Pulse Secure, the renowned provider of software-defined Secure Access solutions, announced a successful project with Interdata, as the first Pulse Secure Elite partner to launch a pay-as-you-grow, managed secure access service within France.
The Interdata EasyConnect service is aimed at enterprise customers and utilizes initially Pulse Connect Secure, the industry known TLS and cellphone VPN platform, then Pulse Policy Secure next-generation NAC solution, and Pulse SDP (Software Defined Perimeter) to enable enterprises to secure access to individual applications using an “authenticate first, then connect” Zero Trust approach.
End-to-end Secure Access solution
Working with innovative partners showcases the potential of our end-to-end Secure Access solution"
“The move away from legacy, perimeter-based controls and towards Zero Trust is accelerating across the world as enterprises seek to enable workforce mobility and cloud computing while mitigating endpoint, compliance and security risks such as advanced persistent threats and ransomware,” says Laurent Delattre, Vice President of Southern European Sales for Pulse Secure.
“Working with innovative partners such as Interdata showcases the potential of our end-to-end Secure Access solution to deliver a Zero Trust approach within the convenience of a SaaS deployment.”
Consolidate secure access infrastructure
The value proposition for both customer and service provider highlight the potential for additional Pulse Secure channel partners to create similar managed service offerings based on the successful example pioneered by Interdata. “Providing an easier way for enterprises to adopt key elements of Zero Trust with an integrated VPN, NAC and SDP offering is a crucial part of delivering Zero Trust security capabilities and we will be supporting our channel partners moving forward with this strategy,” Laurent Delattre adds.
Interdata is a French company that for the last 40 years has offered tailor-made services around the innovative network and cybersecurity solutions for private and public organizations. “Interdata EasyConnect allows Zero Trust access for external staff and partners to reach company resources wherever they are, in private or public cloud,” says Antoine Watissee, Deputy CEO at Interdata, “The service is aimed initially at cellphone users but has the capability to extend right across enterprises that want to streamline and consolidate secure access infrastructure.”
