Software Defined Perimeter Access for Hybrid IT 

The Best Secure Access Approach is Evolutionary not Revolutionary

Next Generation Access Architecture for Protecting Application Infrastructure 

Digital transformation is here.  The migration of applications to the cloud coupled with anywhere access from a myriad of devices has increased the threat surface, and made enterprises more vulnerable to advanced attacks on the application infrastructure.

Traditional security perimeters have shifted and organizations must be able to extend dynamic, on-demand application access to users without compromising security or user experience.  By enabling secure “verified” user and device access to only authorized applications, Pulse Software Defined Perimeter helps customers reduce their exposure to advanced threats, while simplifying connectivity and improving experience.

  • The attack surface is reduced through per-application network segmentation and direct access to authorized applications.
  • Extensive multi-factor authentication and authorization ensures that users, their devices, and the applications they access are continuously verified.
  • Enterprises benefit from improved access responsiveness and application security.

Pulse Secure’s evolutionary approach to deploying Software Defined Perimeter helps customers to expand as needed, and accelerate their digital transformation while protecting their existing investments.

Pulse SDP

Pulse SDP is a Zero Trust secure access architecture for today’s modern application infrastructure.  It enables direct, secure access to individual applications and requires users and their devices to be verified before access is allowed. The result is an enhanced security profile, better device compliance, and an improved user experience while defending against modern security threats and lateral malware spread.

Pulse One (Controller)

Pulse One plays the role of an SDP Controller, providing centralized authentication and policy management.  Pulse One centrally controls policies and publishes them to the gateways. Pulse One is also responsible for centrally authenticating users and then forwarding them to the appropriate gateways based on the application or resource the user is trying to access.  

Pulse Access Suite Plus

Pulse Access Suite Plus delivers protected connectivity, operational intelligence, and threat response across mobile, network, and multi-cloud environments – providing superior user experience and single-pane-of-glass management. Secure Access management is simplified with centralized policy administration, a unified appliance platform, broad endpoint client coverage, and standards-based infrastructure and cloud interoperability.
