Fortify Your Network Security Posture with NAC

Use Pulse Policy Secure to Automate Network Visibility, Access Control and
Threat Response

Enterprises face increasing cybercrime activity and data breaches, which now cost an average $4M USD each.

Network Access Control (NAC) solutions provide organizations with continuous visibility, endpoint and IOT access control, and automated threat mitigation. Using NAC, they can  implement a “comply to connect” strategy that uses strong endpoint authentication, host checking, conditional access, guest management, IoT security, interoperability and automated threat response capabilities to fortify their security posture and to support compliance requisites.

Pulse delivers a full featured, Next-Gen NAC, plus:

  • An easy, flexible path to next generation NAC, starting with visibility by leveraging the Pulse Profiler and subsequently migrate to full enterprise-class NAC functionality while phasing in access enforcement, network coverage and core integrations.
  • “Comply to connect” policy enforcement and security orchestration with popular next-gen firewalls (NGFW), security information and event management solutions (SIEMs), switches, wireless controllers, enterprise mobility management (EMM) and endpoint security solutions.
  • Expedited NAC deployment for current Pulse VPN users by leveragingthe same device Client (agent and agentless), centralized management console, and policy framework, while gaining full intelligence on remote, on-premise and cloud user and endpoint activity.

What key selection criteria and implementation options should organizations consider and what capabilities should a next-gen NAC solution include?

Pulse Profiler

Pulse Profiler automatically identifies managed, unmanaged and IoT devices that are connecting to your network locally or remotely. It provides dynamic network device discovery, assessment and inventory, and includes an embedded, high-performance RADIUS server that speeds access processing and reduces deployment cost.

Pulse Policy Secure

This next-generation NAC solution provides endpoint visibility, easy usability, IoT security and compliance enforcement capabilities. PPS tackles the challenges of securing corporate networks which are being redefined by Hybrid IT, mobile devices and the Internet of Things (IoT).
