Pulse Secure Remote Access Overview

Enterprise access security has been redefined by “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD), Mobility, and Cloud Services
IT organisations continue to rely on their virtual private network (VPN) investments to address everyday business challenges that include securely connecting third-party workers, self-service transaction-based endpoints, high-volume branch sites, and business continuity.

  • Per-app access where any mobile app access is supported without modification, app wrapping, or SDK
  • Always-on access where a VPN is automatically established based regardless of user setting
