Please let us know the difference between Pulse secure SSL VPN and UAC. Although, both the devices have common features, why we need a separate device for SSL VPN and UAC? I tried to find out but i missed to find specific information.

Hi Santro, SSL VPN(just like a common VPN) will provide you a secure tunnel connection by using Web browser only at the client side. While the main function of UAC is to limit access to a network resource to user level. Generally firewalls control traffic based upon the source & destination addresses or port numbers. But any body can access a resource from the permitted network. UAC adds a new dimension to this by adding user level intelligence to this control. So the UAC will check the logic that which user can access which resource. Hope this helps.
