Pulse Secure Client 9.0.4 in MAC OS Mojave Crashes while trying to connect to Juniper SRX345


Pulse Secure Client 9.0.4 in MAC OS Mojave Crashes while trying to connect to Juniper SRX345

We are finding issues with connecting Juniper SRX345 (firewall) using Pulse Secure 9.0.4 Client in MAC Mojave(10.14.6).

Our engineering LAB VPN is setup using Juniper SRX firewall and we connect this using Pulse Secure Client. But when we use MAC Book (Mojave) with Pulse Secure 9.0.4 client it is crashing continuously and we are unable to connect to the LAB VPN.

I have contacted the Juniper support and according to them they will support to only till 'Pulse Secure' 5.1 version. For anything above 5.1, we need to contact Pulse Secure as they manage this client now.
This problem is only with MAC Pulse Secure 9.0.4 version. Same version Windows Pulse Secure client we are able to connect with Juniper SRX and there is no issue!

Pulse secure version:- 9.0.4
Juniper SRX345(Firewall)
Junos :- 15.1X49-D150-2
MAC OS Mojave :- 10.14.6
