can now configure advanced internal host detection through
the portal to add an extra security layer during internal host detection
by the GlobalProtect app. Enabling advanced internal host detection
stops malicious actors from spoofing the reverse DNS server response
during the internal host detection and thereby prevents malicious
actors from accessing the enterprise network.
Proxy Auto Configuration (PAC) Deployment from GlobalProtect
End-user Notification about GlobalProtect Session Logout
You can now enable and customize end-user notifications about
expiry of GlobalProtect app sessions on the gateway. These
notifications inform the end users in advance when their app sessions
are about to expire due to inactivity or expiry of the login lifetime
and lets them know how much time is left before the app gets disconnected,
preventing unexpected and abrupt app logout.
Simplified and Seamless macOS GlobalProtect
App Deployment Using Jamf MDM Integration
You can now use Jamf Pro, one of the most
widely used Apple device management platforms, to deploy the GlobalProtect
app to macOS endpoints to support large-scale GlobalProtect app
deployments in on-premises and Prisma Access environments. Administrators
can also provide a seamless user experience for macOS end users
by deploying Jamf configuration profiles that can automatically
load system and network extensions, thus preventing the user from
having to respond to notifications on the GlobalProtect app.
