Global Protect Client 5.0 for Windows and Mac

I'm looking at the release notes for the Global Protect client for Windows and Macs, now at 5.0.1


Am I missing something ?

What is the reason for the 5.0 client?

I don't see that there are any new features, or changes in behavior.


Or is it simply that 4.1 is at the end of maint ?

Hi @gefuchs ,


GlobalProtect app 4.1 is renamed GlobalProtect Legacy and is superseded by GlobalProtect app 5.0.

GlobalProtect app 5.0 introduces changes to MDM and client certificate deployment. See the GlobalProtect App New Features Guide for details. 


Cheers !
