Fisk University Selects QuickLaunch to Streamline User Lifecycle Management and Manage Digital Identities

Chicago, IL – Aug 04, 2020: QuickLaunch, the only AI-powered identity Integration-Platform-as-a-Service proudly announces its partnership with Fisk University, a privately held historically black institution in Nashville, Tennessee. Fisk University selected QuickLaunch to streamline user lifecycle management and transform the user experience.

As part of this collaboration, QuickLaunch will be offering its solutions (Identity Provider (IdP), Single Sign-On (SSO), Password Manager with MFA, Adaptive Authentication, User Self-Registration and Automated Provisioning) to support Fisk University and its goal to implement a robust IAM solution to achieve business continuity success at this time of global unrest.

Solutions to be implemented at Fisk University

QuickLaunch Identity Provider will help Fisk University to implement and maintain a trusted and secured identity solution on the cloud while Single Sign-On will help the users to securely login to essential applications using a single set of credentials. This will eliminate the problem of remembering multiple credentials for different applications by providing a unified login experience for users.

Smart Password Manager with MFA will allow users to reset passwords on their own using multiple factors of authentication (SMS, Email, Security Questions). This will not only reduce help desk call volumes and IT overhead costs but will also help to boost the draining productivity of IT help desk and users overall.

Adaptive Authentication will enhance fraud risk assessments by leveraging artificial intelligence. It will trigger additional authentication based on deviations in user behavior (network, location, browser, device, etc.), preventing unauthorized access.

User Self-Registration will help first-time users to create their own password, eliminating the process of providing default passwords to new users joining Fisk University.

Automated Provisioning will help IT administrators to onboard users faster, streamline user access management across multiple applications, grant privileges to different users based on their roles and synchronize active directory changes to downstream applications within seconds. Automated provisioning will boost the productivity of IT administrators while enhancing institutional security by ensuring the right access to the right users at the right time.
