Release Highlights:

The GlobalProtect cloud service 1.2 release introduces the following improvements for mobile user gateway selection:

  • Mobile users now connect more reliably to a GlobalProtect cloud service gateway that is inside the country from which they are connecting. This gateway selection is automatic.
  • Mobile users can manually select a specific GlobalProtect cloud service gateway from the GlobalProtect app on their endpoint.
  • In a hybrid deployment with a mix of on-premise and GlobalProtect cloud service gateways, administrators can set priorities on the gateways to allow gateway preferences. You can also set source regions on the on-premise gateways, allowing users in that region to connect to that gateway and preventing users outside of that region from connecting to that gateway.

To get more details about these enhancements, see Manage Priorities for GlobalProtect Cloud Service and On-Premise Gateways in the GlobalProtect Cloud Service Getting Started Guide.

GlobalProtect cloud service 1.2 also includes the following additional enhancements in this release:

  • The Status area in Panorama (Panorama > Cloud Services > Status) provides additional details about service connections, remote networks, and mobile users.

Unit 42 Report - Ransomware: Unlocking the Lucrative Criminal Business Model
Ransomware, specifically cryptographic ransomware, has quickly become one of the greatest cyber threats facing organizations around the world. This criminal business model has proven to be highly effective in generating revenue for cyber criminals in addition to causing significant operational impact to affected organizations. It is largely victim agnostic, spanning across the globe and affecting all major industry verticals. Small organizations, large enterprises, individual home users – everyone is a potential target. Ransomware has existed in various forms for decades, but in the last several years criminals have perfected the key components of these attacks. This has led to an explosion of new malware families and has drawn new actors into participating in these lucrative schemes.
