BIO-key Enhances PortalGuard IDaaS Admin Panel to Better Serve MSPs and MSSPs

“Single pane of glass” interface aggregates data and visualizations across multiple customers and instances.

WALL, N.J., June 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BIO-key International, Inc. (NASDAQ: BKYI), an innovative provider of workforce and customer identity and access management (IAM) solutions featuring Identity-Bound Biometrics (IBB), today announced a significant update to the Admin Panel of PortalGuard® IDaaS (Identity-as-a-Service) – a unified IAM platform that provides cutting-edge solutions to a range of use cases and business initiatives. This update provides enhanced support for MSPs (Managed Services Providers) and MSSPs (Managed Security Services Providers) to enhance their authentication and operational efficiency, enabling the best service possible for their customers.

“The PortalGuard IDaaS Admin Panel provides a simple administrator experience to efficiently manage users, control SSO integrations, configure security policies and more, all in one place,” said Gregg Browinski, VP of Engineering, BIO-key – PortalGuard. “We believe our updated ‘single pane of glass’ approach will support MSPs and MSSPs to take major strides in their cybersecurity – like implementing a zero-trust model or passwordless authentication within the Platform.”

The enhanced PortalGuard IDaaS Admin Panel should enable admins and IT users within MSPs and MSSPs to save time, reduce costs, and get the most out of their resources in three core areas:

Workflow Efficiency: manage all associated organizations from one consolidated interface, optimizing resource usage and operational efficiency.

  • Available from anywhere – can be accessed from any web browser on any device, desktop or mobile, and remote access.
  • Enhanced Admin Panel allows MSPs and MSSPs to put resources where they matter most, waste less time managing infrastructure, and reduce overall downtime.

Use Case Flexibility: experience unparalleled flexibility across the entire organization and a centrally configured deployment point.

  • Granular insight into organizations’ departments and respective usage (e.g., Human Resources department using tokens).
  • View and modify each organizational configuration from a single login point.
  • Reduced downtime response and quick identification of potential issues.

Resource & Cost Management: manage license usage and organizational subsidiary projects to manage and determine deployment costs accurately.

  • Monitor customer usage metrics with the capability to filter data by customer(s), date range, and time unit (daily or monthly).
  • Tailor licenses according to specific projects/usage.
  • Allowance of internal monetization of global licenses promotes greater revenue by enabling subsidiaries to determine their costs.

Mark Cochran, President of BIO-key PortalGuard, concluded, “with PortalGuard, organizations can enjoy better authentication flexibility, an enhanced user experience, and lower total cost of ownership. BIO-key is confident that these upgrades to the core features and capabilities of its PortalGuard IDaaS are difference-makers for the platform, making it a premier product to support MSPs and MSSPs.”
