University of Hull Replaces Legacy Systems to Deliver Superior Experience
The university was challenged to maintain the security of its sensitive and important resources, while simultaneously satisfying access demands and BYOD initiatives. To address these needs efficiently and without hurting user experience, it needed to replace its legacy authentication systems with a single solution that provided federated authentication, single sign-on (SSO) and multi-factor authentication (MFA). The solution needed to provide secure access to both internal and external hosted services for a range of users and devices, as well as support a planned move to Office 365.
IDM specialist ProofID partnered with Ping to deliver a fully managed service, centered on PingFederate and PingID.
By choosing PingFederate, ProofID could replace the university’s Shibboleth service, which was being used to access a substantial number of library resources. They were also able to extend the SSO capabilities of PingFederate to accommodate a range of applications, including the university’s collaborative storage solution from Box, and Canvas, its new Virtual Learning Environment. ProofID will also use PingFederate to enable directory integration and SSO for Office 365.
