GlobalProtect for iOS connects to a GlobalProtect gateway on a Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall allowing mobile users to benefit from the protection of enterprise security. The app automatically adapts to the end-user’s location and connects the user to the optimal gateway in order to deliver the best performance for all users and their traffic, without requiring any effort from the user. This allows users to work safely and effectively at locations outside of the traditional office.

Before installing this app, please check with your IT department to ensure that your organization has enabled a GlobalProtect gateway subscription on the firewall.

There is nothing to say is rock solid..connects 100% of the time..never drops..also no noticeable issues with network speed like other vpn clients experience

Works just like the desktop version

No complaints gets the job done.

Forces itself on

Really intrusive auto-connect behavior that requires you to go 4 layers deep into system settings to disable it. Highly annoying. You can “Disconnect” within the app but it just turns itself right back on. Really really bad design.
