Pulse Secure, provider of software-defined Secure Access solutions has launched Pulse Zero Trust Access (PZTA), a cloud-based, multi-tenant secure access service that enables organisations to provide users easy, anywhere access to multi-cloud and data centre applications with Zero Trust assurance.
PZTA simplifies access management with single-pane-of-glass visibility, end-to-end analytics, granular policies, automated provisioning, and advanced threat mitigation that empowers organisations to further optimise their increasingly mobile workforce and hybrid IT resources.
As enterprises advance workforce mobility and business digitisation, users require access to on-premises and cloud applications from any device, from any location, and at any time. Meanwhile, cyberattacks, data breaches and compliance obligations have grown significantly, making trust and adaptive control critical. PZTA offers users streamlined application access while allowing organisations to govern every request by automatically verifying identity, device and security posture before granting a direct, encrypted connection between that user's device and applications residing in public clouds, private clouds or data centres.
Rohini Kasturi, chief product officer at Pulse Secure said, “IT leaders are driving business transformation in the hybrid digital era while also defending assets during the ‘age of hyper-converged access’ – for any user, from any device, anywhere to any application, at any time. Pulse Zero Trust Access is designed for the elastic digital workplace, providing a unified, cloud-based service that enables greater accessibility, efficiency and risk reduction. From inception, Pulse Secure has focused on providing secure access solutions that enhance productivity, visibility and compliance as companies migrate to the cloud and take advantage of utility computing. PZTA exemplifies our on-going commitment to innovate while maximizing deployment flexibility, scale, interoperability and investment protection for companies of all sizes.”
PZTA is based on Pulse Secure’s new cloud-native, microservices-based, multi-tenant platform deployed globally in Microsoft Azure Cloud. The PZTA service consists of the Pulse ZTA Controller, which is hosted and managed by Pulse Secure, the virtual Pulse ZTA Gateway that customers deploy on-premises or in the cloud, and the unified Pulse ZTA Client which runs natively on each user’s Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS and iOS, and Google Android device.
