Pulse Secure, global provider of software-defined Secure Access solutions to both enterprises and service providers, has announced that it has become a member of the MSPAlliance, the oldest managed services group and the only accrediting and standards based body created specifically for the managed services provider industry.
Secure Access services
Recognising the push towards utility computing and an expectation for workforce mobility, multi-cloud performance and Zero Trust defenses, organisations are increasingly relying on MSSPs – fueling double digit growth for Secure Access services. Through its Access Now program, Pulse Secure works with Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) and Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) to enable Secure Access as a service.
Pulse Secure helps partners cost-effectively accelerate differentiation and build out their service portfolios
By offering versions of its award-winning Pulse Access Suite packaged specifically for service providers, Pulse Secure helps partners cost-effectively accelerate differentiation and build out their service portfolios to meet the massive demand for protected connectivity to cloud applications and hybrid IT resources.
Pulse Secure has invited its current and prospective partners to join a panel of service provider experts in a webcast entitled “Zero Trust Access as a Managed Service: What, Why, How,” on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 9 a.m. PT / 12 a.m. ET / 4 p.m. GMT.
“We’re pleased to be a member of the MSPAlliance and lend our voice to the evolution of the managed services and cloud services industry,” said Matt Weaver, vice president at Pulse Secure. “As digital risks grow, security solutions that support hybrid IT growth and strengthen overall security posture are increasingly critical to the acceptance and success of managed services and cloud solutions.”
The Pulse Access Suite delivers protected connectivity, operational intelligence and threat response across mobile, network and multi-cloud environments in order to provide easy, compliant access for end users and single-pane-of-glass management for administrators. Pulse Secure partners can help their customers centrally manage Zero Trust Secure Access to applications, resources and services that are delivered on-premise, in private cloud and public cloud environments.
The company’s Access Suite comprises VPN and cloud access, Mobile Device Management (MDM), Single Sign-on (SSO), endpoint and IoT device visibility, Software Defined Perimeter (SDP), Network Access Control (NAC) and virtual Application Delivery Controller (vADC) solutions.
Integrated Software Defined Perimeter
Pulse Secure offers integrated Software Defined Perimeter functionality for its Secure Access solution
Pulse Secure also offers integrated Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) functionality that complements its Secure Access solution set by offering direct device-to-application/resource secure connectivity only after successful user, device and security state verification, including geo location and behavior-based anomaly detection. In effect, SDP extends Zero Trust capabilities while delivering provisioning simplicity, security posture fortification and lower total cost of ownership.
“We are delighted to have Pulse Secure as a member of our global association,” said Celia Weaver, MSPAlliance president. “By upholding the MSPAlliance Managed Service Provider’s Code of Ethics, Pulse Secure will work with MSPAlliance, as well as their industry peers, to help ensure the integrity of the managed services and cloud profession.”
