Single Sign-On for Banner® Grant

SINGLE SIGN-ON FOR BANNER® OVERVIEW

Achieving Single Sign-On for Banner® has always been an uphill challenge. However, it is now achievable through CAS SSO which helps increase the usability & adoption of Banner®. In addition, it also increases the integration points for Banner®. This CAS support is very significant, considering the fact Banner® offers very limited support to SSO protocols.

For Higher Education Institutions looking for single sign-on options that are more feasible and flexible, CAS Support Functionality of Banner® XE & Banner® 9 is very helpful. This opens Banner® to more unique configurations and deployments thereby expanding its adoption potential at a very wide selection of Higher Education Institutions through third-party Single Sign-On tools such as QuickLaunch.

QuickLaunch can integrate with Banner® using the CAS SSO protocol which provides streamlined access through a large selection of varying configurations. Not just that, it can be easily coupled with integrated password reset and multifactor functionality thereby acting as a one-stop solution to achieve Single Sign-On in its truest complete sense.

ADVANTAGES AND BENEFITS OF THE SINGLE SIGN-ON SOLUTION FOR BANNER®

Single Sign-On enhances usability, security and reduces IT help desk traffic. Banner® is one of the most commonly used Student Information Systems & providing Single Sign-On access to Banner® applications increases student productivity, helps to achieve compliance and improves security.
