The kind of technological transformation witnessed in today’s business environment point to innovation aimed at flexibility.
Features of the PortalGuard Identity as a Service platform
Remote access authentication
Controlling who has access to which applications and data is becoming increasingly difficult when access expands outside your company’s four walls. The transition to a remote workforce is here to stay, and cybercriminals will have a new attack surface to target as a result.

Consolidation of several passwords
More passwords are necessary as we move to the cloud and connect with consumers and employees online. Every new application, for example, may require a new login and password. In most firms, preventing user complaints about having to remember several passwords is a goal.
Great User experience
The events of this decade have resulted in significant behavioral changes. This accelerates the transition to the new normal. Customer, as well as Employee interactions, are becoming increasingly remote, mobile, virtual, and asynchronous. The digital user experience will become a major factor as to when a customer purchases a product? Frequently, security objectives are set that must be met. These specifications will obstruct the delivery of the ideal customer experience.
Reduce operational expenses
Most IT departments are underfunded, overburdened, and lack dedicated cybersecurity personnel. Because of the quick changes required to combat cyber threats and adopt the new systems your company requires, security issues, principles, and tactics are frequently pushed to the bottom of the priority list. Identity as a Service automates most of this cybersecurity and IT security functions reducing the need to deploy more IT staff.
Compliance with industry regulators
Industry regulators have put in place standards to prevent cyber risk and assure data privacy. Achieving compliance with a variety of demanding requirements is frequently a top priority and a legal requirement. While legislation like HIPAA, GLBA, GDPR, and FERPA continue to raise the security bar, it becomes increasingly difficult to avoid compromising the user experience.
