Pulse Policy Secure 5.2 NAC Solution - 2015 Govies Government Security Awards Winner

As a fairly new company, we can’t help but grin from ear-to-ear as our products and people continue to be recognized as industry award recipients. This is certainly true today, after receiving notice that our Pulse Policy Secure version 5.2 was awarded a 2015 Govies Award in the Access Control Software/Controllers category. The 2015 Govies Government Security Awards honor outstanding government security products in a variety of categories, and just a great recognition for our company.

Enough about us and why we’re so thrilled, and onto the reason for the win: Pulse Policy Secure 5.2. Pulse Policy Secure 5.2 was recently released in March 2015, and has already a received fanfare from customers that are seeking market leading network and application access control (NAC) solution. As we continue to deliver innovative products along with use of ease principles in our products and solutions, Pulse Policy Secure ensures only authorized and secured users and devices have access to an Enterprise network, protecting the network, core assets, applications, data and more.

Pulse Policy Secure delivers simple, secure network and application access control with a standards-based, context-aware solution that provides access control based on user identity, device type, integrity, and location. Pulse Policy Secure supports phased deployment and can scale to support global distributed enterprises and service providers. The Pulse Policy Secure leverages additional network components to ensure secure context aware network and application access control, address specific use cases, and centralize network policy management. It integrates with the intrusion prevention system (IPS) capabilities of the SRX Series gateways for both data center and branch, as well as the standalone Juniper Networks IDP Series Intrusion Detection and Prevention Appliances, to deliver broad application traffic visibility—mitigating insider threats by isolating them to the user or device level, and employing an applicable policy action against an offending user or device. Policy Secure is a mobility ready network access control and BYOD solution that resides on the network and protects enterprises by seamless enforcement of security policies for all users, devices and applications accessing the enterprise.
