Pulse Secure: Workspace - BYOD Containerization

Pulse Workspace

Pulse Workspace provides a trusted BYOD container for iOS and Android that secures the apps your company needs and gives workers a native user experience that separates work and life.

With Pulse Workspace, corporate and employee data, applications, communications, and networking are segregated—eliminating data leakage and protecting data with workspace encryption, remote enterprise wipe, and VPN connectivity. All key data, such as contacts, messages, and installed applications (on the personal side) remain invisible to the administrator. The workspace protects employee privacy while allowing enterprises to meet compliance and security requirements.

BYOD Nightmares

Device Ownership Battles
Who really owns the device? Encrypt and wipe corporate data without harming or accessing personal user data.
Implementing Security Standards.
PIN or password control, data at rest encryption, on-demand VPN access, protection from man in the middle attacks and root detection.
VPNs or Public Access?
Decide and implement per application what applications are blocked, access the internet or tunneled in a VPN.

  • Security
    Pulse Workspace provides container security that encrypts all data at rest, controls data sharing between enterprise apps, wipes corporate data without affecting personal information and connects directly to the enterprise VPN.

    Pulse Secure's App Virtualization technology for Android is key to BYOD security because it raises the Android security bar to the same level as iOS.

    The threat of man-in-the-middle attacks and malware is eliminated because the Workspace prevents personal apps from accessing enterprise connections.
  • Privacy
    Separates personal BYOD data/apps from corporate apps and data. Pulse Workspace respects user privacy and choice, limiting IT visibility and control to the enterprise container and giving workers a native user experience on their personal device of choice.
  • Management
    Enterprise IT can enforce compliance policies, such as Android root detection, with certificate revocation or ActiveSync controls to supervise network access based on Workspace health.
  • Compatibility & Application Support
    Pulse Workspace is the only security solution that does not modify iOS and Android apps with app-wrapping or require the use of an SDK.
