Secure mobile workforces
The modern workforce is more mobile than ever, accessing the network from any place on any device, at any time. Endpoint antivirus and VPN technologies aren’t enough to stop advanced threats. By extending next-generation firewall capabilities through the GlobalProtect subscription, you can gain greater visibility into all traffic, users, devices, and applications. With GlobalProtect, organisations can extend consistent security policies to all users, while eliminating remote access blindspots and strengthening security.
GlobalProtect supports all existing PAN-OS authentication methods and provides the NGFW with a user-to-IP-address mapping for User-ID to help ensure secure access control for all mobile users. To make strong authentication even easier to use and deploy, you have access to the following features:
- GlobalProtect uses RADIUS and SAML integrations to support a range of third-party MFA methods, including one-time password tokens, certificates, and smart cards
- After authentication, you can use an encrypted cookie for access to a portal or gateway for the lifetime of that cookie, ensuring that protection is always present and transparent for an improved user experience.
Simplified certificate enrollment support
- GlobalProtect can automate the interaction with an enterprise PKI for managing, issues, and distributing certificates.
