Secure Access to Corporate Networks for Employees and Contractors – Anywhere, Anytime and From Any Device
Simple to Deploy, Simple to Use
Today’s businesses need anywhere, anytime connectivity to resources and applications. At the same time, workers demand the same seamless user experience both at home and on the go – whether at an airport, hotel, or café.
Single Client for Entire Pulse Portfolio
Pulse Secure provides a single, unified client for different Pulse Secure products:
Pulse Connect Secure (VPN)
Pulse Policy Secure (PPS)
Pulse Zero Trust Access (PZTA)
Pulse Workspace (PWS)
Breadth of OS Platform Support
Supports all major OS platforms including Windows, macOS, Linux, ChromeOS, iOS, and Android.
Endpoint Security Checks
Built-in Host Checking capabilities which validate the device posture against the set of defined corporate policies and allow access only if the device is compliant.
Simple end-user self-provisioning and on boarding options to enable connectivity from multiple devices (BYOD and Corporate-owned)
Single Client for Better Productivity
A Single Client Means Streamlined Processes, Reduced Management Overhead, and Best-in-Class Integration
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.
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.
FIPS 140-2 Compliant
Data channels use FIPS-certified cryptographic module.
SSO via SAML
User auth via Layer 3 tunnel to external identity provider.
Automated tunnel tear-down or re-establishment.
App-level VPN Tunnel
iOS mobile traffic selectively secured.
On-demand VPN for iOS
VPN connected automatically via predefined host.
Array of mechanisms, including OTP.
FQDN Split Tunneling
Dynamically routed traffic to inside and outside tunnel.
Change appearance of UI and input elements.
Pulse Client Advantages
A single client that provides remote and local access with a simple and easy user experience that’s the same across operating systems and the entire Pulse Secure product line.
Increased productivity. Reduced help desk calls. Better security profiles. All in one package.
