SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pulse Secure, the leading provider of software-defined Secure Access solutions, announced today that the 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards has named Pulse Access Suite as the gold winner of its Secure Access Solution category.

The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards recognize companies, products and individuals that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security.

“The Secure Access category is experiencing a resurgence driven by increased workforce mobility, IOT security and cloud computing trends. Congratulations to Pulse Secure for being recognized as the gold winner in the Best Secure Access Solution category in the 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards,” said Holger Schulze, CEO of Cybersecurity Insiders and founder of the Information Security Community. “Over 400,000 information security practitioners and analysts worldwide, members of the Cybersecurity Insiders group, participated in the nomination and award selection process.

“Digital business is here and demands ubiquitous accessibility. This brings a myriad of end user devices, IoT, workforce mobility, and multi-cloud requirements. This trend also introduces new exposures, threat actors and attack vectors,” said Scott Gordon, chief marketing officer at Pulse Secure.

“Today, many enterprises have amassed a variety of secure access solutions through Firewalls, UTMs, NAC, gateways, proxies and VPNs, resulting in unnecessary complexity for users and administrators, visibility and security gaps, and high integration and operational costs. In response, Pulse Secure delivers an integrated Secure Access suite that works with a customer’s existing investment and access ecosystem to consolidate disparate remote and cloud access controls and avoid expensive administrative, licensing and management overhead,” Gordon concluded.

Earlier this month, Pulse Secure announced new Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) functionality that complements its integrated 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. As a result, organizations gain seamless accessibility while streamlining access provisioning, improving performance and reducing the visible attack surface. More so, organizations gain greater economies and a non-disruptive way to readily implement SDP functionality when, where and how they require.

Pulse Secure invites customers, practitioners, partners and media to see its Access Suite and Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) solution in action at North Hall, Booth #5579 - RSA Conference 2019 on March 4-7 in San Francisco.
