Visual Guard was initially developed in the 90's for a major banking institution. Since then, it has constantly evolved to comply with modern security requirements. It is now used by medium and large organizations, as well as many software vendors thoughout the world.
Visual Guard is a modular solution covering most application security requirements, from application-level security systems to Corporate Identity and Access Management Solutions.

|Number of user accounts
Each Enterprise licenses allows declaring a certain number of user accounts. Visual Guard can support millions of users, public-facing systems or multiple international corporate sites.

Authenticate users with their Windows Accounts and grant them permissions and roles defined within Visual Guard.
Authenticate users with login/password accounts defined within Visual Guard. Define a password policy for these accounts (see below).
|Self User Registration
for login/password accounts, users can create their account themselves. You can let Visual Guard grant them automatically default roles. You can also require an admin validation before they can access your system.
Define a hierarchy of user groups, for instance replicating the hierarchical structure of your organization. Place users in 1 or several groups. Grant roles à group level.
Form-based authentication (both for windows accounts and login/pwd accounts)
|Windows SSO (Single Sign-On)
Visual Guard automatically authenticates users with the Account associated to the current Windows session. Users don't need to enter credentials to access your application(s).
For .NET desktop applications (WPF, Winforms): Visual Guard stores locally the user security data, and keeps managing authentication and permissions while offline.
|Custom Password Policy
For login/password accounts, you can customize the rules to define, renew, unlock and expire a password. For Windows accounts, the current Active Directory Password Policy will apply.
|Remote Windows Authentication
User can authenticate with their Windows credentials, although they do not connect from your corporate network. Eg public wifi, mobile Internet, etc.
|Web SSO (Single Sign-On)
Single Sign-On across websites hosted in completely independent networks or companies. Users log once, and jump from a website to another, without loging in again
|Permissions and Roles management||Express||Professional||Enterprise|
|Manage permissions and roles
Define fine-grain permissions for each application feature or data you wish to restrict access to. Group permissions by permission sets and roles.

The support provided by Novalys has been excellent and very quick
Thanks to the Administration Console (and the different available roles) it is very easy to give the ability to create roles and users to business administrators and divide the tasks between the development team and the administrators.
The most important benefit of VG is that we have a central place to manage the authentication and the authorizations for all the company
A physician's primary goal is to give treatment not to remember their passwords [...] I think I'm saving 50% of time in such menial tasks like resetting passwords.
