PistolStar, Inc., developer of the PortalGuard all-in-one authentication extension, is recognized again for its best in class functionality and outstanding value. With PortalGuard, users experience the convergence of single sign-on with self-service MFA methods.

Today, PistolStar Inc., is pleased to announce that it has been recognized by two different leading trade journals (SC Magazine and Network World) regarding the performance, support and value of its flagship authentication platform, PortalGuard.

PortalGuard is an all-in-one authentication extension that easily enables web-based single sign-on, two-factor authentication, and self-service password management. PortalGuard reduces expense associated with everyday user logins, and relieves the pain that users endure when forgetting or managing different passwords for multiple applications.

After rigorous real-world testing, SC Magazine awarded PortalGuard a Five Star rating noting its overall ease of installation and configuration along with its detailed documentation and solid performance. Tom Hoey, PistolStar’s CEO was very pleased by what the evaluators had to say regarding the overall performance and value that PortalGuard provides: “this is the second consecutive year that our solution has received their highest rating and it validates our efforts in providing our clients a product that is robust and well designed.”

In a separate review conducted by Network World Magazine, PortalGuard was compared to eight other two-factor authentication solutions and earned the following praise from the comparison articles author David Strom: “PortalGuard: The best of single sign-on and multi-factor authentication”.

Hoey went on to say: “For us, this validates what we have always believed about our product; that it’s a well thought out and executed solution that delivers tremendous security and usability value to our clients. Our development team continues to add features that are important to our customers, while our support staff continues to focus on making sure that our customer’s needs are always the highest priority.”

PortalGuard also provides flexible integration with a fully customizable and responsive user interface. Customers are able to brand any aspect of the software to reduce end-user training or confusion within the environment. The close adherence to industry standards such as ODBC, LDAP, SAML, WS-Fed, CAS and Shibboleth, means that PortalGuard easily integrates with both current and future products. Longevity is a proactive measure that PortalGuard implements from its inception. PortalGuard provides a long-lasting solution that is end-user friendly and fiscally sensible for any industry.
