National Educational Computing Conference - Version3, Inc., developers of the Version3 Simple Sign-On solution is launching one of the most comprehensive and cost-effective application access management solutions available to schools, this week, at the National Educational Computing Conference. The availability of this product will immediately leverage an already existing Windows infrastructure in schools for Identity and Application Access Management capabilities.

Version3 Simple Sign-On transparently integrates individual application identity through Microsoft's Active Directory. Once implemented into a healthy Microsoft Active Directory environment, any educational institution can dramatically simplify its identity management initiative, streamline its business process and reduce administration costs. In addition, students now have single-point access and authentication to school resources, information and applications.

Version3 has specifically built key infrastructure into Version3 Simple Sign-On v1.5, which is integral to all levels of the educational environment – from K-12 up through the university level; Version3 Simple Sign-On can assist schools in managing access to all their applications–which is why Version3 is promoting a new program:

SAMI – School Access Management Initiative

With the new SAMI program, schools can take advantage of Version3’s Simple Sign-On application access management solution for a significantly reduced price to get all levels of education, K-20, involved in a coordinated system-wide effort to develop a secure student identity management infrastructure.

"Over the last couple of years there’s been a lot of discussions about identity management tools for schools," says Andy Sakalian, President of Version3, Inc. "But S.A.M.I. finally allows schools to take advantage of a true application access management solution, helping schools reap the benefits of secure single sign-on technology, by providing integration with education specific applications and keeping costs to a minimum."
