BIO-key’s PortalGuard IAM solution deployed by college in New Mexico
BIO-key will be deploying its PortalGuard Identity and Access Management solution at San Juan College in New Mexico, the company announced on Wednesday.
PortalGuard replaces a freely available IAM platform, which the college discovered was not easy to configure and did not support all Single Sign-On (SSO) required protocols.
The BIO-key’s software will be utilized as the College’s only identity and access management (IAM) solution, allowing users to access various enterprise applications.
San Juan College will also deploy PortalGuard’s Self-Service Password Management and Multi-Factor Authentication capabilities, which include voice and face biometrics-based login options.
“PortalGuard’s minimal customization requirements and streamlined licensing model can save organizations significant resources and deliver quick time to value,” states PortalGuard President Mark Cochran. “There are times when a free solution is not exactly free, and cybersecurity is not an area to shortcut. PortalGuard is well known for its simplicity and ease of use, providing frictionless SSO, secure two-factor authentication options, and self-service capabilities. The rapid growth in our customer base demonstrates that we deliver what organizations require to address today’s threats with rapid deployment, scalability, and on-demand access to security expertise.”
The biometrics-powered IAM solutions firm has completed a number of acquisitions throughout the years. Since it has purchased PortalGuard, the company has pushed towards the expansion in new markets.
More recently, BIO-key has announced a new partnership with the U.S. Government Services Agency (GSA) to provide it with two-factor authentication, including biometrics.
