PortalGuard integrates with Duo Security’s “push” technology to enhance available OTP methods

PistolStar, Inc. flagship product PortalGuard has been updated to version 5.8 and will become available June 2018. The latest version is fully integrated with Duo Security’s Duo Push technology and makes Two-Factor Authentication even easier and more secure with out-of-band communication. After entering your username and password with PortalGuard, a notification is sent to your smartphone via the Duo App, where you can verify an authorization request with a simple tapping of “approve”. PortalGuard remains flexible with other OTP methods including Google Authenticator, Email, Pattern Based authentication, and many others.

Don Sloat, Director of Technical Services at Delaware County Community College, explained the benefits of this new addition to PortalGuard. “We have used PortalGuard for web-based SSO with great success and are looking forward to extending multi-factor authentication for all students, faculty and staff, to further secure our environment. Having integrated support for Duo Security’s Duo Push technology will help ease this deployment and make 2FA less onerous for legitimate end-users.”

This additional option for Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) adds yet even greater value to the consistently acclaimed PortalGuard, which also provides Single Sign-On (SSO), Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR), customizable branding, and over 120 other features to ensure that each campus is equipped with the tools needed to face any authentication challenge.
