Tim Till to Present on Current and Future Identity Management Challenges Facing Higher Education

EDUCAUSE Annual 2016HOUSTON, TX, October 19, 2016 – Identity Automation, provider of the most scalable, full-lifecycle identity and access management (IAM) software on the market, today announced its presence at the Educause Annual Conference, taking place Oct. 25-28, 2016 in Anaheim, California. Identity Automation’s Director of Sales for North America and Higher Education IAM Specialist, Tim Till, is set to present a breakout session on the next wave of identity management challenges facing higher education.

Today’s colleges and universities manage identities and access for increasingly complex and dispersed environments that contain thousands of users. Many of these institutions still use legacy IAM systems that are costly, inefficient, and often are unable to keep up with today’s educational environment and threat landscape. However, as schools look to modernize their classrooms and secure their data, they must consider modernizing their IAM solutions to seamlessly navigate these challenges.

Identity Automation will present on how next generation IAM solutions address the unique identity and access management challenges in higher education, by enabling universities and colleges to seamlessly manage users with multiple roles, external users, ad-hoc access requests, and the identities of students, and staff accounts, as well as for research partners, contractors, temporary employees and other contingent workers. In addition, Tim Till will provide real-world use cases, including Houston Community College’s journey to implementing a modern IAM solution and the challenges other higher ed organizations face with managing users at scale.

Identity Automation will also be exhibiting its next-gen identity and access management software at booth #1263 on Wednesday, Oct. 26th from 9:30am - 6:30pm PT and on Thursday, Oct. 27th from 10:00am - 4:30pm PT.
