Original Press Release:
PistolStar, Inc. Announces PortalGuard Version 6.0
PortalGuard v.6.0 modernizes the User Interface while keeping up to date with the latest in cybersecurity
BEDFORD, N.H. (PRWEB) AUGUST 07, 2018 - PistolStar, Inc. flagship product PortalGuard has been updated to version 6.0. Modernizing with a contemporary User Interface (UI), PortalGuard is making enhancements to both administrator and end-user usability without compromising security.
PortalGuard v6.0 upgrades administrator reporting to include 18x smaller data and 40x performance increase. Administrators integrating with Office 365 now have the option of IP Lockout. This new feature enables Password Spray prevention against hackers.
Expanding on PortalGuard’s Multi-Factor Authentication options, v6.0 now offers Application-Specific 2FA, also known as “Step-Up Authentication”. V6.0 introduces Contextual Authentication v2.0, now with a simplified “condition” model and addressing geolocation support.
For legacy or cloud-based web applications that do not support identity federation, the Authentication Proxy can be employed to enable Single Sign-On. This proxy centralizes, hosts, and vaults credentials creating a better experience for end-users. An SSO Jump Page can be used to show all logged in applications by the user in one place. End-users navigate directly to their desired website and initiate SSO from a dynamically created, fully brandable UI control. Allowing the option to alternate between multiple credentials for a single web app, the proxy is a server-side solution and does not require browser toolbars or client-side software. If desired, end-users can delete individual credentials for any web app being used. The proxy also offers Single Logout effectively logging the user out of all applications at once.
Gregg Browinski, Chief Technology Officer at PistolStar, explained the benefits of this new addition to PortalGuard. “We're excited to release version 6 of PortalGuard which further extends its Single Sign-On options by bringing non-federation capable websites into the fold and takes a big step forward in offering numerous cybersecurity features. PortalGuard continues to maintain a unique, fixed price cost structure that has proven so popular with both large and small organizations around the world. This is a great testament to our company’s dedication and ingenuity in the identity management space.”
PistolStar, Inc. is an innovator in cybersecurity access control. The proxy provides cybersecurity check notifications of weak commonly hacked passwords, fraudulent URL checking from phishing attacks, notifications of unwanted download types, and cloud app tracking and reporting. In addition, Version 6.0 supports Lanyard Login and integrates with Duo Security’s Duo Push Two-Factor Authentication technology.
