GlobalProtect Portal Overview

The GlobalProtect Portal provides the management functions for your GlobalProtect infrastructure. Every endpoint that participates in the GlobalProtect network receives configuration information from the portal, including information about available gateways as well as any client certificates that may be required to connect to the gateways. In addition, the portal controls the behavior and distribution of the GlobalProtect agent software to both Mac and Windows laptops.
The portal does not distribute the GlobalProtect app for use on mobile devices. To get the GlobalProtect app for mobile devices, end users must download it from the store for their device: App Store for iOS, Google Play for Android, Chrome Web Store for Chromebooks, or Microsoft Store for Windows 10 UWP. However, the agent configurations that get deployed to mobile app users does control the gateway(s) to which the mobile devices have access. For more details on supported versions, see What Client OS Versions are Supported with GlobalProtect?
In addition to distributing GlobalProtect client software, you can configure the GlobalProtect portal to provide secure remote access to common enterprise web applications that use HTML, HTML5, and Javascript technologies. Users have the advantage of secure access from SSL-enabled web browsers without installing GlobalProtect client software. This is useful when you need to enable partner or contractor access to applications, and to safely enable unmanaged assets, including personal devices. Refer to GlobalProtect Clientless VPN.
