Worth knowing

GlobalProtect is a software that creates a secure connection (often called a tunnel) between an end user’s device and a corporate network. It is typically used by organizations who have employees who work remotely, or who need to connect to their corporate network from outside the office. GlobalProtect uses both IPsec and SSL to create the secure connection.

When using Palo Alto GlobalProtect, each client device first connects to the internet and then downloads the GlobalProtect app. The app authenticates the user against a directory service like LDAP/AD, RADIUS, or SAML. Once authenticated, the user’s device establishes an encrypted tunnel with a GlobalProtect gateway on the company firewall.

The gateway forwards traffic to the appropriate internal resources based on security policy settings. For example, if there is a rule that allows all traffic from internet-basedIP addresses to reach server A but only port 8080 traffic can reach server B, then those are the only types of traffic that would be allowed through the encrypted tunnel from each remote user’s device.

Palo Alto Networks firewalls can be configured as either globalprotect gateways or satellites. When operating in Gateway mode, PA-500 Series and PA-2000 Series firewalls support up 500 users while PAN-OS 6.* running on PA-3000 Series supports up 2,000 users simultaneously.

Satellite Mode: When you place one or more Palo Alto Networks next generation firewalls in Satellite mode and configure them with identical settings (except for IP address), they dynamically share Tunnel Status information so any new firewall added functions without needing reconfiguration of your security policies

If you’re traveling abroad and want to connect to your company network using GlobalProtect, you may be wondering if the software will work in other countries. The answer is yes – GlobalProtect can be used internationally, as long as you have an internet connection. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when using the software outside of the United States.

First, it’s important to remember thatGlobalProtect uses a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to create a secure connection between your device and your company network. This means that all of the data passing through this connection is encrypted, so it’s impossible for anyone to eavesdrop on your traffic. However, encryption can also cause problems with some websites and services that rely on unencrypted traffic – such as online banking or shopping. If you need to access these types of sites while abroad, you may need to disable GlobalProtect temporarily.

Another thing to keep in mind is that different countries have different laws regarding VPN usage. In some cases, VPNs may be completely banned (such as in China), while in others they may be heavily restricted (such as in Russia). Make sure you check the local laws before connecting to a VPN in another country. Traveling with a laptop or other device that has GlobalProtect installed? Don’t forget to set up a passcode or lock pattern – this will help protect your device if it’s lost or stolen while you’re away from home.
