Deploy the GlobalProtect Client Software

In order to connect to GlobalProtect, an end host must be running GlobalProtect client software. The software deployment method depends on the type of client as follows:
  • Mac OS and Microsoft Windows hosts—Require the GlobalProtect agent software, which is distributed by the GlobalProtect portal. To enable the software for distribution, you must download the version you want the hosts in your network to use to the firewall hosting your GlobalProtect portal and then activate the software for download. For instructions on how to download and activate the agent software on the firewall, see Deploy the GlobalProtect Agent Software.
  • iOS and Android devices—Require the GlobalProtect app. As with other mobile device apps, the end user must download the GlobalProtect app either from the Apple AppStore (iOS devices) or from Google Play (Android devices). For instructions on how to download and test the GlobalProtect app installation, see Download and Install the GlobalProtect Mobile App.
  • Chromebooks—Require the GlobalProtect app for Chrome OS. Similar to the download process for mobile device apps, the end user can download the GlobalProtect app from the Chrome Web Store. You can also deploy the app to a managed Chromebook using the Chromebook Management Console. For instructions on how to download and test the GlobalProtect app installation, Download and Install the GlobalProtect App for Chrome OS.
