As of June 15, 2022, IE 11 is getting deprecated by Microsoft Edge. Customers are concerned about the use of embedded web-view within GlobalProtect (it relies on IE 11 SDK) well beyond June 15, 2022.

 

Palo Alto Networks’ GlobalProtect team has tested GlobalProtect’s features that require embedded web-view in 5.1.X, 5.2.X, and 6.0.X release trains.

 

Customers are advised to review the testing matrix to understand the impact of Microsoft deprecating IE 11 on GlobalProtect’s embedded web-views.
