Total Access Control adds Enhanced Security for Android devices

Marlborough, Mass. April 4, 2016. PortSys announces the addition of Enhanced Security for Android devices for the Total Access Control product.

PortSys, Inc. has made available Enhanced Android device support as part of device management for the Total Access Control product. TAC enhances mobility and provides a unified access experience that secures access to corporate resources regardless of where they reside (local or cloud).

The addition of Enhanced Android device management allows organizations full control over Android-based devices and provides additional MDM-style features to the Total Access Control product specifically for the Android platform. TAC scales to manage access for hundreds of thousands of mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and more. TAC now gains the optional ability to create a device approval process for all Android-based devices which requires that each be approved by an administrator before that device is allowed to access corporate information.

“Android devices are the most popular mobile devices in the world. TAC now provides enhanced security features for Android devices. The TAC device approval process now extends to Android devices to create robust authentication that allows you to require three full factors of authentication for end-users before allowing access. Now, a user’s credentials are combined with multi-factor authentication as well as a specifically approved device, before allowing access to valuable corporate resources. All of this is done while making the sign-on process easier for the end user,” said Michael Oldham, CEO for PortSys.

In addition to the device approval process, you can also enforce device behavior and requirements such as restricting access based on device operating system, patch level or even requiring the presence of an anti-virus running on the device.

The feature improvements are included as part of the Total Access Control solution at no additional cost and is available immediately.
