Prevent Breaches and Secure the Mobile Workforce
GlobalProtect extends the protection of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform to the members of your mobile workforce, no matter where they may go.
The world that you need to secure continues to expand as both users and applications shift to locations outside of the traditional network perimeter. Security teams face challenges with maintaining visibility into network traffic and enforcing security policies to stop threats. Traditional technologies used to protect mobile endpoints, such as host endpoint antivirus software and remote access VPN, are not capable of stopping the advanced techniques employed by today’s more sophisticated attacker.
GlobalProtect™ network security client for endpoints, from Palo Alto Networks®, enables organizations to protect the mobile workforce by extending the Next-Generation Security Platform to all users, regardless of location. It secures traffic by applying the platform’s capabilities to understand application use, associate the traffic with users and devices, and enforce security policies with next-generation technologies.
Extending the Platform Externally
GlobalProtect safeguards the mobile workforce by inspecting all traffic using the organization’s next-generation firewalls that are deployed as Internet gateways, whether at the perimeter, in the DMZ, or in the cloud. Laptops, smartphones and tablets with the GlobalProtect app automatically establish a secure SSL/IPsec VPN connection to the next-generation firewall with the best performance for a given location, thus providing the organization with full visibility of all network traffic, for applications, and across all ports and protocols. By eliminating the blind spots in mobile workforce traffic, the organization maintains a consistent view into applications.
