In my old ( >10 years ago) code I was using this:
public StatusType getAvailableComPorts()
{
  StatusType status = new StatusType(StatusCodeType.OK, null, "", "");
  try
  {
    string[] availableComPorts = SerialPort.GetPortNames();

    if ((availableComPorts == null) || (availableComPorts.Length <= 0))
    {
      status.statusCode = StatusCodeType.OTHER_ERROR;
      status.errorHeading = "No Com Ports Available";
      status.errorMessage = "No available com port was found on your computer. Please add a com port or use a different computer to control your PTT box.";
      return status;
    }
    Array.Sort(availableComPorts, new ComPortComparerClass());


    ComPortInformation[] comPortsInformation = new ComPortInformation[availableComPorts.Length];
    for (int i = 0; i < comPortsInformation.Length; i++)
    {
      comPortsInformation[i] = new ComPortInformation(availableComPorts[i]);
    }

    // Try to get the user friendly name for each Com port
    if ((availableComPorts != null) && (0 < availableComPorts.Length))
    {
      try
      {
        ManagementObjectSearcher searcher = new ManagementObjectSearcher("root\\CIMV2", "SELECT * FROM Win32_PnPEntity");
        for (int i = availableComPorts.Length - 1; 0 <= i; i--)
        {
          foreach (ManagementObject queryObj in searcher.Get())
          {
            if ((queryObj["Name"] != null) && (queryObj["Name"].ToString().Contains("(" + availableComPorts[i] + ")")))
            {
              comPortsInformation[i].comPortDescriptor = queryObj["Caption"].ToString().Replace("(" + availableComPorts[i] + ")", "").Trim();
              break;
            }
          }
        }
      }
      catch (ManagementException)
      {
      }
    }
    status.value = comPortsInformation;
  }
  catch (Exception e)
  {
    status.statusCode = StatusCodeType.OTHER_ERROR;
    status.errorHeading = "Error";
    status.errorMessage = "Error getting available com ports. Technical info: " + e.Message;
  }
  return status;
}
For some reason I stepped away from this (maybe it was this part that was too slow?) and started using the other approach instead.
