Create a VPN profile

You can use
CylanceGATEWAY
to create a zero trust network access (ZTNA) profile that is recognized by devices as a VPN provider.
CylanceGATEWAY
trusts nothing and no one by default. For more information on
CylanceGATEWAY
, see Integrating BlackBerry UEM with CylanceGATEWAY to create a ZTNA profile.
The required profile settings vary for each device type and depend on the VPN connection type and authentication type that you select.
Some devices may be unable to store the xAuth password. For more information, visit support.blackberry.com/community to read 30353.
  • If devices use certificate-based authentication for work VPN connections, create a CA certificate profile and assign it to user accounts, user groups, or device groups. To send client certificates to devices, create a user credential, SCEP, or shared certificate profile to associate with the VPN profile.
  • For
    iOS
    ,
    iPadOS
    ,
    macOS
    , and
    Samsung Knox
    devices that use a proxy server, create a proxy profile to associate with the VPN profile.
    (The proxy server for
    Windows 10
    devices is configured in the VPN profile.)
  • For
    Samsung Knox
    devices, add the appropriate VPN client app to the app list and assign it to user accounts, user groups, or device groups. The supported VPN client apps are
    Cisco AnyConnect
    and
    Juniper
