GlobalProtect Mobile Security Manager

As long as you have a corporate standard it is relatively easy to configure and can be easily trained on. It falls short when there are a variety of devices and scenarios to support. The “one offs” make it more difficult to support and upgrade.

If you're a large company with enough budget to maintain infrastructure and pay the expensive professional partners, only then should you consider this solution. If you have a lot of folks on the move and need to remotely deploy the application Horizon Mobile Manager could be a great help. Another typical scenario where it is appropriate is when you allow BYOD and need to create an application bubble that contains the apps, secure content locker etc. preventing employees to share it or open the content in other apps

  • Expensive to implement because you'll most definitely need a professional partner for implementation
  • As easy it is to use, it is complex to install. We have about 4 servers in our infrastructure only for this.
  • Tech support almost never gets back to you on the same day. Even for the critical issues.

Return on Investment

  • Since we have total control to do remote wipes on employee's own devices with HMM, it allows us to bring in BYOD policies which saves big bucks on company mobile purchases.
  • If you're not a large enough company, the implementation and maintenance cost might not be justified
  • The lackluster support can sometimes cause big issues go unfixed for significant duration which can potentially cause a problem
