Managing the GlobalProtect App Software
Select DeviceGlobalProtect Client (firewall only) to download and activate the GlobalProtect app software on the firewall that hosts the portal. Thereafter, endpoints that connect to the portal download the app software. In the agent configurations you specify on the portal, you define how and when the portal pushes software to endpoints. Your configuration determines whether upgrades occur automatically when the app connects, whether end users are prompted to upgrade, or whether upgrading is prohibited for all or a particular set of users. See Allow User to Upgrade GlobalProtect App for more details. For details on the options for distributing the GlobalProtect app software and for step-by-step instructions for deploying the software, refer to Deploy the GlobalProtect App Software in the GlobalProtect Administrator’s Guide.
For the initial download and installation of the GlobalProtect app, the user of the endpoint must be logged in with administrator rights. For subsequent upgrades, administrator rights are not required.
