The GlobalProtect app provides a simple way
to extend the enterprise security policies out to mobile endpoints.
As with other remote endpoints running the GlobalProtect app, the mobile
app provides secure access to your corporate network over an IPsec
or SSL VPN tunnel. The app automatically connects to the gateway
that is closest to the end user’s current location. In addition,
traffic to and from the endpoint is automatically subject to the
same security policy enforcement as other hosts on your corporate
network. The mobile app also collects information about the host
configuration and can use this information for enhanced HIP-based
security policy enforcement.
There 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
endpoints; or, you can install the app directly from the official
store for your endpoint:
