Set Equal Gateway Priorities for On-Premises and Prisma Access Gateways
To enable secure access for your mobile workforce
no matter where they are located, you can set equal priorities for
the on-premises GlobalProtect gateways and the Prisma Access gateways.
The GlobalProtect app uses Gateway Priority in a Multiple
Gateway Configuration to determine the preferred gateway.
can use this configuration if your mobile users are most often closer
to an on-premises gateway. When users change locations, the GlobalProtect
app chooses another gateway (either on-premises or Prisma Access
gateway) based on the highest priority and lowest response time.
following figure shows a sample configuration with two mobile users
in North America. You set the gateway priority to
the Prisma Access gateways and the on-premises gateways.
this example, User 1’s GlobalProtect app determines that the Prisma
Access gateway has a lower response time than the on-premises gateway,
and user 2’s GlobalProtect app determines that the on-premises gateway
has a lower response time. Since all gateways have the same priority,
User 1 connects to the Prisma Access gateway and User 2 connects
to the on-premises gateway, based on the lower response time.
