New cloud and virtual solutions have been announced by Pulse Secure to provide hybrid IT environments secure access. The overall solution is an adaptable access security framework that looks to help motivate enterprises to move to the cloud.
Pulse Secure helps enterprises accelerate this transformation. By using an adaptable access security framework, enterprises can confidently move applications to the cloud and leverage IaaS and SaaS to reduce operational costs and expedite new end-user services. In times of crisis or disaster, enterprises have a simpler and faster way to normalize user productivity without changing user behavior.
“Thousands of customers depend on Pulse Secure products to secure and enable easy access to their data center. They love the reliability of the platform and depend on its robust security to connect users to the information and applications they need to drive business,” said Prakash Mana, vice president of product management at Pulse Secure. “Increasingly, business-critical applications are moving to the cloud and our customers worry over security. Ideally, they would like to extend their existing security policies into a single security standard that uniformly protects both the data center and cloud. Our cloud-based PSA helps them do exactly that. Now they can simply use their trusted Pulse Secure solution to protect enterprise information no matter where it is stored or how it is accessed.”
The addition of virtual and cloud-based appliances gives customers greater operational freedom, peace of mind and agility. Customers have greater deployment choices for their hybrid IT environments with the price and performance parity of the expanded PSA family. Consistent security is ensured for their hybrid IT deployments by extending their proven data center security policies to applications hosted by Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. Enterprises can use Pulse One centralized management for total operational control and visibility of access to their hybrid IT environment.
The PSA family is designed to flexibly meet the access challenges of any enterprise with appliances that scale from 200 to 25,000 concurrent sessions and form factors that accommodate data center, office and cloud environments.
Pulse Secure customers can easily transform their Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution into a Secure Access solution, connecting mobile workers to company resources in the data center and cloud and delivering an optimum user experience.
