|The certification boosts mobile application productivity with Android for Work, simplifying secure access, policy enforcement and management
Pulse Secure, the provider of secure access solutions has announced certification of Pulse Workspace, by Google as part of the Android for Work programme. The latest Pulse Workspace version offers enhanced Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) capabilities designed specifically to help IT departments through a cloud-based console to set policies, monitor usage and manage apps for the Work Profile including the distribution of apps and the purchase of bulk app licenses through Google Play for Work.
“The certification of Pulse Workspace by Google and continual enhancements to the platform are part of a wider strategy to remove the security silos that hamper organisations securing an increasingly mobile workforce,” explains David Goldschlag, SVP of Strategy and CTO for Pulse Secure, “With Pulse Workspace we are supporting mobile devices by extending the investment our customers have made in secure access for laptops and Macs.”
For some time, users of Android devices have relied upon Pulse Secure’s SSL VPN, Pulse Connect Secure, to deliver secure access to corporate applications and data. Pulse Workspace builds on this foundation and delivers secure corporate workspaces through the native interface provided by Android for Work. Workers bringing their own device (BYOD) can now be assured of privacy while corporate IT maintains control over apps and data.
