Pulse Secure, a leading provider of secure access solutions to both enterprises and service providers, has announced that the IAIT Lab has completed an extensive test of Pulse Connect Secure.
The test resulted in positive findings across usability, comprehensiveness and interoperability for the VPN solution.
Pulse Connect Secure provides easy, secure, authenticated access for remote and mobile users to corporate resources – anytime, anywhere. Pulse Connect Secure is the most widely deployed SSL VPN for organisations of any size and across every major industry, to enable productivity through seamless, protected access to applications and information.
The solution offers zero trust-based secure access through integrated user, device and security state authentication and robust connection sets that ensure compliant pre- and post-connect access to hybrid IT infrastructure.
Pulse Connect Secure includes Pulse Secure Clients and the AppConnect SDK. Pulse Clients are dynamic, multiservice network clients, which can be implemented agent or agentless, for mobile and personal computing devices. Pulse Clients can be simply deployed, enabling users to quickly ‘click and connect’ from any device, anywhere. Pulse Secure AppConnect SDK delivers per application SSL VPN connectivity for iOS and Android clients, enabling IT departments to create an even more transparent and secure mobile app experience for their users.
The Institute for the Analysis of IT components (IAIT), an independent testing laboratory based in Germany, examined Pulse Connect Secure under real-world conditions through a series of testing scenarios. The highly detailed, nine-page report covers 16 core functions ranging from initial configuration, policy development, through enterprise on-boarding, host checking functionality, FQDN split tunnelling, multi-factor authentication, as well as data centre and cloud Single Sign On along with interoperability with a range of third-party applications.
