Enhancing the student experience with next-gen Identity & Access Management

Academia, Micro Focus and Identity Methods are excited to invite you to a webinar focusing on the challenges and solutions of Identity Management within Higher and Further Education.

What is Identity Management?

Identity management is the process of granting or denying access to systems and applications. Simple right? No and it’s getting harder, especially for education, but why?


One obvious challenge is the sheer number of systems we need access to now, often resulting in easy to remember (and hack) credentials. Furthermore these systems/applications may reside outside our network and control, increasing risk. Education often have unique challenges, with large student populations, researchers and external users who may need varying access to systems and applications. It’s not just a case of ensuring people can access these with ease and securely, but ensuring users can only access what they need and should have rights to.


The risk of getting it wrong can impact your reputation and end user experience, resulting in data loss and potential fines.
