Extending next-generation security to all users and networks
Your networks and users have moved far beyond the protections afforded by traditional network perimeter security. The distributed nature of your organization creates security policy inconsistencies and introduces operational burdens. GlobalProtect solves the problem by extending the protections afforded by our next-generation security platform to your remote networks and mobile users with two deployment options.
GlobalProtect cloud service: To extend consistent security policies to remote networks and mobile users in an operationally efficient manner, you can consume GlobalProtect cloud service, a cloud-based security infrastructure that is based on our entire suite of next-generation security features. Following a shared ownership model, the GlobalProtect cloud service infrastructure is managed by Palo Alto Networks while you manage the process of adding locations, users and security policy deployment through Panorama. GlobalProtect cloud service can be used in conjunction with the GlobalProtect subscription deployed on your existing next-generation firewalls, allowing your users to transparently switch between customer-owned gateways and GlobalProtect cloud service.
GlobalProtect subscription: To protect your mobile users, regardless of their location or device in use, GlobalProtect subscription can be deployed on the next-generation firewalls owned and managed by your organization. By deploying GlobalProtect across your network of next-generation firewalls, you can precisely utilize capacity where your business needs it, in the configuration that you want.
