This is compounds as many users take measures themselves to find better ways to increase their own productivity by using the many different productivity solutions that is currently out in the market.
Many users are also shifting into the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend as many are find it more convenient than Internet of Things (IoT) devices. This causes a decrease in IT visibility as they cannot ensure that said devices are compliant to the security policies, giving more attack surfaces for cyber criminals to exploit.
PulseSecure solutions can help your organization address these problems with their secure access solutions, namely Pulse Connect Secure and Pulse Policy Secure.

Securing IoT devices in the IT environment
With Pulse Policy Secure, you will be able to discover managed and unmanaged devices and profile them to specific access policies. This lessens the risks of having malicious threats moving laterally through your network and makes sure that compliance is being followed.
Preventing unauthorized access from BYOD devices
Be able to provide guest users with a self-service portal with a customizable interface which is highly scalable for enterprise use. Employee devices can also quickly connect to the network securely with self-service onboarding, lessening the need for IT intervention.
