PortSys Receives ISAserver.org Gold Award for Unified Access Gateway

MARLBOROUGH, MA – 17 July 2013 – PortSys, Inc. (www.portsys.com), global provider of secure access control technologies, announced today that it received the Gold Award from ISAserver.org for its Unified Access Gateway.

The PortSys Unified Access Gateway leverages the full power of Microsoft’s UAG to provide secure access to almost any resource within the enterprise, while allowing administrators to change, limit or forbid access to specific resources based on the location, device or security level of  the remote user.  Based on his product review of the PortSys UAG appliance and Total Access Control suite of products, Brien Posey reports, “In my opinion, there are two main factors that would justify the purchase of this appliance. The most important of these factors is the proprietary software that PortSys has installed.” Posey continues, “PortSys has created a number of different built-in applications that are designed to augment Microsoft UAG.”

The combination of PortSys’ decision to build on solid HP hardware, and its intuitive suite of enhancements to the Forefront technology, move PortSys to the front of the pack when it comes to today’s cluttered field of BYOD security players.

Michael Oldham, CEO of PortSys, reacts to the Award: “It has been our objective to create security solutions that provide unparalleled protection while providing significant business advantage to our customers. Receiving recognition for our entire suite of products is particularly rewarding for our team.”

The PortSys Total Access Control suite of products (TAC) includes:

• TAC Gateway – Provides access control, strong authentication and device validation
• Application Connector – Single Sign-On and traffic whitelisting for locally based applications
• Ballista – Server side application accelerator
• Portal Branding – Provides an easy to use, customized portal experience for users
• SafeRoom – Manage untrusted PCs and block out malware and keyloggers
• SafeLogin – Picture-based multi-factor authentication for any device including smartphones
