The report describes PortAuthority Technologies’ position as a leader in the ILP market due to its overall strategy and solid product functionality. In this evaluation, PortAuthority Technologies earned top scores in the Policy Management, Architecture and Product Strategy evaluation criteria.1

In the report, the first in-depth Wave analysis of its kind for the ILP market and key players, Jonathan Penn, principal analyst, identity and security, writes that, “PortAuthority Technologies offers a leading, functionally rich, information leak prevention solution, with a track record of innovation and strong strategic vision. In our Forrester Wave study of eight leading ILP offerings, PortAuthority scored highly in nearly every area of functionality we reviewed, standing out particularly in policy management, non-text accuracy, and external system connectivity.
