Single Sign on and Identity Grant
Campus Consortium offers Grant Programs for a variety of solutions, products and services. Campus Consortium Grants are funded by Campus Consortium and its Technology Partners. These Grants are designed to give Institutions with a smaller IT budget a chance to implement new technology services that meet the needs of institutions and their constituents. Campus Consortium is proud to provide the Single Sign-On and Identity Grant to educational institutions interested in implementing a single sign-on and identity solution for use by their students, faculty, and staff that integrates with existing third party applications.
If your institution is looking to replace its current single sign-on; eliminate the use of multiple passwords into one “single” password for login; or implement a single sign-on solution for the first time, we recommend applying for this Grant. This Grant offers your institution a chance to financially take on implementing a single sign-on and identity solution with a clear ROI and no hidden costs that typically prevent most single sign-on solutions from being successfully implemented and maintained.
Single Sign-On and Identity Product Overview
“I forgot my username and password!” is one of the most common problems when managing multiple desktop and internet applications. Single Sign-On addresses this problem by enabling users to use one username and password to login into all their websites and enterprise software applications on any devices.
Through automation and online self-service, Single Sign-On offers a cost-effective single sign-on and identity solution with an increased number of online services and applications for end-users.
Single Sign-On has engineered a comprehensive security and SSO platform, targeted at easing integration with frequently used systems in any industry.
Advantages and Benefits of the Single Sign-On Solution
Single sign-on not only improves security and reduces IT help desk traffic, it is a tool that end users have now been adopting ever since the advent of federation via google apps or Facebook. Every institution has a number enterprise applications that are not necessarily tied to active directory or a common password for e.g. library archives, student accounts, on-campus job boards, learning management systems, student email, etc. Therefore, single sign-on and identity becomes imperative, so that users don’t have to remember multiple user names and passwords.
Single Sign-On and Identity is designed to help reduce help desk costs, improve end user satisfaction, boosts productivity, improves compliance and security capabilities and facilitate B2B collaboration
The cumulative grant reward is $91,500 and covers 100 active user licenses and implementation cost for 3 SSO Applets over a period of 5 years.
