Pulse Secure: Pulse Zero Trust Access

12 November 2020

Rising numbers of mobile workers and increasing data threats were cited by Pulse Secure as it introduced its Pulse Zero Trust Access service.

It comprises the Pulse ZTA Controller, hosted and managed by Pulse; the virtual Pulse ZTA Gateway that customers deploy on-premises or in the cloud; and the Pulse ZTA Client which runs on each user’s Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS and iOS and Android device.

Pulse says it offers users streamlined access while allowing organisations to govern every request by automatically verifying users’ identity, device and security posture before granting direct, encrypted connection to applications in public/private clouds or data centres.

Gateways are deployed in the customer’s on-premise and cloud environment closest to the application or resource which, says the company, optimises users’ experience, reduces latency and enables hybrid IT deployment at scale.

Available for companies of any size, the service is priced at an annual subscription per user, with discounts for 500-plus and multi-year agreements.
