• Pulse Secure solutions highlighted in new Zero Trust market report

        • Pulse Secure, a provider of software-defined Secure Access solutions has announced its Access Suite and SDP solutions were recognised in a recently published analyst report 'Market Insights: Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) for Zero Trust Network Security, 2020.'

          The Software-Defined Perimeter market insights report, by Quadrant Knowledge Solutions, presents market definitions, drivers, primary use cases, trends, solution characteristics and architectures, as well as market recommendations and vendor profiles.

          According to the report, “Software-Defined Perimeter technology is emerging as an advanced network security solution for today's complex, interconnected world. SDP follows a Zero Trust approach, wherein the default network security posture is that of deny. Access is granted upon authenticating and authorizing both user and device. By pre-authorizing users and devices prior to making the application layer access (applications and resources), SDP protects enterprises from a range of attacks. The debate of SDP as a complete replacement over VPN (SSL-VPN), that SSL-VPN is insecure, or SSL-VPN lacking Zero Trust capabilities – is all moot. SSL-VPN is a proven, widely used tool for secure remote access. Advanced SSL-VPNs operate at the application layer and offer Zero Trust functionality.”

          Piyush Dewangan, Industry Research Manager at Quadrant Knowledge Solutions said, “Pulse Access Suite with SDP has extensive functional capabilities and greater infrastructure, security and application interoperability that supports, comparatively, a broader and more diverse range of use cases. The company is distinguished among zero trust, secure access solution vendors, especially for enterprises and service providers operating hybrid IT and multi-cloud environments.”

          Pulse Secure’s Zero Trust value proposition is realised through its Access Suites that deliver continuous user and device authentication, protected connectivity, extensive visibility and threat response across mobile, network and cloud environments. The integrated Suites offer enterprises easy access for end-users and single-pane-of-glass management for administrators. Organisations can centrally orchestrate Zero Trust policy to ensure compliant access to applications, resources and services no matter where they reside; on-premises, in private cloud and public cloud environments. Pulse SDP, Software Defined Perimeter, is an add-on to the Suite that extends secure access capabilities by allowing direct, trusted access between a user’s device and the application residing in the cloud or data centre.

          Scott Gordon, Chief Marketing Officer at Pulse Secure added, “the need for Zero Trust network security has never been greater, especially due to increased targeted attacks, rapid work from home mandates, and mounting privacy compliance obligations. We have seen tremendous demand for our Pulse Access Suites as organizations consolidate their secure access tech stack to gain agility, scale and cyber risk mitigation. We are pleased to receive Zero Trust security market distinction and welcome organizations to explore our Access Suite to see how it can cost-effectively improve user productivity and enterprise security posture.”
