  • GlobalProtect is OIT's "next generation" VPN client offering for remote UAF connectivity. If you currently use VPN, it is expected to replace Cisco AnyConnect.
  • Once you are operational with the new VPN, you can safely remove the Cisco AnyConnect client and use GlobalProtect as your primary VPN.
  • Additional information about the GlobalProtect VPN client can be found here. Additionally, some Mac users need to make a minor configuration change, which is further detailed in the link below.
