Empowers Organizations to Protect Their Data by Safely Enabling Mobile Devices

Santa Clara, Calif., September 15, 2014 - Palo Alto Networks (NYSE: PANW), the leader in enterprise security, today announced the latest version of its GlobalProtect Mobile Security Manager software. This version offers new capabilities that help organizations deliver protection for enterprise data that resides on mobile devices while respecting personal boundaries. These new capabilities extend an organizations' ability to control access to enterprise applications and data based on key policy criteria such as application, user, device, and device state.

Early enterprise adopters of the BYOD trend have relied on technologies like MDM, MAM, or EMM to address their device management needs, but these fall short in security measures. A new security approach is required - one that combines the necessary technologies needed to protect the device and corporate data from sophisticated mobile threats.

Palo Alto Networks GlobalProtect is the only mobile security offering to deliver this functionality, blending the necessary device management and network security technologies into a single integrated product to manage the device, protect the device, and control the data movement. Through the native integration of these three core capabilities, GlobalProtect enables organizations to seamlessly address their security needs and the privacy requirements of the user, while maintaining the productivity power of the native app experience.

This is made possible by the extensibility of the Palo Alto Networks enterprise security platform, which builds on a successful strategy of developing critical security technologies into a tightly integrated and automated system designed from the ground up to protect organizations' most valued assets.


  • "We're using the Palo Alto Networks enterprise security platform to protect our business, and we're pleased with the ability to extend this protection to mobile devices with GlobalProtect. We looked at the options on the market for mobile security and felt that GlobalProtect provided what we needed the most - a way to make sure that the devices were safe for use in our corporate environment." - Blake Wofford, Senior Security Engineer, Exeter Finance
  • "GlobalProtect lets our customers manage the often conflicting goals of enabling the use of mobile devices, keeping the network protected from malware and unauthorized data access, and respecting the users' privacy. Most important, GlobalProtect allows enterprises to retain the productivity benefits of the native mobile app experience while extending our Next-Generation Firewall and global threat intelligence capabilities from the network core to the endpoint device." - Lee Klarich, Senior Vice-President of product management, Palo Alto Networks
