October 04, 2018 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
October 4, 2018 - Naples, FL Fischer Identity today announced their selection by Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC), a premier, public research university with numerous nationally ranked academic programs. This new partnership adds to Fischer's growing list of R1 (Highest Research Activity) rated universities.

SIUC will replace their legacy identity management platform with Fischer's Managed Identity Services® solution. Fischer's Identity as a Service® offers cloud-based identity management, governance and single sign-on solutions that enable automated, end-to-end access control and enforcement, and seamless identity life cycle management for students, faculty, staff, research partners and other constituencies.

Following a rigorous evaluation process, Fischer was selected due in part to their deep understanding and support of higher education enterprise business processes, systems, and constituencies, and their exclusive ability to enable enterprise-grade provisioning and access governance from a cloud environment, automate access policy enforcement across multiple affiliations, low solution administration and rapid time-to-value.

"We are pleased to add such a prestigious university to our customer base, and to securely provide required access to applications and systems that ultimately increase productively and foster innovation through technology" said Fischer Identity's CEO Andrew Sroka. "Fischer's built-in configurations for higher education processes makes rapid time to value a reality."

SIU embraces a unique tradition of access and opportunity, inclusive excellence, innovation in research and creativity, and outstanding teaching focused on nurturing student success. As a nationally ranked public research university and regional economic catalyst, they create and exchange knowledge to shape future leaders, improve their communities, and transform lives. With more than 300 academic degree programs across all levels SIU is categorized by Carnegie as a high research university (RU/H).
