IT analyst Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has named Pulse Secure a leader in hybrid IT secure access platform solutions.
Pulse Secure was selected by EMA as a top three vendor in three-related product categories and was the only vendor among more than 60 assessed to achieve the highest ratings across these Hybrid IT categories.
Driven by digital business transformation, the world of securing access to enterprise applications, data and other IT services continues to evolve at a rapid pace.
Emerging requirements for workforce mobility, distributed data centers, virtual and cloud-based IT environments, and data protection have yielded significant access control complexities.
Founded in 1996, industry analyst EMA specialises in providing insight across IT and data management technologies.
EMA conducted research to identify the access security issues facing organisations today, including a survey of executives from over 200 enterprises and an analysis of hundreds of vendor product briefings, case studies and demonstrations.
The published report identified ten priorities for enabling secure access to enterprise IT services and offers insight into key challenges, considerations and technologies.
The report also supports IT decision makers' vendor-selection process as it names 30 of the most innovative vendor solutions addressing the greatest array of requirements for secure access enablement, highlighting Pulse Secure's leadership ranking across three categories:
- Unifying access control across hybrid IT ecosystems
- Enabling secure remote access to business networks
- Network Access Control with IoT enablement
