The GlobalProtect app provides a simple way
to extend the enterprise security policies out to mobile devices.
As with other remote hosts running the GlobalProtect agent, the
mobile app provides secure access to your corporate network over
an IPSec or SSL VPN tunnel. The app will automatically connect to
the gateway that is closest to the end user’s current location.
In addition, traffic to and from the mobile device is automatically
subject to the same security policy enforcement as other hosts on your
corporate network. Like the GlobalProtect agent, the app collects
information about the host configuration and can use this information
for enhanced HIP-based security policy enforcement.
are two primary methods for installing the GlobalProtect app: You
can deploy the app from your third-party MDM and transparently push
the app to your managed devices; or, you can install the app directly
from the official store for your device:
