Single Client for Better Productivity

A Single Client Means Streamlined Processes, Reduced Management Overhead, and Best-in-Class Integration

Location awareness

Connections are location-aware and capable of triggering connections based on user and device location.  Not all clients offer this extra feature.

Single sign-on (SSO) aware

Pulse Client supports multiple SSO protocols like SAML, Kerberos, Form Post, NTLM SSO, and others, streamlining connectivity and reducing the possibility of stolen credentials.

Smart connection list

The client supports fallback connection requests to a different server (from a list of configured servers) if the previous attempted server is down.  Most other clients don’t offer this capability.

Session migration

Users can roam between office to home and back – as well as between Pulse Connect Secure and Pulse Policy Secure without a disrupted connection, unlike other offerings which require multiple logins.

Multiple VPN tunnels

Pulse Client supports multiple VPN tunnels simultaneously from the same client.  This is perfect for Hybrid IT and multi-cloud:  users can access resources simultaneously with multiple tunnels. Other vendors require multiple logins using different clients.

Extensive feature support

Other features, like IPv6, embedded browser, Smartcard auth, credential providers, MFA inputs, and more, are supported by the Pulse Client, unlike other vendors.

"The two more important things is that we have increased our security posture and for the most part, there has been zero impact on our end users”
