Pulse Secure, the provider of Secure Access solutions to both enterprises and service providers, announces that the company has been recognised as one of the private technology startups in the elite 2018 Red Herring Top 100 Global ranking.
“With the pervasiveness of mobile, IoT and cloud, assuring protected access to applications and sensitive information is a key challenge for IT organisations of all sizes. This is exactly the problem that Pulse Secure has addressed with its portfolio of Secure Access solutions for hybrid IT,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “As we rigorously narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates, we saw the resurgence of the Secure Access market space and Pulse Secure’s expansive position, technology and growth as compelling reasons to name them to our exclusive list of the 100 top technology startups in the world.”
Red Herring’s recognition of Pulse Secure is another great honor because it is a testament to our focus on customer success"
Digital transformation has forced IT organisations to further empower end-user computing and deliver dynamic provisioning of always-on access to business applications and information. This trend has increased endpoint and IoT threats, compliance exposures and operational expenditures – requiring organisations to reassess their technology stack that comprises Secure Access. Pulse Secure provides an integrated suite of software-driven Secure Access solutions that allow organisations to take advantage of hybrid IT in a zero-trust world.
“Our customers are moving from cumbersome and costly individual remote, network and cloud security products to our integrated Secure Access suites that offers greater usability, flexibility, manageability and savings,” said Sudhakar Ramakrishna, CEO of Pulse Secure. “Red Herring’s recognition of Pulse Secure is another great honor because it is a testament to our focus on customer success, business achievement and the strength of our development efforts.”
Pulse Secure offers a simple, comprehensive and integrated set of Secure Access solutions spanning remote virtual private network (VPN) and cloud access security; mobile device management (MDM), network visibility, IoT security and network access control (NAC); and virtual application delivery control (ADC). Available as part of its Pulse Access Suite, the award-winning solutions allows organisations to ensure user experience while offering centralised management, real-time visibility and adaptive protection to mitigate data center virtualisation and cloud computing access risks.

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) recently distinguished Pulse Secure as a ‘Top Three’ Secure Access vendor and the only vendor, among more than 60 assessed, to achieve the highest ratings across Hybrid IT categories.

Identifying promising companies
Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognise that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube and eBay would change the way we live and work.
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track records and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the ‘buzz’ and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world.
