Google’s mission is to organize the world‘s information and make it universally accessible and useful.

Since our founding in 1998, Google has grown by leaps and bounds. From offering search in a single language we now offer dozens of products and services—including various forms of advertising and web applications for all kinds of tasks—in scores of languages. And starting from two computer science students in a university dorm room, we now have thousands of employees and offices around the world. A lot has changed since the first Google search engine appeared. But some things haven’t changed: our dedication to our users and our belief in the possibilities of the Internet itself.

Pulse SDP is a Zero Trust secure access architecture for today’s modern application infrastructure. It enables direct, secure access to individual applications and requires users and their devices to be verified before access is allowed. The result is an enhanced security profile, better device compliance, and an improved user experience while defending against modern security threats and lateral malware spread.
