Using Pulse Connect Host Checker to Protect from Threats
The Host Checker feature in Pulse Connect Secure protects the PCS against viruses, attacks, and other security concerns. Host Checker performs security checks on the clients that connect to the device.
Host Checker can:
- Verify if the end-user system contains up-to-date antivirus software, firewalls, critical software hotfixes, and other applications that protect your users’ computers.
- Enable or deny users' access to the PCS’s sign-in pages, realms, roles, and resources based on the results that Host Checker returns. Alternatively, you can display the recovery instructions to users, so they can bring their computers into compliance.
- Secure your network from hostile outside intrusion by integrating your device with a Juniper Networks Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDP) sensor. You can use IDP devices to detect and block most network worms based on software vulnerabilities, non-file-based Trojan horses, the effects of Spyware, Adware, and Key Loggers, many types of malware, and zero day attacks through the use of anomaly detection.
