Chicago, July 11, 2019: Campus Consortium, a leading non-profit education association with a mission to help institutions across the globe to reduce the time, effort, and cost associated with implementing enterprise IT services, announces a $180,000 grant award to Rose State College. This grant will enable the institution to implement the Single Sign-On, Password Manager with MFA, and Adaptive Authentication solutions to assist students with the tedious task of remembering numerous logins & passwords and allow the students to login in effortlessly and safely.
“Our lean staffing levels within the Information Technology Services precludes our ability to provide more than ten hours of daily customer service support for account management, provisioning, and password assistance for our students, faculty, and staff. Given, today’s account security challenges, the ability to provide users with multifactor authentication is a must. Implementation of Single Sign-On, Password Manager with MFA, and Adaptive Authentication solutions would enable us that essential functionality to key systems for our users,” said John Primo, Vice President, Information Technology at Rose State College.
The implementation of Single Sign-On, Password Manager with MFA, and Adaptive Authentication solutions with the support of the Campus Consortium Grants will act as a respite for students. The grant will offset the licensing, hosting, professional services, and support costs associated with the implementation of these solutions.
“Campus Consortium is pleased to award these grants to Rose State College. Implementation of these solutions will make student and faculty experience better, along with tightening security parameters. These solutions will also provide students a relief from having to remember numerous logins and passwords as they navigate their campus experience”, said John Wannemacher, Executive Director of Campus Consortium.
