Pulse Secure Application Delivery Business Records Record Growth

Pulse Secure has announced that its virtual Application Delivery Controller (virtual ADC) business unit has achieved record growth and increased market share in the last year. The announcement marks the one-year anniversary since Pulse’s acquisition of the virtual ADC Business Unit from Brocade Communications.

Factors driving the company’s success are the increased worldwide demand for online content and web services, and rapidly evolving infrastructure requirements including cloud and hybrid IT growth, DevOps, containerization/Docker and workload migration.

2018 highlights testifying to Pulse Secure’s virtual ADC market success include:

  • Average deal size more than double historical averages
  • 25% increase in revenues since product line acquisition from Brocade Communications
  • More six-figure deals than any other time in virtual ADC’s history
  • Double-digit growth in user participation within Pulse Secure Community
  • Solid partner execution, as validated by the company’s Connect Now partner program, receiving CRN’s Five-Star award

Significantly contributing to the unit’s growth in the last year, and the years ahead, is the opportunity to sell integrated solutions to existing Pulse Secure clients including 80 percent of the Fortune 500 and some 22,000 other companies. These organizations, including the world’s largest enterprises, are attracted by a unified solution that combines secure access from any device to any system, proven capabilities to deliver applications with high performance and system-wide tools to manage their infrastructure efficiently for both security and performance.

The outlook is bright given these trends, the investments made by Pulse Secure in people, products and the platform and the proven accomplishments of the virtual ADC team. In the last year, the company:

  • Introduced virtual ADC products on Google cloud, accelerating enterprise cloud adoption with deployment flexibility and the capability to deliver mission-critical applications in a highly secure and reliable manner
  • Extended virtual ADC integration with cloud technologies including support for: Amazon AWS GovCoud for federal cloud applications; Docker containers, Terraform, Service Discovery and DevOps tools; and intuitive graphical analytics of end-to-end traffic flows
  • Published tools and documentation to support the deployment of Pulse virtual ADC, with Pulse Connect Secure and Pulse Policy Secure, for closer integration with Pulse VPN and NAC solutions

Global partners play an essential role in the growth of Pulse Secure’s Virtual Application Delivery Controller. An outstanding example is Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., who uses virtual ADC technology for the reliability, security and optimal delivery it provides for Hitachi’s Data Intelligence solutions.

Another outstanding example is SCSK Corporation, an APAC partner, who distributes Pulse Secure virtual ADC to many cloud service providers who offer these services to their customers and charge based on monthly usage in Japan.

Pulse Secure virtual ADC business results show that the company is outpacing market growth with its new acquisition and continuing to expand the product and partner capabilities in ways that extend their business reach and attract new customers.

Pulse Secure virtual ADC completes the company’s broad customer offering with secure access to deliver customer solutions for data center applications from the web, cloud and mobile networks, while providing an end-to-end solution designed to reduce cost and complexity, increase security and enhance user experience.
