PortSys expands RDP support to Mac and Windows in Total Access Control

Upgrade applies security for remote users based on context of access

MARLBOROUGH, MA – March 5, 2017PortSys®, a global innovator in information security and access control for the enterprise, today announced that it is expanding Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) support to Mac and Windows customers using Total Access Control™ (TAC).

TAC provides a virtually unlimited combination of granular security controls for most remote applications on the market today, now including RDP. It seamlessly aligns device disposition and intelligence on the user’s context of access with an organization’s security policies, providing sophisticated access controls around the use of RDP.

TAC’s ability to define each specific RDP session with individual security parameters allows IT security administrators to gain tighter control over each remote desktop session. For instance, it could restrict a user who does not meet all the security policies from establishing an RDP session, or use security policies to restrict functions such as printing, downloading of files, or the clipboard to protect enterprise resources.

“TAC provides secure RDP on any device, while making it easier for end users who use the Single Sign On feature of TAC to avoid the complexity of most RDP environments,” said Michael Oldham, CEO of PortSys. “TAC gives our customers a consistent authentication process for all of their applications, local, cloud and now RDP. It also allows them to establish different security policies for different sessions, using the context of access, to control who gets access under different circumstances.”

TAC makes security simpler, stronger and more unified, offering customers an all-inclusive approach to secure access to valuable resources wherever they may reside, local or cloud. TAC brings together multiple security and access technologies – including VPN, SSL/VPN, SSO, Portal, Multifactor Authentication, MDM, Application Firewall, Cloud Access Control and more – into a single, scalable solution that manages access across the enterprise.
