GlobalProtect Overview

Whether checking email from home or updating corporate documents from an airport, the majority of today's employees work outside the physical corporate boundaries. This workforce mobility increases productivity and flexibility while simultaneously introducing significant security risks. Every time users leave the building with their laptops or smart phones, they are bypassing the corporate firewall and associated policies that are designed to protect both the user and the network. GlobalProtect™ solves the security challenges introduced by roaming users by extending the same next-generation firewall-based policies that are enforced within the physical perimeter to all users, no matter where they are located.
