ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Oct. 15, 2015 /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, 2015.  Analysis provided by Jan-Martin Lowendahl and Gregg Kreizman, published on September 9, 2015. 

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 and reinforces our commitment to the unique identity management requirements of higher education.   

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 honored that Aegis Identity Software was recognized by Gartner in the IT Market Clock for Higher Education, 2015, for the second consecutive year," said Jat Pannu, Chief Operating Office, Aegis Identity Software, Inc. "Managing and provisioning digital identities in a large scale and fast paced environment can be difficult. TridentHE delivers a robust solution that is simple to use and easily deployable. We believe having Gartner's recognition as a "Selected Vendor" in this regard reinforces Aegis Identity's TridentHE solution and position with higher education."
