Palo Alto Networks GlobalProtect
The Palo Alto Networks GlobalProtect solution ties application-, user-, and content-based policies to roaming users through a persistent thin client that can be pre-installed or installed on demand. Similar to a VPN, remote traffic is sent over a secure tunnel. However, unlike typical VPN deployments, which direct traffic to a few geographically centralized gateways, the GlobalProtect client automatically connects to the nearest corporately-managed Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall deployed at a hub, branch or in a private cloud. This results in faster throughput, easier management, and better protection. Palo Alto Networks recently rolled out a two-tier MSSP program that includes in-depth technical training and accreditation for managing its security solutions.
