PortalGuard for Microsoft IIS

A Fully Integrated Authentication Package for IIS

The Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) server is a top choice among many organizations looking for an extensible web server with the backing of a strong name. With its wide array of authentication mechanisms, IIS is often the base for a larger infrastructure of websites, applications, and services both in the cloud and on-premises.

As an integral part of an internal and externally facing infrastructure, it is important to provide secure, convenient access to IIS and associated services. PortalGuard is designed to run on and integrate directly with IIS in order to enhance all existing authentication scenarios, and reduce the strain that standard IIS implementations can place on local IT resources.

PortalGuard’s effective authentication package serves to improve usability, enhance authentication security, and remove end-user reliance on local IT Resources, all while enhancing and expanding upon the native features of IIS.

Primary integration points include:

  • Single Sign-On to Various Web Apps

Improving Security and Usability without Breaking the Bank

SSO, 2FA, and Password Management

No matter how Microsoft IIS is being utilized in your environment, finding a strong balance between security and usability has never been more important. In order to achieve that balance and provide the best experience for end-users and administrators alike, the PortalGuard IdP implements Single Sign-On alongside multiple 2FA features and granular password management.

By utilizing industry standard protocols such as SAML, CAS, Shibboleth, WS-Fed, and Kerberos, PortalGuard provides users and administrators with streamlined access to all of your integrated websites and applications – all with a single set of credentials.

PortalGuard also provides the convenience and security of over 12 different delivery options of One-Time Passwords for Two-Factor Authentication. Security requirements are completely configurable down to the individual Organizational Unit of your user database, and can be adjusted to meet the unique requirements of your environment.

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.
