Challenges in Higher Education

Cyberattacks continue to target higher education as the cost and reputational damages of a breach continue to rise. At the same time, student success now depends on a modern digital experience.

Introduce New Apps Not Passwords

Part of the digital experience is introducing new services and applications, such as a new online campus for students. However, with each new service comes a new password for students to remember. Leverage single sign-on to all applications to reduce password prompts that can cause friction.

Securing Remote Learning

Adding to the challenge is schools by nature have a transient audience, with new students coming and going every semester.  Today, online education has introduced a new security risk, because schools need to securely identify the person that’s participating in the course and taking the tests. Ultimately, it all boils down to positive identification.

Reduce Password Reset Calls

Forgotten passwords can quickly lead to a higher volume of password-related help desk calls and frustration for students. By providing self-service options to reset or recover a forgotten password you can save both time and money by reducing the number of help desk calls while creating a more secure environment.

Securing Sensitive Data

Institutions store a wealth of highly sensitive data, that if targeted would be negative for the victim. It is critical to secure faculty and student personally identifiable information (PII) including healthcare, credit card/payment options especially from paying the semester’s tuition, and other information such as classes and majors.

Customer Success Story

“Since we implemented BIO-key PortalGuard, password reset help desk calls have decreased dramatically. The Single Sign-On implementation could not have been easier and we have since integrated it with SharePoint, Blackboard, Canvas, OWA, and WebAdvisor. The product is simple to configure and maintain. We could not be more pleased with how this product and company have worked for our needs.”
