Standards-based VPN Connectivity
Secure site-to-site and remote user connectivity is a critical infrastructure component for nearly any organization. Every Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall platform allows organizations to easily communicate in a secure manner between sites using standards-based IPSec VPN connections while remote user communications are protected through a rich set of VPN features.
Secure site-to-site connectivity through IPSec VPN.
Standards-based IPSec VPN connectivity combined with application visibility and control enables protected communications between two or more Palo Alto Networks devices or another vendor's IPSec VPN device.
Large Scale VPN
Organizations with many branch offices or retail stores may need to deploy site-to-site VPN across a number of locations. Large Scale VPN provides automatic configuration of the critical VPN tunnel settings, making it easy for the local personnel at a branch office to deploy new firewalls. When a new firewall is brought online, it will use an available Internet connection to authenticate with a GlobalProtect Portal and pick up the latest VPN settings to maintain ongoing, secure communication.
Consistent Security Everywhere
GlobalProtect enables remote users to access the corporate network by automatically establishing either an SSL or IPSec-based VPN connection depending on location and configuration. The remote access connection is authenticated through one of several mechanisms (local DB, RADIUS, LDAP, Active Directory and Smartcards) and once the secure remote connection is established, users are protected by the same security policies protecting corporate users. GlobalProtect secures users on a range of platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS and Android.
