Chicago, August 26, 2020: Campus Consortium, a global non-profit education association, announced today that it has awarded $315,000 in Technology Grants for cloud-based identity and access management solutions to Four Year, Private Institutions. Awarded institutions include University of Redlands and Ferrum College. The Grant was designed in collaboration with and supported by QuickLaunch™.
“We wanted to expand our offerings to all employees and students working or studying from home,” said Steve Garcia, Chief Information Officer at University of Redlands. “The Grants offered us the opportunity and resources to provide an all-in-one solution with one-click, secure access to all of our applications; reduce the security risks associated with our users’ account management using a user provisioning and deprovisioning solution that centralizes the management of our users’ identities; and automate our entire new student and staff onboarding process.”
“We recognize that our schools need help adapting to a new way of doing business,” said Anjli Jain, Founder and Chairman of the Campus Consortium. “Our cybersecurity grant is designed to help schools move mission critical, premise-dependent services quickly and securely to a cloud-based environment. For example, these institutions can now onboard new users virtually and securely in the cloud. The grants awarded also give students, faculty and staff one-stop access to all campus services with enhanced security features like multi-factor authentication so that their data can be protected from wherever they are studying or working.”
