Amherst, NH – November 19, 2012
PistolStar, Inc. dba PortalGuard is pleased to announce the newest release of one of the industry’s most complete and affordable authentication software platforms: PortalGuard.
“We are very pleased to announce the newest release of this product,” said Tom Hoey, CEO of PistolStar, who has been developing authentication software solutions for businesses since 1999. PortalGuard is a five layer authentication platform that is designed to provide companies, no matter what their size or industry, a strong foundation of authentication. This is a web-based platform that delivers five unique and complimentary authentication layers and is designed to deliver a multifaceted approach to application security. PortalGuard provides two-factor authentication, transparent user authentication, self-service password management, single sign-on, and password synchronization functionality all in one encompassing package.
“Our goal with this authentication platform was threefold: The first was to offer companies and developers a platform that offered multiple layers of protection balanced with usability, second, was to be able to provide all this functionality at a very affordable price point, and third, as an authentication platform poised for the expanding cloud-delivered software as a service (SaaS) market. Our belief is that no matter what the size of your company you should be able to use it efficiently, effectively, and affordably.”
“We strongly believe these five layers provide the foundation for a robust authentication platform,” Hoey continued, “and we’re offering the entire platform for $7,500 USD per installation which also includes a 90 day money back guarantee. At this price point we are committed to providing the highest level of customer support and service. We employ dedicated technical resources to provide customer service before, during, and after the sale.”
“The authentication platform is fully configurable and is built using standards based languages and protocols. PortalGuard is completely scalable and designed to run ‘out-of-the-box’ on a company’s existing hardware, and also includes an API which allows developers to tightly integrate its authentication layers into existing applications.”
Today’s companies, no matter how large or small face ever increasing challenges with regards to their data security and usability. As hacking, phishing, and man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks become more sophisticated, having a non-disruptive robust authentication platform is no longer a luxury but a necessity.
“It also became very clear to us that the market is not offering both usability and security at this price point in an all-inclusive solution.”
A trial version of PortalGuard is available. For details, please visit the company website (www.portalguard.com).
PortalGuard is a Contextual Authentication platform that provides a balance between usability and security. Contextual Authentication analyzes real-time events surrounding a user’s authentication request, such as the time, device, location, network and application, and adjusts the authentication or self-service password reset method dynamically based on those events. In addition, PortalGuard offers feature rich password management and self-service password reset for both the web and desktop, including “side-car” mode for retrofitting existing applications.
