PortSys extends support to OAuth2 for Authentication in Total Access Control

TAC now supports access authentication for majority of cloud applications

MARLBOROUGH, MA – July 16, 2018PortSys®, a global innovator in information security and access control for the enterprise, today announced that it now provides support to Total Access Control™ (TAC) customers using OAuth2 for authenticating access to cloud applications.

OAuth2 is used by many organizations, especially in education, for authentication to critical cloud applications. With this latest announcement, TAC now supports authentication for most cloud applications available on the market today.

OAuth2 provides TAC users secure delegated access to resources in the cloud on behalf of a centrally managed repository. TAC enables enterprise organizations to authorize third-party resources without revealing user credentials to the cloud.

While confirmed trusted users can log in with their username through the TAC portal, TAC can also use security policies based on context of access to confirm untrusted users logging in from unknown devices or locations, or even during suspicious times. TAC will then prompt those untrusted requestors to first complete additional factors of authentication before granting access to the organization’s cloud applications.

“This is just the latest example of how TAC makes security simpler, stronger and more unified across the enterprise,” Michael Oldham, CEO of PortSys, said. “TAC now offers customers the most comprehensive access authorization engine available today for the cloud. The addition of support for OAuth2 further extends TAC’s ability to provide secure access to valuable enterprise 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.

PortSys customers span the globe across many industries, including finance, government, defense, utilities, healthcare, education, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), construction, and other market segments where secure access to enterprise information is vital.
