New Software Company Formed to Create Affordable, Open Identity Solutions for Education Market Announces Customer Advisory Program

Aegis Identity Software (, founded with one mission: to create open, affordable Identity Management solutions for the Education market, is launching at the Educause 2011 Annual Conference in Philadelphia. Based on AegisUSA’s ( 7 years of experience and more than 60 implementations of identity management, the new Aegis Identity Software brings to market the only identity management solution built specifically for higher education organizations, TridentHETM. Aegis Identity is marking this launch with a limited-time Customer Advisory Program.

“In the past 2 years, the Identity Management market has experienced dramatic changes, largely unfavorable to the education market,” said Ralph Armijo, CEO of Aegis Identity Software. “We created Aegis Identity Software to deliver solutions that are open, affordable and purpose-built for the unique needs of these institutions.”

Higher Education Requirements
Education organizations face unique challenges. Unlike commercial corporations, academic institutions must create a campus community, recruit and retain students, simplify administrative processes, improve learning experiences, and support research agendas - all while adhering to an evolving list of regulations.

  •     Tactics: Higher Education organizations are made up of large, transient populations of diverse individuals and distributed departments, all operating under different security requirements, technology providers, and compliance to regulations. Identity management solutions must seamlessly and immediately integrate with these systems.
  •     Economics: With increasing responsibilities and decreasing budgets, organizations are driven to adopt open standards-based products, that can be supported in-house with lower operations and maintenance costs and no per-user fees.
  •     Strategic: Many IT managers are challenged to find balance while delivering contemporary learning technologies and maintaining a stable, cost-effective infrastructure. To decrease support costs and speed implementation, effective solutions must align with common technologies found in higher education, such as SIS, LMS and ERP.
