Top IT Challenges we are Tackling at Educause 2018

October 26th, 2018   |     |  product & technology

IT admins in the education space - whether they work in K-12 or Higher Ed - face a number of daunting challenges.

They often deal with multiple sources of truth for identity management, and need to enact regular provisioning changes for students every year.

Each type of user - whether they be students, faculty, or even alumni - possess a different level of technical skill, requires a different level of application access, and has different needs when it comes to accessing apps from varying devices and locations.

Not to mention the constant stream of password reset requests from their less tech-savvy users.

An all-in-one solution

Lucky for educators, OneLogin addresses each of these issues with a security-first mindset.

OneLogin for Educators in action.

OneLogin streamlines the creation, modification and deletion of user accounts in any app to ensure that faculty, students, applicants, and alumni all have the right level of app access in real-time. Admins also have an instant kill switch to eliminate lingering access to school applications after users depart.

Whether IT admins deal with the complexities of Shibboleth or CAS, OneLogin offers an easier and more robust out-of-box solution. OneLogin’s Single Sign-On functionality grants users secure and instant access to all of their apps from any device with just one password. This provides a simple experience even for the least tech-savvy user. And in the event that they do forget their one password, OneLogin provides self-service password reset functionality to users to eliminate Helpdesk tickets.

Admins can also apply custom multi-factor authentication (MFA) policies for different groups to add an extra layer of security to data-sensitive apps like grading tools or HR resources.

And as an added bonus, admins can automate self-registration for applicants and alumni to automatically onboard them into the user directory.

The result is that IT admins can spend less time worrying about how their users are accessing their applications.
