Building the Future of Higher Education with One Identity for Life


The pandemic has upended the higher education system. Vacated dorms, online classes, and virtual graduation ceremonies are just a few of the challenges these institutions face. Colleges and Universities struggle now with keeping students, faculty, and staff physically safe while still navigating the path to keeping their data safe as well. With remote learning an increasing part of today’s higher education experience, identity management is more crucial than ever. Identity in higher education comes with increased challenges because the persona-based identity access requirements evolve based on time, place, the resource being accessed, and role. Whether dealing with a faculty member who is also a student or a student who works on campus as a staff member dealing with complex and overlapping identity personas is a constant struggle.
