VPN – Palo Alto GlobalProtect

GlobalProtect is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) software. A VPN is required to securely connect to the Texas Southern University network services from off campus locations (i.e. Network file shares, non-Web applications).

The Palo Alto GlobalProtect Solution provides a secure network connectivity experience that empowers employees to work from anywhere, on laptops and mobile devices regardless of location.

Mobile Device Support
With the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) phenomenon, IT is required to support end-user productivity by enabling the use of personal mobile devices for remote access to the university network. Palo Alto GlobalProtect can be deployed on any mobile device. Highly secure remote access eliminates unapproved applications and users from accessing confidential business resources, further reducing malware intrusion risks and bandwidth costs for remote access.

Highly Secure Network Access
Palo Alto GlobalProtect is a unified agent that provides superior connectivity features, allowing IT to deliver multiple security services to help enable and protect the university. It provides the visibility and the control to identify who and what is accessing the TSU Network before, during, and after a security threat.

Web Security
Combining web security with VPN access, IT can provide comprehensive secure mobility to all end-users, which is vital for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) deployments. IT will be better equipped to defend the network against web malware and to control and secure web usage on mobile devices.
