Pros: The best part of the app is we can access any where from any location. We have an another option check weather devices are connecting to the network or not automatically. Provides automatic configurations of the devices without loss of productivity.Pulse secure Vadc and suite are two mostly used in real time industry.An "Enterprise" VPN allows people to access their corporate or work network from home, or any other location out of their office.

Pulse Secure is nothing like those other VPN providers you linked to. Those are for encrypting your Internet browsing.

Pulse Secure does not do that for home users or general consumers. Pulse Secure is implemented by companies who purchase their physical or virtual appliances and implement them in their organizations.

Cons: UI part need to be enhanced . remove the unrelated options over the screen

Pros: When it comes to VPNs, simplicity is king. I downloaded the client, entered the VPN url, and hit connect! After entering my username/password, I was in and that was it. You can't get any simpler than that. On top of it, the Pulse Secure platform has nice web-based features as well for connecting to the VPN and accessing resources from within the browser.

Cons: While simplicity is definitely king, sometimes there are a few options you wish you would have! For me, it was the ability to decide which traffic goes through the Connect Secure app and which stays within the local network. Because I can't let local traffic stay local, I ended up having to remote to servers that I could normally access directly.

Overall: Great enterprise class VPN that keeps it simple for end users, but a little lacking for power users that want to get their hands dirty.

Pros: This is an important tool used by many to connect to VPNs, and is easy to use once the gateway is set up. I have used it both to access online documents that are only accessible on an institution network and a work network. Some online databases are expensive to purchase, so it is unfeasible to buy it on my own, but using Connect Secure through my work allowed me to access the literature remotely and helped me finish many late night projects from the comfort of my home.

It also has allowed for access to a network for work so I could use my laptop at work without having to plug it into the wall with an Ethernet cable.

Cons: The set up process for installing gateways can be time consuming and very difficult for people who do not know what they are doing. The help page is not as useful as it should be, and setup will most likely require assistance for users who have never done it before and are not as experienced with computers.

I understand that the connection process itself is difficult, but an easier guide on how to do it on your own should be a priority for ease-of-access of Connect Secure.

Overall: This allowed me to connect to work and an institution from home so I had access to a variety of useful literature and documents. I could work from the comfort of my home using Connect Secure.

Pros: This is an option for VPN that we use for one of our secure PCI compliant environments. It has a headend device and the java client that you access through the web is horrible but the pulse secure client you can download and use from their website is much better. It has very little in the way of options in the client except for a client url. the rest is downloaded from the VPN device itself. The VPN device is fully customizable allowing for role based vpn profiles and many different settings for network access on each of those profiles.

Cons: the built in java based client only works part of the time and is very picky about what version of java you use and what OS you use it on. the pulse secure client is much better.

Overall: VPN on a budget

Pros: This is one of the best VPN tools used by world forturne 500 companies since because it has the global countries system to get connected. Using this software we can prevent our business and system from entering the unauthorized usage access as this has very secure firewall which blocks the fake requests that are being connected to the system and its good 2 Factor authentication helps us to join the client location servers in secure manner and work safely. this is the best software i ever seen

Cons: The least about this software is nothing but due to some maintainance activity the VPN gets hung though we will have another backup teritorry to get connected with but this helps in maintain the gap for business so this has to be improved

using this to get connected with my VPN,new version provide new features and support for new OSs.

Pros: i have never faced any difficulty connecting to my VPN using this always able to access to this from anywhere any time and from any network.

very strong privacy setting without any complex network setting. some feature like device check before it actually let you connected , automatic configuration of device without any productivity loss, single sign on work upto the user expectation and i never get stuck with any of these. These works perfectly for me.

Overall: it is an awesome unified security management software and will recommend it to everyone.

Pros: Easy to use software to connect through VPN (Virtual Private Network) to the company's internal network.

This software provides a secure extension of the local area network (LAN) over a public or uncontrolled network such as the Internet, to access the internal files (with the necessary permissions) of the company where you work safely.

It has a simple interface, it is selected the connection previously configured by the system administrator, click connect and now.

Cons: I have not detected any disadvantages yet. You must have the necessary permissions to access and this gives robustness to the security of the information established by the company.

Pros: This software is simple, easy to install, and easy to use. This is the primary VPN that my work allows us to use, and I use it very frequently when I work remotely from home. I click the connect button, enter my password, and in a few seconds I'm able to remote desktop into my work machine.

Cons: Occasionally it complains about the Java version you have installed on your machine, so as long as you update that when needed, this software runs without a problem.

Cons: There is nothing I can say about this handy little tool that is bad - it is easy and I would be entirely lost without it

Overall: Extremely easy to use remote access tool - totally secure

Pros: The product has quite a lot of options, although they the interface can look a bit complicated. It's a stable solution and since it has been sold by Juniper there seem to more innovation in the product as well.

Cons: Interface can look a bit complicated due to the many options and submenus that are available. Sometimes bugs in updates of the client software can cause a lot of problems, so testing of new versions is essential before a broader implementation.

Overall: I have been working with the product for a long time and it has always been a stable and secure solution. Over the years there didn't seem to be many improvements, especially when it was under Juniper ownership. Now that it has been separated, the product line has been expanded and there seems to be more focus on the product.

Pros: So I have been using pulse from past 1 month in my company ,I can surely say that it is the best software out there to use if you are in a working environment. I was provided a licensed version from my company side,as I travel a lot and connect to the general wifi's ,I find it extremely useful to have. The verification process and the easy set up options makes it a cherry on the cake. You can verify connection either py push notification or even by 1 time otp generation. If you are a part of a company then I would highly recommend to use it.

Cons: There isn't anything that I don't like about this app. One thing that could be added is that for verification they can add a fingerprint option too as I mostly use otp and push notification generation from my mobile. Inbuilt fingerprint in laptop will be a great option for verification.

Overall: The secure connection for every organisation is a must if you are on a public network. It comes always handy to me and my fellows.I would highly recommend to give it a try.

Cons: the only issues i have with this program is that it tends to not be as specific as i need it to be. it tends to be a bit generalized.

Pros: The ease to use the software, everything is done in a one click fashion. And it also has a lot of options to log in to the vpn in case you don't want or cannot use a method.

Cons: Sometimes 2 step authentication can be strangely hard to make and if you do not disconnect the vpn, it may reset whenever you close or open the computer instead of being paused.

Overall: It has helped us by letting us connect in an easy way wherever we are to continue our job.

It is very easy to connect to the office VPN remotely using Connect secure.

Pros: 1. I like the ease in connecting to office VPN using this app. All I need to click on its icon and connect to the gateway I wish to use. Give the username and token code [ generated on RSA app on smartphone]. It will connect me to the VPN within few seconds.

2. I can check the connectivity easily, by seeing the green colour status of the arrow on its icon at the bottom of the screen.

3. I have not observed hanging of app or forcibly killing the session till now

Cons: When I right click the connect secure icon and open the first tab of "Open pulse secure. All the gateways are listed there. Expanding any of them using arrow button, opens the detail but with noticeably shaking of the GUI. It happens to all whether the gateway is connected or disconnected state.

2. I did not like the help page. Both the content as well as its font, formatting etc looks obsolete

Overall: I can connect to office VPN very easily

Overall: It has enabled me to work remotely for a company based in NY while I'm in CA.

Pros: It allows us to connect to our company's network when we are at home or on the road. Connection is usually quick and easy.

Cons: Confusing to use if it hasn't been set up by your IT team previously. Often will want to auto-connect whenever I connect to any wi-fi connection. Sometimes, however I'm only using my laptop for non-work use and don't need it to automatically connect.

Overall: This software has opened up tons of possibilities for our company. Now we can work from home and still have access to the company network, files, and emails with minimal connection speed difference. It allows users to still do their work while sick, but not come in and spread germs to other employees.
