Pulse Secure Provides Educational Organizations with Visibility and Secure Access
Pulse Secure provides a comprehensive way for schools and educational organizations to secure their environments while accommodating constantly changing dynamics as well as pursuing new digital learning initiatives. Our security framework controls access to the central office network, individual schools and on-prem or cloud-data centers based on based on user, role, device, location, time, network and application, as well as endpoint security state. It extends limited internal visibility to full visibility across all users, locations, networks and devices and enables consistent security policies across constantly evolving infrastructure while eliminating blind spots and weak links in the potential attack surface.
Visibility of What’s on the Network
Educational organizations can use Pulse Profiler to automatically detect and continuously profile managed and agentless devices on various networks and resources. With a single view of all devices connecting to all environments, the security administrator can monitor devices for profile changes, track device inventory for asset management and gather connectivity information for troubleshooting. Pulse Profiler provided visibility, with threat reduction by Pulse Policy Secure, ensures that companies are fully protected from malware attacks and detected threats are rapidly isolated and mitigated.
Granular Security Policies for any Use Case
Educational organizations can implement a policy-driven “comply-to-connect” strategy that controls access to resources and services, based on device type and health, domain, locations, resources, users and groups. Pulse Policy Secure NAC strengthens network security posture with capabilities that include endpoint vulnerability assessments, device posture checks and alert integration with next generation firewalls for speedy mitigation.
Secure Access Regardless of Location, Device or User
Employees and students can use the Pulse Client to securely access necessary resources remotely via the Pulse Connect Secure VPN, or locally via the school’s WiFi network. Pulse Policy Secure authenticates employees and students locally based on their role and desired resource, automatically provisioning firewalls without manual intervention to provide remote access and immediately access proper resources.
