Saint Mary's College Selects QuickLaunch for Identity and Access Management

Miami, FL – Feb 22, 2021: Saint Mary’s College, a private Catholic women’s liberal arts college selects QuickLaunch to manage digital identities, streamline access control, and drive digital transformation. As a part of this collaboration, QuickLaunch will empower the institution with its proprietary solutions (Single Sign-On, Smart Password Manager with MFA, Adaptive Authentication, User Self-Registration, and Mobile App) to specifically address security and automation business needs of the institution.

QuickLaunch AI-powered Single Sign-On will help Saint Mary’s College to allow users (students, staff, and faculty) to login to multiple applications such as Banner, Blackboard, Slate, O365 and many other applications using a single set of credentials, thus enhancing the end user experience, and greatly improving user productivity.

Smart Password Manager with MFA will allow users to utilize self-service functionality to reset lost/forgotten passwords 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 challenge questions. It will drastically reduce help desk call volume, thereby reducing operational costs.

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 false access. It will give a boost to institutional security and prevent account takeover attacks.

User Self-Registration will simplify the process of user onboarding and will eliminate the practice of sending default password through email or letters. A user who has just joined the institution will receive a welcome note on email to create a password and update security profile.

In a nutshell, QuickLaunch will help the Saint Mary’s College to manage digital identities, enhance the end user experience, boost user productivity, improve institutional security, reduce operational costs, and all this at one-third of the cost as compared to other vendors.
