WGU and Ping take higher education higher

The world of higher education is becoming less and less of a brick-and-mortar learning experience. And that goes for everyone involved—educators, staff and students. To keep interactions in the institution streamlined and secure, everyone needs to be able to quickly and seamlessly authenticate and access all the systems they need, on campus or not.

Weighing his options for a new solution, nothing seemed to hold a candle to the capabilities and performance of PingFederate and PingAccess, which made his decision easy. Hear Lamont’s side of the story by watching the video.
