Pulse Secure recognised as a top NAC Vendor

Pulse Secure, a provider of Zero Trust Secure Access solutions, has been recognised by Frost & Sullivan as a top ten NAC vendor by global revenue market share and one of six leading vendors to show market share gain.

The 2020 Frost & Sullivan Network Access Control (NAC) Market, Forecast to 2024 report states that NAC is a foundational technology for Zero Trust Network (ZTN). 

Tony Massimini, Senior Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan said, "based on the principle of 'never trust, always verify,' Zero Trust Network (ZTN) is a general approach for leveraging various security technologies to enable perimeter enforcement and strict access controls. Security vendors with broad product portfolios are integrating their NAC solutions. NAC orchestrates and integrates with a variety of network and security infrastructure to support ZTN."

Pulse Secure offers a portfolio of software-driven Secure Access solutions that deliver on usability, contextual intelligence and policy orchestration to support data centre and hybrid IT environments while enabling organisations to attain Zero Trust networking benefit. Sold separately or as part of a Secure Access Suite, Pulse Policy Secure (PPS) is a full-featured NAC solution that is easy to deploy, manage and scale.

Highlights of Pulse Secure's NAC solution within the report include:

  • Markets: Visibility, guest access, BYOD enablement, granular policy enforcement, network segmentation and scalability are main drivers supporting growth, primarily in mid-size to large enterprise across financial services, government, healthcare, high tech and manufacturing.
  • Product: Pulse Secure NAC provides 360-degree visibility and access enforcement to see, monitor and control managed, unknown and IoT devices connecting locally or remotely to the network – extensive guest management, access enforcement and reporting with built-in UEBA.
  • Value: Customers can start with Pulse Profiler to discover, assess and inventory network endpoint and IoT devices.
