Porticor VPD – Enhanced User Interface

Today we released version 2.15 of the Porticor VPD product. The main benefit of this new version is highly visible: the graphical user interface (GUI) was enhanced in all areas of the product.

The main goals of the new user interface are:

  • Maintain (or slightly improve) the product’s functionality.
  • Maintain full backward compatibility with existing deployed appliances.
  • Align the product’s visual “language” with Porticor’s Web presence.
  • Improve in-product navigation.

Portal Page – PVKM

Other than the new colors and the modernized user interaction, the last bullet is the most noticeable. Each page on the new appliance improves the user’s navigation experience by providing a pair of menus: a top menu for in-appliance navigation, and a left-hand menu for out-of-appliance navigation. In addition, each page displays the project name, the name of the appliance (this is most useful for multi-instance AWS projects) and the user’s name.

Existing Customers

As noted, the new PVKM is fully compatible with existing appliances, and the full PVKM functionality is available under the new “skin”.

If you wish to upgrade your appliances to the new GUI, you need to follow the restore procedure, just like any other product upgrade.
