Create a VPN profile

The required profile settings vary for each device type and depend on the VPN connection type and authentication type that you select. You can use a variable in any profile setting that is a text field to reference a value instead of specifying the actual value.
An alternative to creating a VPN profile, you can choose to 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, see Integrating BlackBerry UEM with CylanceGATEWAY to create a ZTNA profile.
