BIO-key Launches Enhanced Admin Panel and User Experience for IT Teams Managing its PortalGuard Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) Solution
BIO-key International, Inc., an innovative provider of Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Identity-Bound Biometric (IBB) solutions, today introduced the next generation of its PortalGuard® Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) platform Admin Panel experience to enhance the ability of IT teams to manage and upgrade their IAM strategies. The improved PortalGuard IDaaS Admin Panel provides a simple, centralized interface for common IAM workflows and management of the platform that eliminates inefficiencies and delivers time savings for busy IT teams.
Today, IT teams are focused on keeping their organization safe while ensuring that their technology can support employees, customers, and suppliers to get to the resources they need. An increase in cyber risk and the dynamics of the pandemic, including the shift to remote work, have put pressure on IT teams to improve their IAM strategies, with many moving to more advanced approaches, including a Zero Trust architecture, which requires more granular security controls and oversight. Yet in a recent Osterman Research survey on “Why Zero Trust is Important,” 48% of organizations cite obtaining the appropriate resources to do Zero Trust properly as a barrier for embracing it.

Resource limitations are a common challenge as most IT teams face limited budgets and staff, with 61% of cybersecurity professionals saying their teams are understaffed. A major pain point for IT teams often comes from supporting IAM strategies with multiple point solutions that are difficult to integrate, configure, and manage. Further, as these solutions rely on varying sets of overlapping security policies that, without a holistic perspective, create vulnerabilities across the organization.
BIO-key’s PortalGuard IDaaS, with its newly enhanced admin panel, solves this problem by replacing end point solutions with one, cohesive IAM platform that is both more secure and easier to configure and manage. PortalGuard is a cost effective solution that enables IT teams to be more effective and productive.
Mark Cochran, President of BIO-key – PortalGuard added, “With limited IT resources and the significant gap in available cybersecurity talent across all industries, most organizations are struggling to figure out how to do more with less. The inspiration for the next generation of our admin experience was consistent customer feedback seeking solutions that are easy to manage, flexible, efficient, and can empower the IT team.”
