How It Works:

How It Works

Pulse Workspace is managed via the Pulse One console. Enterprise administrators send an email invite to users to self-provision their mobile device. The native email client is automatically provisioned to connect with Exchange Online using the user’s username and a unique token generated by Pulse One. The Connect Secure appliance federates with Office 365 via SAML ECP. Upon receiving a login request, Office 365 delegates authentication responsibility to Connect Secure. Connect Secure verifies the user with Active Directory and checks the security posture of the device with Pulse One. Email and data flow directly between the native email client and Office 365.

Self-Service Provisioning
Automatic configuration of user’s email, VPN and Wi-Fi settings eliminates help desk calls.

Identity Management
Leverage existing Active Directory facilities to control access to Office 365 and other cloud services.

SSO Access
Certificate-based authentication and SSO give users easy access to Office 365 (MFS) and other cloud services (SAML).

Hostchecking
Compliance enforcement ensures that only secured devices can access Office 365 and other cloud services.

BYOD Container
Android and iOS container security encrypts data, controls app data sharing, selectively wipes data and supports per app connectivity policies.

Mobile App Management
Policy-based push of Word, Powerpoint, Excel and other native apps boosts user productivity.
