Robust VPN

It is being used across the whole organization for securing our connections. We have internal applications, endpoints, etc..., that need to be private but not just by credentials, through the network too due to the level of their confidentiality. It also allows instant access to all applications by just logging in one time with the Client.
  • Securing network
  • Changing public IP address also for internal apps
  • Not requesting extra security logging after you get up
  • Stability on connection
  • It's a little slower
  • Requires to be careful with the configuration on network
  • It seems to cause a weird behavior in MAC when loading after turn on sometimes
It is well suited for large corporations for granularity on users' roles, security levels for each application, and for logging in with an extra security layer. For doing demanding network tasks, like downloading a large set of data or for streaming, it could get slower than with a direct connection.

Ours is an onshore partnership organization, so we are based out of India and the virtual desktop we work is connected to US servers. To facilitate the secured connection between remote systems, we first connect to pulse secure client and then log in to the remote server. This ensures the connection is safe and secure to use. So basically it is being deployed as a secure VPN for connection
  • Provides a secured VPN network
  • Works particularly well with windows OS with very little downtime
  • Is economical to use
  • While connecting to pulse secure, it requires a long time and it can be frustrating
  • Requires betha stable internet connection, in case you lose connection for even a millisecond the connection will be lost.
  • No option of autofill for setting up the connection, it is basically for the security purpose but there should be an option for autofill
In this hybrid working model, where we need to use remote desktop it becomes necessity to use a safe and secured VPN connection which will ensure the organisations data is safe, pulse secure client offers that solution. There is two factor authentication which adds another layer to the security. It works particularly well with Windows OS.

It is being used as the defacto VPN service for internal development. Necessary to connect off-site to internal databases. It's also used by sales staff on-site to connect to virtual machines.
  • Provides what any VPN should provide
  • Works on many OSs, though I will relay my Mac OS experience in another section of the review
  • Their clientless VPN offering could be interesting, depending on your needs
  • Their Mac OS testing needs a lot of work. I upgraded to Big Sur, and on a managed machine, Pulse Secure caused a Kernel crash that forced the machine to reboot endlessly. This took months to be fixed, and I wasn't able to use it until then.
  • It's very difficult to add some advanced policies to the administrative aspect of the client. For example, to check if a machine is managed by the company, or owned by the user (in order to block certain resources), it's basically impossible, or incredibly convoluted and requires a stack of 3rd party tools
  • The pulse secure client collects more information than you might know about. Be aware of this: “[Pulse Secure] may have access to personal information, but does not collect it”
  • The host checker is very slow, and has to be reinvoked on every reconnect.
  • Sometimes the Application Launcher doesn't even detect itself running and forces you to reinstall.
It offers what most VPNs offer for companies in a managed environment, so you can be sure you'll get a VPN that functions properly. But if you need special policies, faster reconnects (or fewer reconnects overall), more compatibility with new OSs, and a more strict privacy policy, opt for an alternative.
