Pulse Secure, a leading provider of software-defined Secure Access solutions, has announced the launch of Pulse Zero Trust Access (PZTA), a cloud-based, multi-tenant secure access service that enables Pulse Secure channel and MSSP partners to provide enterprise users easy, anywhere access to multi-cloud and data centre applications with Zero Trust assurance.
PZTA delivers Zero Trust-as-a-Service, empowering the channel to extend its secure access business opportunities, driven by a remote workplace and utility computing trends. Based on a per user annual subscription model, the service simplifies access management with single pane of glass visibility, end to end analytics, granular policies, automated provisioning and advanced threat mitigation designed for today’s increasingly mobile workforce and hybrid IT resources.
PZTA is based on Pulse Secure’s new cloud-native, microservices-based, multi-tenant platform deployed globally in Microsoft Azure Cloud. The PZTA service consists of the Pulse ZTA Controller, which is hosted and managed by Pulse Secure, the virtual Pulse ZTA Gateway that partners can deploy on customers’ on-premises or in the cloud, and the unified Pulse ZTA Client which runs natively on each user’s Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS and iOS and Google Android device.
“As a channel focused business, we provide solutions that enable easy and profitable delivery by our worldwide network of partners. Pulse Zero Trust Access follows in that same model, enabling our partners to provide Zero Trust as a service along with their own Value Added services to our mutual customers and their growing need to optimise secure access capabilities across data centre and cloud resources,” said Alex Thurber, Chief Revenue Officer at Pulse Secure.
“The current health crisis has highlighted the need for simple, yet scalable, secure access. By offering a complete Zero Trust, application access service from a single, trusted vendor – partners can provide a comprehensive solution that is up and running in days with a compelling, hybrid IT value proposition at a time of increased demand for workplace flexibility and cloud migration,” said Paul Donovan, Vice President of EMEA sales.Click below to share this article
