PortalGuard IDaaS will significantly improve user access by providing secure multi-factor authentication (MFA) and single sign-on (SSO) to campus-wide applications, including Microsoft Office 365, Blackboard, and Ellucian Colleague, among others, while replacing expensive competitive solutions that are challenging to manage and support. By leveraging PortalGuard’s robust self-service password reset capabilities, North Central College can solve a significant IT pain point and essentially eliminate related help desk costs providing an immediate return on investment.
