Secure Access for SaaS

Retool security for mobile and the cloud

Retool your security to deliver secure access for laptops and mobile devices to the data center and cloud. Pulse Connect Secure provides a secure access Client that works with your enterprise mobility management (EMM) platform to give secure cloud access. Enterprises can optionally use Pulse Workspace to provide endpoint device management and policy-based connectivity via a BYOD container.

Challenges:


Data Leakage


Data Leakage

Authorized users download cloud data to unsecured devices, such as their home PC, increasing compliance risk.

Password Issues


Password Issues

Password complexity and duration policies trigger help desk calls which Forrester estimates annually costs companies $179 per user.

Login Headaches


Login Headaches

Separate logins for cloud services and data center applications create task friction for users.


Solution:

Solution Components

How It Works:

How It Works

The Pulse Client automatically launches in the background to deliver strong auth and ensure device compliance when users access cloud or data center applications. The client enables SSO use with certificate authentication to eliminate the need for passwords. Traffic to the data center for applications such as SAP use the VPN tunnel. Cloud traffic only uses the tunnel for SSO and authentication with application data flowing directly between the endpoint and the service provider. Existing identity stores such as Active Directory provide authentication. Integration with IdPs can also be configured to support existing cloud deployments. The solution can be used with Pulse Workspace or can be integrated with third party EMM platforms such as MobileIron or AirWatch.

Host Checking
Compliance enforcement ensures that only secured devices access Office 365, Box and other cloud services.

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 cloud services using SAML and data center applications via legacy methods.

Centralized Management
Pulse One provides a centralized console with dashboard visibility, workspace management and reporting.

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

EMM Integration
Integrate with existing EMM solutions to manage devices and provide compliance status information.
