Technology Nexus PortWise Review

Gives us full control over all authentication for any internal or external resource and a single-source audit trail

What is our primary use case?

We are required to have a complete audit trail. This produce helped us to accomplice this and fully manage any identities authorized by SAML, Certificates and Multi factor authentication.

How has it helped my organization?

We currently have full control over all authentication for any internal or external resource. We use Microsoft cloud for intranet, Skype, etc. All this is using HAG and SAML. Any other accounts are done automatically using your corporate badge.

What is most valuable?

The flexibility to have one single source for the whole audit trail. Security is normally a function of what you know. If no access will ever be granted without our having a log of it, that is a great start. 

Together with this comes the Authentication and Authorization for almost any standard. Certification with digital signatures both for desktop and in your mobile. Other MFA using tokens and other soft tokens. And don't forget OATH, SAML and OpenID. We also provide HTML 5 support with SSO for RDP, Telnet SSH, for example. This is on top of our reverse proxy with SSO.

What needs improvement?

The logical and physical space is of interest for government and schools. Why not have one single card for everything and administer all access in one place?

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No, not in a real deployment with datacenter's SLAs. The product is very mature and stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have personally seen almost 100K users concurrently in the system in the previous version. This version is even better.

What was our ROI?

We are in compliance of regulatory and certification requirements.
