Upgrade to Latest PittNet VPN (GlobalProtect) Client

Thursday, November 3, 2022 - 11:06


Pitt Information Technology is writing to ask departments who use PittNet VPN (GlobalProtect) on their devices to upgrade those devices to the latest version of GlobalProtect (version 6.1). The new GlobalProtect client provides an improved user interface and enhances performance by addressing several previously reported bugs and vulnerabilities.   

If your department participates in the University’s Enterprise Device Management (EDM) program, GlobalProtect version 6.1 is now available for department IT staff to deploy on University-owned devices.

If your department does not participate in the EDM program, you can obtain GlobalProtect version 6.1 via the Software Download Service (software.pitt.edu).

Please contact the Technology Help Desk at +1-412-624-HELP (4357) if you have any questions regarding this announcement.
