Customize the GlobalProtect Portal Login, Welcome, and Help Pages

GlobalProtect provides default login, welcome, and/or help pages. However, you can create your own custom pages with your corporate branding, acceptable use policies, and links to your internal resources.
You can alternatively disable browser access to the portal login page in order to prevent unauthorized attempts to authenticate to the GlobalProtect portal (configure the
Portal Login Page
Disable
option from
Network
GlobalProtect
Portals
<portal_config
General)
. With the portal login page disabled, you can instead use a software distribution tool, such as Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), to allow your users to download and install the GlobalProtect agent.
