Get a Higher Level of Identity Management

With complex, ever-changing populations, non-hierarchical structures, dynamic partnerships, and overlapping roles and identity sources, colleges and universities face challenges that standard identity management solutions simply can’t address.

Unlike other solutions, RapidIdentity was built to address the unique identity and access management (IAM) challenges of higher education and more. RapidIdentity provides the security, data privacy, and adaptability necessary for your institution to excel at its mission.

Unique Identity Challenges in Higher Education

Building bright minds

Users with Multiple Roles and Access Levels

From students that are staff to faculty that are students—your users often hold multiple roles, which all too often results in data synchronization issues and increased password resets and support calls. RapidIdentity overcomes these challenges by detecting users with multiple roles and merging them into a single account.

Increased Technology in the Classroom

Digital content, collaborative tools, and online file-sharing and management solutions are now commonplace in colleges. Ensuring students and faculty have correct access from day one is critical to providing a collaborative learning environment and a positive user experience. Streamline and secure the use of technology in the classroom with RapidIdentity’s automated provisioning and secure single sign-on capabilities.

Managing Users at Scale

Higher education IT departments must deal with thousands of new users being on-boarded and off-boarded at once. When managed with scripts and manual workarounds, this quickly becomes a time-consuming, budget-draining headache for your IT staff. RapidIdentity enables you to automate the full user lifecycle, increasing efficiency and enabling your IT staff to focus on long-term IT initiatives that benefit the growth of your school.

Growing Numbers of Contingent & External Users

More than ever, higher education is relying on adjunct professors, contractors, and external partners. However, this not only leaves your IT staff with the burden of manually providing these users with access, but the ensuing lack of visibility into these users’ actions leaves you vulnerable to security risks. RapidIdentity’s sponsorship feature offers out-of-box functionality and workflows specifically designed to manage external users, complete with time-based certification expiration that automates the de-provisioning process.

Ad-Hoc Access Requests

Ad-Hoc Access Requests

Visiting professors and students require network and facility access privileges when on your campus, but these last-minute ad-hoc requests eat up your IT staff’s time. With RapidIdentity, what once took days or even weeks can be done in a matter of minutes. IT simply delegates to staff the ability to request or instantly create accounts and automatically provision appropriate network and facilities access.
