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
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.
—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.
—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.
As an alternative to deploying GlobalProtect client software,
you can configure the GlobalProtect portal to provide secure remote
access to common enterprise web applications that use HTML, HTML5, and
from SSL-enabled web browsers without installing GlobalProtect client
software. Refer to GlobalProtect
