Global Protect Hip check doubt

L4 Transporter


We are implementing HIP for our company, the case is that we already have several HIP objects and profiles working properly.

My question is, if we have identified a machine that does not pass the hip check as we want, is it possible that the vpn is cut? or we can only limit access through security policies?

Depends on how you have things configured. GlobalProtect by itself will never sever a connection simply because a HIP profile isn't identified properly; any performance impact would be due to how you have your rulebase configured to behave when the profile is/isn't matched. 

Personally we have some profiles that, when matched, will restrict all communication from/to the client via a matching security rulebase entry that's then identified by a script calling the API that will in turn disconnect the client. GlobalProtect and the firewall by itself however doesn't have the capability to disconnect a client when a profile is matched.
