Single Sign-On Grant
The Campus Consortium is pleased to announce the availability of a limited number of Single Sign-On Grants. Single sign-on provides a streamlined login process, end users enter their credentials once to access their institution's approved applications. The Campus Consortium Single Sign-On Grant covers 100% of the licensing costs associated with implementing a single sign-on solution, usually costing $60,000.
Benefits of Single Sign-On
Single sign-on not only improves security and reduces IT help desk traffic, it is a tool that end users have come to expect. Every education institution has a number of related applications that all required a password for security reasons: library archives, student accounts, on-campus job boards, learning management systems, student email, etc. If an institution doesn't provide single sign-on, end users are stuck either creating the same password for every application which creates a huge security risk, or they are stuck trying to remember their 10 different passwords and logins which floods your IT help desk with requests for access and password updates. By implementing single sign-on human error is removed, end user satisfaction is increased, and security is tightened.
Single sign-on can be set up for any application required by your institution. For example, single sign-on will easily operate with your portal solution:
There are also thousands of pre-build adaptors to single sign-on for applications such as:
