CISA adds Total Access Control to Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Approved Products List

MARLBOROUGH, MAMarch 23, 2022  The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) today approved the addition of Total Access Control™ (TAC) from PortSys to its Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Approved Products List (CDM-APL).​​

CISA leads the national effort across the U.S. to defend critical infrastructure against the threats of today, while working with partners across all levels of government and in the private sector to secure against the evolving risks of tomorrow. CISA conducted an extensive review of TAC’s technical capabilities as well as its alignment with the mission and objectives outlined in the CDM program before granting approval.

TAC combines multiple technologies together into a single Zero Trust solution for enterprise organizations in the public and private sectors to provide centralized control over access to local and cloud resources, from any device in any location.

The CDM Program provides cybersecurity tools, integration services and dashboards for critical infrastructure to support government agencies in improving their security posture. The program’s objectives are to:

Reduce the threat surface for government agencies
Increase visibility across the Federal cybersecurity posture
Improve Federal cybersecurity response capabilities
Streamline Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA) reporting

PortSys currently deploys TAC in government agencies as well as public and private institutions across the U.S., Canada, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. TAC provides increased security, a simpler user experience, and easy deployment of the Zero Trust approach required by President Biden’s recent Executive Order within their existing infrastructure.

This is just the latest validation of the critical role Total Access Control plays in protectinggovernment agencies against the constantly evolving threats they face,” said Michael Oldham, PortSys CEO. “We are excited to continue to work with government organizations and their systems integrators to strengthen the security posture of their critical infrastructure.”

PortSys also was given the Cyber Essentials Certificate of Assurance from the U.K.’s IASME Consortium, which is responsible for administering the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) Cyber Essentials Scheme.
