Organizations may utilize WebSphere in a variety of configurations that include on premises or in a public, private, or even hybrid cloud model. PortalGuard enables you to keep your existing infrastructure 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:
PortalGuard acts as an Identity Provider (IdP) to provide secure Single Sign-On using the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) protocol. By utilizing this industry standard protocol, PortalGuard provides users with streamlined access to WebSphere and associated applications using only a single set of credentials.
Alongside SAML integration for SSO, PortalGuard provides administrators with detailed control over access management to the WebSphere application server, web sites, and applications. ACL bindings are configurable down to 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 WebSphere improves both usability and security without sacrificing either.
