Overall Satisfaction with Palo Alto Networks GlobalProtect Mobile Security Manager

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
  • It is a bit expensive to utilize to its full extent with other Palo products.
  • The GUI is nice and is easy to train on.
The McAfee product really isn’t a great option. The configuration is a nightmare and requires a lot of time. The policy management has a high learning curve.
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.
