Download and Install

Go to the ECS download page,  which requires authentication with your HawkID & password. Select the file PulseSecure-Mac.dmg and save it to a file on your Mac.

After the download completes, double click on the PulseSecure-Mac.dmg file. It opens a virtual disk containing an installer called "PulseSecure.pkg". Double-click on that installer and follow the instructions.

When the installation is complete, you will have Pulse Secure in your Applications folder and a Secure icon in your menu-bar. You can delete the installer and the .dmg file.


Launch the Junos PulseSecure application. It opens a small window which has a box at the top titled "Sign in at:" that looks like a web browser location bar. In that box enter and press the Connect button. You will next see a VPN login window.

Login with your HawkID and password. You should get connected to the VPN, changing to an active session window telling you that you are connected to with a session timer and a Sign out button. You need to leave Junos Pulse active during the time you're connected, but you can minimize it to get it off your desktop.

Sign out

When you're done with your session and have closed out any active shares, RDP sessions, etc., press the Disconnect button in the Junos Pulse application.
