Aegis Identity logoLeveraging more than eight years of experience in education and 80 successful identity implementations, Aegis Identity Software has multiple goals: (1) to provide contemporary identity management solutions, (2) align with open source identity management technologies (such as Shibboleth, CAS, Grouper), and (3) using the EDUCAUSE model of “collaborative sourcing” to deploy IdM solutions quickly and without incurring a large professional service expense to the university. Designed specifically for higher education, TridentHE, provides an identity management platform to automate provisioning/de-provisioning, identity synchronization, password management and user self-service.
