GlobalProtect Cloud Service

To simplify the process of extending the same best-in-breed security to your remote network locations and your mobile workforce without having to build out your own global security infrastructure, Palo Alto Networks® introduces the GlobalProtect cloud service. You enable this service using the Cloud Services plugin on Panorama.
GlobalProtect cloud service—A cloud-based security infrastructure service that is designed to minimize the operational challenges associated with protecting your remote network locations and mobile users. With this service, Palo Alto Networks deploys and operates the security infrastructure you need globally, so that you can push consistent next-generation security out to your remote locations and users. The GlobalProtect cloud service supports the following capabilities:
  • Remote Networks—You can deploy the service to secure your remote network locations.
  • Mobile Users—You can deploy GlobalProtect cloud service to protect your mobile users with consistent next-generation security policies.
  • Service Connections—You can connect the GlobalProtect cloud service to up to 100 of your HQ or data center locations to enable users to access resources at your corporate sites and/or to enable access to your on-premise authentication service.
The GlobalProtect cloud service infrastructure that is provisioned to secure your remote networks and mobile users forwards all logs to the cloud-based Cortex Data Lake (formerly Logging Service), once configured. You can view these logs from Panorama.
