Deploy the GlobalProtect Mobile App Using AirWatch

You can deploy the GlobalProtect app to managed endpoints that are enrolled with AirWatch. Endpoints running iOS or Android must download the AirWatch agent to enroll with the AirWatch MDM. Windows 10 endpoints do not require the AirWatch agent but require you to configure enrollment on the endpoint. After you deploy the app, configure and deploy a VPN profile to set up the GlobalProtect app for end users automatically.
