My overall experience with GlobalProtect is very good. It helps me to access the data which we have put in our private network.

Pros

With the helps of this software, we can easily access any resources we have put under this VPN. It helps organisation to secure their data, server by putting them behind VPN and only authorized user can access it by login into the system via this VPN.

Cons

Only problem which i face is the connectivity issue. Due to using this VPN, our internet speed goes down 10 times and sometimes the connectivity get broke because of this.

Overall its been really great experience, we can have one single portal( or redundant portal setup) and then we can have gateway deployed at multiple locations and this really helps us achieving great network results such as better latency and network throughput.

Pros

Global Protect is one the best remote working solution supporting multiple features such as you login via SSO, and it support multi factor authentication, we can use any application such as DUO, Google, Microsoft Authenticator apps. With Global it is always easy to access the internal enterprise resources that again in Secure manner, as traffic going back via Firewall. And firewall always first inspect the traffic and then will provide the results to the user.

Cons

It is kind of traditional solution, however I dont see it as the problem if the deployment is correct way then it works better than different Proxy/VPN solutions such as ZScaler, Cisco AnyConnect.

Our team has been using GlobalProtect for a long time now. We never faced any security or speed issues. GlobalProtect has been really useful for our organization. It works fine even if there is heavy traffic.

Pros

GlobalProtect is used by many organizations world wide. It's really a scure and relaible VPN solution there exists. The best thing is that it allows users to authenticate themselves using a token which is randomly generated. It allows allows us to add multiple gateways which can be controlled from one global portal. GlobalProtect is really simple and easy to use. When connected the speed is really faster compared to other VPN servics.

Cons

There are many times when I have to keep reconnecting to the GlobalProtect , as it disconnects automatically. Connecting to VPN sometimes take too long.

The software works pretty well, it doesn't get frozen, it provides the protection that it offers the interface is friendly and easy to install on the users' computers. we can manage access to applications and data, control the traffic on the devices, and create rules to identify malicious activities.

Pros

I like the protection it offers, full traffic visibility for remote users, implementation of existing security policy based on host information, as administrator we can monitor the security logs and we can find the devices that are generating malicious activities, we can also add the device in auto quarantine base on the traffic that generates. once we are sure the device is clean we can put it back in the network.

Cons

it completes all functionalities that I need as a user and as an administrator, from my side, I have nothing to complain about it.
