Miami, FL – Jan 8, 2021: QuickLaunch expands its customer portfolio and marks its global presence by onboarding American International University (Kuwait) as its customer. As part of this collaboration, QuickLaunch will empower the institution with its proprietary solutions (Single Sign-On, Smart Password Manager with MFA, Adaptive MFA, User Self-Registration and a User provisioning connector) to specifically address security and automation business needs.QuickLaunch AI-powered Single Sign-On will help the institution to allow users (students, staff, and faculty) to login to multiple applications such as Banner, Canvas, Office 365, and Zoom amongst others using a single set of credentials. This will enhance end user experience and improve user productivity.
Smart Password Manager with MFA will allow users to reset lost/forgotten password without the intervention of IT help desk as users will be able to reset passwords using multiple factors of authentication such as SMS, Email and security questions. This will drastically reduce the help desk calls volume, thereby reducing operational costs.Adaptive Authentication will help in detecting suspicious login attempts and alerting the users. The system will prompt MFA based on deviations in user behavior (time of login, location of login etc.).
User Self-Registration will allow first time users to set up their account and its password, thereby eliminating the need to sending default passwords to the users via mail or inland letters.
Banner user provisioning connector will replace custom scripts and automate the user onboarding process, thereby reducing IT overhead cost and errors during manual provisioning of the users.
Overall, QuickLaunch will help the American International University to manage digital identities, enhance end user experience, boost user productivity, improve institutional security, reduce operational costs, and all this at one-third of the cost as compared to the other vendors.
