Whether an organization has a simple LAMP stack, an Apache-based web site, or a series of web applications that utilize Apache Tomcat, granular integration is not only expected, but necessary. PortalGuard enables you to keep your existing Apache implementation in place, while deploying an effective authentication package to increase end-user usability, improve authentication security, and remove end-user reliance on local IT Resources.
Primary integration points include:
Regardless of your implementation of Apache, it is integral to find a strong balance between security and usability for administrators and end-users alike. To achieve that balance, the PortalGuard IdP implements Single Sign-On through the Security Assertion Markup Language Protocol (SAML), alongside multiple 2FA features and granular password management.
By utilizing the industry standard SAML protocol, PortalGuard provides users with streamlined access to Apache, Tomcat, and/or various web applications running on the Apache web server with a single set of credentials.
Alongside SSO, PortalGuard provides support for over twelve different OTP delivery options to enable secure authentication that fits within your environment. All 2FA options and authentication security requirements are fully configurable down to the ACL on the individual Organizational Unit (OU), and scale to accommodate organizations with both high and low end-user counts.
The PortalGuard IdP also provides granular password management capabilities to enable Password Reset, Password Recovery, and Account Unlock for end-users. By enabling end-users to manage their own passwords, PortalGuard further reduces reliance on local IT resources and enables end-users to get back to work quickly and efficiently. Additionally, PortalGuard's configurable nature allows for adherence to both internal and external compliance requirements with little to no extra hassle.
The PortalGuard Integrated Authentication Package for Apache improves both usability and security without sacrificing either.
