About GlobalProtect Licenses

If you want to use GlobalProtect to provide a secure remote access or virtual private network (VPN) solution via single or multiple internal/external gateways, you do not need any GlobalProtect licenses. However, to use some of the more advanced features (such as HIP checks and associated content updates, support for the GlobalProtect mobile app, or IPv6 support) you must purchase an annual GlobalProtect Gateway license. This license must be installed on each firewall running a gateway(s) that:
  • Performs HIP checks
  • Supports the GlobalProtect app for mobile endpoints
  • Supports the GlobalProtect app for Linux endpoints
  • Provides IPv6 connections
  • Split tunnels traffic based on the destination domain, application process name, or HTTP/HTTPS video streaming application.
  • Supports identification of managed devices using the endpoint’s serial number on gateways
  • Enforces GlobalProtect connections with FQDN exclusions
For GlobalProtect Clientless VPN, you must also install a GlobalProtect Gateway license on the firewall that hosts the Clientless VPN from the GlobalProtect portal. You also need the
