Pulse Connect Secure plays a key role in outside access to corporate resources. When others want to implement the solution for the first time, they should collect complete information. For example, they should know the reasons they want to allow access to the connection from outside to inside when the user connects. They should know what resources are needed to provide access to the particular user. When integrating the solution to the domain it should not be done with the local authentication, but it should be integrated with the domain authentication with some spare policy for the domain users, such as every 30 days the password should expire or need to be changed. They should use multifactor authentication. I rate Pulse Connect Secure a seven out of ten.

From what I know, I'm using the latest version of Pulse Connect Secure because the IT department keeps on updating the software automatically. More than fifty thousand employees use Pulse Connect Secure in my organization. What I would tell others looking into using the solution is that it's easy to install and use, so why not use Pulse Connect Secure? My rating for Pulse Connect Secure is eight out of ten. I'm a user of Pulse Connect Secure, not a partner.

We're a customer and end-user. I don't have specific advice for that product, however, potential new users should know that it's secure. I would rate the solution nine out of ten.

We are a customer and an end-user. Last year, this solution was bought by Ivanti. Now it's called Ivanti Connect Secure. Basically, it's been the same product since 2007. It's still the same product yet it has been evolving, of course. We are using the latest version of the solution. I'd advise potential new users to do some homework on what network resources they want to present to their users, and what will be the conditions they will impose on their end-users as for users' credentials, for example, multi-factor authentication for start. Also, they should look at the host checking on their client PCs. For example, they need to consider what will be the conditions to access certain resources, as that will be important for their configuration at the outset. I'd rate the solution an eight out of ten.

I would recommend it depending on the size of the organization. I would recommend it for small to medium size organizations but not for big global companies. I would rate Pulse Connect Secure a six out of 10.

From my research and experiences, I would say that this is not the best solution on the market, but it is one of the best. When it comes to setting up a super-secret connection, it may not be possible to make it much easier. I think that when it comes to a secret connection with two-factor authentication, you need to follow the steps. The only real complaint that I have about Pulse Connect Secure is the instability that comes from the disconnections. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I can safely say this is one of the best solutions I have seen for VPN access. It can achieve what other vendors may not be able to. This product will train you about exactly what an SSL should be. You can leverage it to do whatever you wish, the way you wish to do it. This is the solution if you want a perfectly scalable product for your enterprise that can help your mobile users and integrate with the latest technologies. I would rate it a ten out of ten.
