Calgary, ALBERTA, CANADA – PASSPORTAL HEAD OFFICE – November. 30, 2017 – Passportal today announced the 2.0 version of its innovative, automated, secure password reset technology, Passportal Blink™.

“Password reset tickets have been a costly reality for MSPs and represent both a security risk and source of frustrating downtime for their users, until now. Blink™ eliminates reset tickets for the MSP, while delivering a more secure and automated solution to their users. The result is a win-win for both our partners and their clients.” said Dan Wensley, Passportal President.

The new Blink™ mobile app allows MSPs to deliver both an automated self-service and proactive password reset technology. Blink™ 2.0 can detect multiple failed login attempts for a user and proactively prompt them in the mobile app to determine if they require assistance. This new proactive technology serves as an additional security measure by notifying a user that they, or someone else, has had multiple failed login attempts on their account. The mobile app also provides additional security by using biometric verification to identify the user prior to completing the password reset request.

Passportal’s Founder & CEO, Colin Knox, is a former MSP owner himself who has seen firsthand the cost and frustration that password resets cost his business, and the impact it had on his clients. “Our Blink™ solution not only provides users a better experience and more secure solution to this issue, but strengthens the value, service, and reach into each client our partners serve. I just wish I had this for my MSP” said Colin.
