Access Issues

Quickly deploy secure access from any device to any app – anywhere, anytime

New secure data access challenges
Today’s modern workforce no longer accesses applications only in a data center. Cloud adoption has accelerated and workers demand 24x7 secure access to applications regardless of location.

Reduce data loss & leakage
With increasing malware sophistication, the costs of data breaches are now approaching $4M USD each. Increased security posture and compliance are critical to protect sensitive corporate data.

Boosting worker productivity
Make sure workers can quickly access applications securely while ensuring device security compliance is a tall order. PCS is a solution that enables secure connectivity to any application anywhere, but you also want the devices connecting to your network to have the latest OS, security software, and patches.

Secure remote access for every organization

  • Employee Remote Access – Access any corporate resource, in the cloud or data center, from any location (home, airport, hotel, café) using any web-enabled device. With SSL VPN, all data is encrypted and authenticated so data transfer is secure.
  • Browser-based Access – For some applications, clientless access is possible: no client software needs to be installed or managed. Organizations can limit users’ access to specific applications and ensure corporate security policies are met.  Additionally, this prevents infected devices from harming the network.
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Access – Provides remote users seamless access to virtual desktops with dynamic delivery of Citrix ICA or VMware View clients to simplify users’ experience. Multiple RDP connectivity options along with interoperability with VMware View Manager, Citrix XenDesktop, and Microsoft RD Web enables IT administrators to configure centralized remote access policies that blend VDI with other applications.
  • Integrated Remote and Mobile Access – Pulse Connect Secure provides for rapid, common onboarding of laptops, smartphones and tablets. Support for ActiveSync and on-demand VPN connectivity enables maximum device performance with proven scale.

Pulse Connect Secure enable secure remote and mobile access to services and applications from any device.

  • Simplifies network access administration with centralized web-based console, end-user self-provisioning, and integration with EMM policy management platforms.
  • Stateful compliance checking ensures that endpoint devices meet corporate security policy requirements before being granted network access. Remediates devices and quarantines users, when necessary.
  • Always-on VPN enables organizations to enforce security compliance and visibility on all traffic from endpoints even when they are not on-premises.
  • Mobile Device Management integration offers comprehensive endpoint visibility to keep enterprise data secure for increasingly mobile workforces.
  • Integration with strong authentication and Identity and Access Management (IAM) platforms ensures that existing corporate authentication methods can be leveraged easily.
  • Single Sign-On support enables rapid and seamless access to applications, streamlining users’ experiences and increasing productivity and security.
