PortSys Announces the BPOS Connector for UAG

Marlborough, Mass.—July 11, 2011—– PortSys, Inc., a global partner with Microsoft™ and HP™ (www.portsys.com) today announced the BPOS Connector for UAG. The BPOS Connector for UAG allows organizations to control access to Microsoft’s Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS) through their PortSys UAG appliances or software versions of Microsoft’s Unified Access Gateway. Availability is immediate and will be available through PortSys and their channel partners internationally.

“Today, enterprises are faces with the challenge of maintaining control over access to key business resources,” said PortSys CEO Michael Oldham. “As more organizations embrace Cloud-based services such as Microsoft’s BPOS, they are losing control over access to key business resources. User accounts and passwords are under the control of the service provider, not the organization and users connect to these services directly. Control is no longer in the hands of the people required to protect this information. The BPOS Connector for UAG gives back control to the organization.”

The BPOS Connector for UAG brings centralized access control and single-sign on capabilities to organizations using Microsoft’s BPOS and UAG gateways for secure access. The BPOS connector transparently manages the log in process to BPOS on behalf of the end-user. The end-user only needs to authenticate once when signing into the UAG Portal. After that, credentials for BPOS are automatically handled for the end-user. This also provides a significant advantage for organizations because all access to the BPOS service are controlled through the UAG. This provides a full audit trail of who accessed what and when.

“The BPOS Connector is one part of a many-part offering that makes the PortSys UAG appliances a centralized access control device for all an organization’s information resources,” said PortSys CEO, Michael Oldham. “By securely publishing all access through our gateways we can provide organizations with centralized access control for all of their resources regardless whether they reside in the local datacenter, a public cloud or a private cloud. And, we simplify the process for end-users with a dynamic portal experience and Single Sign-On for applications published through our gateways.”
