Access via QR Codes and traditional logins utilizing a username and password can now seamlessly co-exist under a single domain.
BEDFORD, N.H. (PRWEB) March 22, 2018
PistolStar, Inc. flagship product PortalGuard has been updated to version 220.127.116.11. and will become available May 2018. The latest version adds a simplified login solution for young students in grades K-5 by eliminating all typing of usernames and passwords. Students simply scan their unique QR code to begin learning with their favorite apps. PortalGuard is committed to streamlining the login process for students and educators worldwide. The new QR code feature reduces access issues by replacing the traditional username and password login. This creates more time for productivity and student success in the classroom. PortalGuard Lanyard Login can be easily managed by teachers, administrators, or school IT and integrate fully with Chromebook logins and G Suite.
Gregg Browinski, Chief Technology Officer at PistolStar, explained the benefits of this new addition to PortalGuard. “This new feature in PortalGuard makes it possible for a single login form to support both simplified logins via QR codes for young or impaired students and self-service password reset for older students that login with a username and password. Districts or schools under a single domain no longer need to compromise – both types of access and the associated self-service options now seamlessly co-exist.”
This QR code feature adds yet even greater value to the consistently acclaimed PortalGuard, which provides Single Sign-on (SSO), Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR), Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), customizable branding and over 120 other features to ensure that each campus is equipped with the tools needed to face any authentication challenge.
