Aegis Identity Software, Inc. is named as a "Selected Vendor " for Identity and Access Management for both Organization Centric and Federation based deployments in Gartner's IT Market Clock for Higher Education, 2014

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Aegis Identity Software, Inc. a leading provider of Identity and Access Management solutions for the Education marketplace is recognized in two categories in Gartner IT Market Clock for Higher Education, 2014.  Analysis by Jan Martin-Lowendahl and Gregg Kreizman, published on August 13, 2014. 

Identity and Access Management – Organization Centric. According to the Gartner report, "Overall, IAM is necessary to enable personalized, secure and auditable access to networks, systems and data, which is a top priority in higher education".  We believe this category positions the value of Aegis Identity's TridentHE Software to higher education institutions. 

Identity and Access Management – Federation. In the report it states that "Federated identity management provides single sign-on and enables identity information to be shared among several entities and across trust domains". The functionality allows for higher education to securely share resources between universities to broaden the services available to constituents. 

"We are thrilled that Aegis Identity Software was recognized by Gartner in the above two categories in the IT Market Clock for Higher Education, 2014," said Bob Lamvik, President, Aegis Identity Software, Inc. "Managing and provisioning digital identities in a large scale and fast paced environment such as Higher Education requires a robust solution. We believe having Gartner's recognition as a 'Selected Vendor' in this regard is tremendous!"

Aegis Identity Software has built an enterprise-class software platform designed for managing digital identities in the education marketplace. This success has been demonstrated by the adoption of this technology by numerous universities throughout North America such as University of Oregon, Radford University, and Wake Forest University to name just a few.
