PolicyPortal is one of the applications being used on Windows Azure, — Danny Kim, CTO of FullArmor give a brief description of PolicyPortal?

With PolicyPortal, organizations can manage their remote end-points by extending their directory-based policies and applications over the Internet. A small piece of software resides on the client PC to communicate with the PolicyPortal application. Then, from a central location, administrators can manage PCs, set up user policies using Group Policy, distribute virtual applications and updates via App-V, monitor the health of specific PCs, manage PC inventories, and enforce security policies.

what would you say is the core business value in using PolicyPortal?

As a Windows .NET Services based product hosted in the cloud, PolicyPortal provides end-point management services at a fraction of the cost of traditional IT deployment models.  By removing the need to buy additional server hardware to host services such as application virtualization and Group Policy, organizations can pay on a subscription basis for delivering App-V based solutions and security policies for their unmanaged PCs.

PolicyPortal released for limited customers at Microsoft’s PDC conference and general availability is expected 2Q 2009.  Please email for more information or go to web site for evaluation and beta program signup.
