Pulse Secure Browser is a browser with a built-in Layer 4 VPN that provides secure access to intranet resources.  This solution provides Layer 4 VPN functionality without the need for an MDM solution.  Pulse Secure browser is designed to work as a standalone browser and does not require installation of the Pulse Mobile for iOS client.

Alternatively, Layer 4 Per-App VPN can be achieved with Pulse Mobile for iOS with Pulse Workspace (PWS) or another MDM vendor.  For more instructions, please refer to  KB40328 - How to configure Per-App VPN for Pulse Mobile for iOS with Pulse Workspace and Pulse Connect Secure (PCS) device
