Alternative for Checkpoint capsule

Hello, as security engineer i'm visiting many potential customers and some of them are Checkpoint oriented ones. The main obstacle to migrate to PaloAlto is in many cases - funcionality called Capsule - where employees can connect choosen service via simple mobile application without full vpn client connection.

I was wondering if we can do similar things with PaloAlto or if there are plans to add such functions to panos.

What do you think ?

Currently there is no option on the Palo Alto that is similar to Checkpoint's Capsule features. To add to this a small amount I believe that even though Capsule has the option to go directly into Email, Files, and such they don't actually eliminate the VPN in this scenario. The application still makes a connection back to your enviroment and starts a vpn like tunnel to get that information, the advantage is that the device itself never forms the tunnel.
