  • (1888PressRelease) November 11, 2015 - Pulse Secure, the leader in next generation secure access solutions for enterprises and service providers, is celebrating its one-year anniversary as a standalone entity, after separating from Juniper Networks. Building on 15 years of security experience, Pulse Secure is delivering next generation secure access solutions to address the evolving security needs of enterprise customers. Pulse Secure protects more than 20,000 customers and 18 million endpoints across all industries including finance, healthcare, public sector, manufacturing, and retail.

    "Since its spin-off from Juniper Networks last October, Pulse Secure has built strong momentum in the secure access space," said Jeff Wilson, research director, cybersecurity technology, IHS, a Campbell, California market research firm.

    Having completed a transition to operate as a standalone company in August, Pulse Secure has established global sales and support teams for its customers and partners. Pulse Secure's Connect Now Partner Program includes more than 1,500 partners in 95 countries including Computacenter, DimensionData, EMW, Help AG, Ingram Micro, Insight, MDS, Optiv, and SHI.

    "Help AG and Pulse Secure have had a long history together, actually extending beyond the one year anniversary we now celebrate. This is due to our relationship with Juniper and prior to that that, NetScreen and Neoteris which are all part of the pedigree that the solution is built upon," said Nicolai Solling, Director of Technology Services at Help AG. "Admittedly, we were slightly sceptical when Juniper sold off its SSL and NAC business a year ago to a freshly formed company, however today we can see that this has been a highly-positive development for the product line, as it has benefited from the investment and innovation brought in by Pulse Secure. This has elevated the offering from being just another remote access product to a robust secure access solution that takes into account the device, location and user."

    Pulse Secure is executing on its vision of Next Generation Secure Access, which combines the benefits of SSL VPN, network access control and mobility management to solve new customer use cases associated with "hybrid IT" environments - the need for devices to leverage enterprise data centers, public/private clouds and Software-as-a-Service applications.

    The company has significantly refreshed its product line over the last year, including major software releases for each of its main offerings: Pulse Connect Secure, Pulse Policy Secure and Pulse Workspace. In July, the company released the new Pulse Secure Appliance series, a high-performance set of devices that serve as the platform to help customers' solve their hybrid IT security challenges. Pulse One, the company's SaaS-based central policy manager, was announced earlier this year to provide a unified solution that enables customers to implement a total secure access environment.

    "In the last year, Pulse Secure has released a steady stream of product updates, award and customer wins, and channel news - a testament to the company's dedication, expertise and commitment," said Wilson. "I expect this momentum to continue in 2016, as they attack key problems in IoT, identity management, cloud, and BYOD security."

    Market-leading expertise
    To address the rapidly evolving needs of a dynamic and growing market, Pulse Secure has placed a strong emphasis on development of its employee base and leadership team. In addition to announcing Sudhakar Ramakrishna as CEO in June, Pulse Secure has increased its total number of employees by 50 percent to almost 500 total employees. Global expansion has also been a top priority for the company, and along with establishing its EMEA sales and go-to-market team, it has opened offices in London, Tokyo and Singapore.

    "At Pulse Secure, we are blazing the trail for next generation secure access by providing enterprises with solutions that promote increased performance, control and productivity. We do this without losing sight of what is important to the end-user: seamless access and superior experiences", said Ramakrishna.
