Impulse is an innovative security company addressing the challenges of data breaches stemming from network access and endpoint devices. With the exponential growth on the number and types of devices accessing an organization’s network and systems, network security has become essential across all industries.
Impulse has been helping companies address the challenges of network access control for BYOD, IoT, and Guest Devices since 2004, enabling regulatory compliance, consistent authentication, and an intuitive end-user experience.
Helping organizations keep their networks secure and available for those permitted to use them, Impulse prevents access to those who are not. This not only ensures that the network is available when needed, but also that the organization’s data is protected, and that end-users’ devices are not compromised. Impulse’s flagship product, SafeConnect enables complete visibility, security, and control for the myriad of devices attaching to an organization’s network, while providing the flexibility to adhere to each organization’s unique computing policy philosophies.
Impulse continues to stay at the forefront of emerging technologies with the introduction of SafeConnect Software Defined Perimeter (SDP). While the Internet is a marvelous achievement in its ability to share information instantaneously across the globe, it is that same openness and collaborative nature of the Internet that now represents its most challenging impediment to continued growth and sustainability – security. Today, people access applications from anywhere (office, home or other remote locations) to anywhere (data center, co-lo, cloud or SaaS), which means the traditional definition of a Network Perimeter is going away. Impulse, through SafeConnect SDP is helping customers secure their New Perimeter by ‘hiding’ enterprise application and data resources from the Internet, and adhering to a ‘verify first, connect second’, Zero-Trust access model, as compared to today’s ‘connect first, authenticate second’ approach. A key component of SDP entails rendering an organization’s critical IT infrastructure “invisible” or “dark.” After all, you can’t hack what you can’t see.
