AppStream and Globalprotect

We use AppStream and Globalprotect for access to:

  • Productivity applications that require a Windows desktop, such as the Adobe suite
  • Certain line-of-business applications that have an installed client, such as Academy
  • Browser applications that do not have native 2FA or support Google SSO

As a general rule, AppStream is preferred for the first two and Globalprotect for the latter. There may be rare exceptions to this, such as where an application requires a VPN connection and a Windows desktop. Be aware of the cost implications of using AppStream and always check if Globalprotect will meet your needs.
