QS solutions delivers security solutions that enable companies to work together with third-party companies by leveraging Microsoft-based products. The services offered by QS solutions include deploying Microsoft Azure Active Directory with a single login identity for both on-premises and cloud applications and implementing Azure Rights Management for document encryption. The firm also deploys Microsoft Intune, a product that gives end-users secure access to work-related applications on their personal mobile devices. Implementation services for Office 365, SharePoint, and Dynamics CRM completes the QS solutions portfolio. Using Office 365 and Microsoft’s innovative identity and access management controls, QS solutions allows the IT department to retain the control they want, while the users get the flexibility and functionality they need.
PortalTalk, the company’s flagship product, is aimed at providing selfservice functionality to business users for complex security issues where, in the past, the IT department would have been involved, like when providing third-party access to SharePoint sites in a quick and safe manner. In this scenario, PortalTalk is deployed on top of an Azure Active Directory and integrated with SharePoint Online or on-premises.Authorized business users can then invite third parties to collaborate in a SharePoint site using a simple workflow. Access is granted using the third parties own credentials (email address and password). PortalTalk provides extra governance by requiring the Business User to confirm the third parties access at regular intervals with failure to do so resulting in access being revoked.
To help clients with the implementation of PortalTalk, QS solutions has a team of implementation consultants and change-management experts to guide and train new clients until they are comfortable with the solutions implemented. “The fact that our products have a better level of integration with Microsoft solutions makes our implementations better and faster and this is the key reason that we are ahead of the competition,” says Dols with pride.
PortalTalk provides business users with the flexibility they need
For the future, Dols plans to boost user productivity through extending the self-service functionality of PortalTalk. QS solutions is also securing international-partner channels to increase the reach of PortalTalk. “We are looking for SharePoint implementation partners and Identity and Access Management consultancy agencies in the U.S., Scandinavia, UK and West Europe,” says Dols. “We plan to make PortalTalk an application that is a must-have in all collaborative IT networks.”
