Pulse Secure Accelerates Enterprise Means to Achieve Zero Trust Security for Hybrid IT


October 22, 2019



Introduces New Secure Access Management and Threat Mitigation Features within Its Zero Trust Network Access Platform

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pulse Secure, the leading provider of software defined Secure Access solutions, today announced that it has introduced new Secure Access management and threat mitigation capabilities within its Zero Trust Network Access platform. Through these enhancements, Pulse Secure enables enterprise and service provider organizations to progress Zero Trust security and mitigate hybrid IT risks while simplifying access to multi-cloud and data center resources.

“The advantages that vendors like Pulse Secure provide are unified visibility and control, broad endpoint and IoT security coverage, consistent policy enforcement and faster mean time to response to access issues. Those advantages result in an improved security posture and reduced attack surface,” said Paula Musich, research director of security and risk management at Enterprise Management Associates. “At the same time, consolidating multiple tools into a Secure Access platform reduces cost of ownership and operational overhead.”

Pulse Secure’s Zero Trust Network Access platform allows organizations to centrally manage policy and automate secure access to applications, data and services that are delivered on-premise or in private and public cloud environments. The company continues to incorporate open standards and proprietary means to extend platform interoperability and automation that provide customers greater operational oversight, policy management and threat response economies.

Management
Many enterprises supplement conventional desktop and mobile remote access to hybrid IT applications and resources utilizing Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. Having to manage multiple secure access mechanisms often introduces user experience issues, as well as provisioning delays. Pulse Secure has enhanced its VDI integration with RDS (Remote Desktop Services) Broker to simplify user experience and management support for Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop, VMware Workspace ONE and Microsoft RDP.  Additional management enhancements include:

Threat Mitigation
Organizations are seeking means to improve mobile workforce user experience, while assuring data protection measures are always active and audit-ready in order to support numerous internal and regulatory compliance specification. Pulse Secure has enhanced its popular Pulse VPN Lockdown mode feature that prevents users from modifying VPN Client settings or disconnecting from gateways. Ensuring always-on and protected connections with rich user authentication and device security posture enforcement significantly reduces endpoint and access security threats. Additional threat mitigation enhancements include:

“Our customers have come to expect our solutions to be highly interoperable to address the broadest range of secure access needs, reduce operating costs and enable expedited threat response,” said Prakash Mana, vice president of product management. “With these platform advancements, our customers can further leverage their IT investments and gain greater access visibility, security, compliance and productivity.”

Pulse Secure’s Zero Trust Network Access platform is a foundational component of the Pulse Access Suites. The Suites provide remote, mobile, cloud, network and application security with comprehensive VPN, Mobile Device Management (MDM), Single Sign-on (SSO), endpoint and IOT device security, Network Access Control (NAC) and virtual Application Delivery Controller (ADC) functionality. Pulse SDP is a Suite add-on which activates Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) components within existing Pulse solutions to provide direct device-to-application trusted connectivity only after successful user, device and security state verification. This approach extends the company’s foundation of Zero Trust access for hybrid IT with enhanced usability, deployment flexibility, automated provisioning and resource optimization.
