Pulse Secure, which provides secure access solutions to both enterprises and service providers, has announced new cloud and virtual appliances to support applications in hybrid IT environments.
Channel partners can now offer a more robust solution to customers, tailoring access to the unique hybrid IT deployment needs of each customer, securing the latest applications and user devices, and providing easy-to-implement disaster recovery methods. With a large number of Pulse Secure customers still using now discontinued first and second-generation appliances, channel partners have an opportunity to show customers how to easily upgrade and enhance their capabilities.
Enterprises are quickly moving to deploy hybrid IT, leveraging the cloud to introduce new user services and gain disaster recovery resiliency, as well as continuing to use the data center when they must have total control of the application. The latest cloud-based Pulse Secure Appliance (PSA) allows enterprises to adapt access security frameworks to address changing application environments that blend data center, infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings.
“Thousands of customers depend on Pulse Secure products to secure and enable easy access to their data center. They love the reliability of the platform and depend on its robust security to connect users to the information and applications they need to drive business,” said Prakash Mana, vice president of product management at Pulse Secure. “Increasingly, business-critical applications are moving to the cloud and our customers worry over security. Ideally, they would like to extend their existing security policies into a single security standard that uniformly protects both the data center and cloud. Our
cloud-based PSA helps them do exactly that. Now they can simply use their trusted Pulse Secure solution to protect enterprise information no matter where it is stored or how it is accessed.”
