A critical part of the student experience and with CIAM in place, universities can maintain an up-to-date and secure system for managing student accounts. From the moment a student’s account is created to when they depart from their university, this process will automatically provide and de-provision access. This guarantees that only authorised users can view confidential information as approved by administrators.
CIAM is essential for universities to provide a secure and smooth student experience from application to alumni. With CIAM, universities can easily verify students’ identities, offer passwordless access and protect data with MFA security measures; allow efficient self-service portal management of accounts and ensure lifecycle management remains up to date. All these features help create an improved user journey on or off campus that meets the expectations of today’s tech-savvy students while always keeping their information safe. CIAM is an integral strategy for today’s digital-first university.
