We have finally the full blown release candidate of the new PSB portal available with the new profile editor. Main changes compared to old portal are:
- Everything is HTML5 based - also the profile editor. So no need for Java anymore.
- New company scope selector, more company focused model and better task flows.
- More intuitive security management like handling of the profiles, polices and software patches.
- Support the new PSB Workstation Security 12.00 features like Web content control and Connection control.
To get started just
You can return to using old portal when ever you want. There is one "irreversible action": taking the new profile editor into use. This is a one time operation for each solution provider account and it will impact all companies under it in the same go. Once you have taken the new profile editor into use, all profile editing and assigning profiles operations are only possible from the new UI side.
As of today, all PSB1 - 4 have the release candidate available at:
So go try it out and start giving us feedback through this thread or through the feedback form within the new UI.

(As a note, Firefox seems to at times have trouble with loading images fully; reloading fixes this, but using Chrome, IE, or any other browser is recommendable)

These slides are really useful - I can share some of the images with my admins before we migrate our profiles to the new portal.
Dear Ben and Petri,
What is the situation with security of logins at the new PSB portal?
Is it possible to receive SMS or use RSA token, smartcard, one-time pad, fingerprint or iris scanner, quantum fiber link witnessed PKI or holographic avatars to add resilience to password-based authentication?
The password-only nature of old PSB portal logins deterred some potential customers from considering public web hosted cloud-based management.
Thanks in advance, Yours Sincerely: Tamas Feher, Hungary.
unfortunately this release does not yet contain any improvements to that part. There are plans to introduce e.g. 2 factor authentication later, but no schedule promises yet.
PSB2 and PSB3 have been now also updated to release candidate versions.
So far we have received very little feedback from all of you. So please go try them out and let us know what you like and what you don't like.
This RC has today turned to a official release for everyone to use. You can find the new production links from the old portal login pages. Old beta links will also work for a while before we will take them down.
Please tell us if there has been any progress concerning 2-factor authentication or other beyond-passwords methods of login for the F-Secure PSB solution?
Every week there is some news about yet another 500 million passwords stolen and people are freaking out. Companies are asking about one-time pads and tokens and face recognition (which Microsoft is touting instead of fingerprints). Password-only PSB will soon become a dinosaur in a world ruled by unruly russian hackers!
Thanks for your kind attention, Yours Sincerely:
Tamas Feher, Hungary.
