Our company uses [Palo Alto Networks] GlobalProtect Mobile Security [Manager] to manage the large number of mobile phones and devices we have around the globe in one place with one common piece of software. This is needed especially now more than ever with almost all of our 5k+ employees located in remote work from home scenarios.
  • Complete control and configuration of iOS devices across our network.
  • Great username options in the latest version to help keep our devices organized and easy to manage.
  • Easy to enroll devices to connect to the VPN.
  • With all of it's unique features it does take some time to get folks up to speed in regards to supporting/managing the software.
  • Doesn't always play nice with non Palo Alto software.
With our work force most remotely for the unforeseeable future this has been an extremely useful tool to manage all our remote VPN access and iOS devices in one place. Easy to install and our users have very little issues getting connected and staying connected. Certificates can be a little tricky sometimes but it's rarely an issue.

We are currently using this across the organization as our primary remote access tool for information workers. It was our replacement for Ciscos VPN solution was which was becoming burdensome to support as well as more difficult to manage with certificates. With a large push for remote work at our organization we needed a more seamless solution overall.
  • The ease of use through the panorama console is a big plus.
  • Users have reported back to us that they have had less issues getting connected.
  • Less latency in the connections in general.
  • It has created another area for us to manage some of the internet traffic for our users. Sites being open on-site and not on remote access or vice versa.
  • In general, the certificates are easier to handle than while on Cisco solution, it is still a pain to get the remote device a cert in place if it has "broken."
  • We would like to lock in the ability of which gateway we use to connect to the network. While it's not been an issue for us we have seen some oddness when using a different gateway than the preferred one.
I would highly recommend it as it surpassed our previous tool in almost all scenarios. The only reason why I may not suggest it is if you do not already have Palo Alto networks tools in place. I am unsure how the management of the system would be without the firewalls or networking devices in place.

GlobalProtect addresses both desktop and mobile device security. We use it to permit access to company resources along with being able to manage the devices easily.
  • A single pane of glass in the Palo Alto ecosystem
  • A nice policy-based enforcement GUI that is easily managed
  • Many authentication configuration options supported.
  • Good technical support options with email and phone based.
  • It lags a bit on new features
  • It is best used with an entire Palo Alto environment
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.

It was used by the whole organization. It provided secure access to the company network.
  • Easy to configure.
  • Authentication rules can be made as strict as required to satisfy stringent audits.
  • Easy for end users.
  • I thought it did all things required very well.
It is well suited for both small and large organizations. It is very configurable so it can grow with your organization's needs.
