Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
Aegis Identity Software, Inc., a leading provider of Identity and Access Management solutions for the Education marketplace is one of the vendors “positioned to provide a foundation for student, institution or school identification; authentication; and authorization across trust boundaries” as per Gartner’s IT Market Clock for Education 2013 report, published September 10, 2013 authored by Jan-Maritn Lowendahl et al. “The primary benefits listed are reduced identity administration for service providers, reduced authentication failures for users and user convenience through single sign-on. In the public sector specifically, it can also act as a catalyst for shared services.”
“The demands upon the IT staff in educational institutions are growing exponentially. Market trends such as Mobile Device Management, Hybrid IT and Cloud Computing, and Identity Federation, when balanced against security and compliance initiatives, require contemporary and strategic solutions,” said Bob Lamvik, COO & Co-Founder of Aegis Identity Software. “As a result, educational institutions are looking for new solutions that optimize open standards and allow them to control the lifecycle management and cost of the deployment.”
Gartner’s report outlines “the relatively high adoption rate in higher education has historically been driven by IT interests focused on federated IAM as an "obviously needed" infrastructure, not on the actual services that exploit it. However, increased interest in shared services and an increasing amount of SAML-enabled cloud services give new momentum to federated IAM implementation.”
