Identity Automation Partners with PIXM to Offer Robust Anti-Phishing Solutions for K12, Higher Education
Identity Automation, the digital identity platform for education, announced a new partnership with PIXM, an artificial intelligence cybersecurity startup, to launch PhishID, a powerful anti-phishing solution integrated into Identity Automation’s RapidIdentity IAM platform.
Our schools have become more digitally connected in recent years, significantly increasing the threat landscape. The Consortium of School Networking (CoSN) found that over 90 percent of cyber security incidents began with phishing attacks. The vulnerabilities will increase unless educational organizations take action to block attacks through phishing prevention.
Arming K-12 and higher education with robust and reliable protection against today’s ever-evolving phishing attacks, PhishID stops phishing attacks in real-time through the browser at the point-of-click. This approach protects beyond email-based attacks to provide a holistic defense that can be implemented without disrupting instructional time.
Providing yet another layer of protection against account takeovers and other forms of identity theft, the new PhishID offering is available through Identity Automation’s RapidIdentity platform. With RapidIdentity, institutions and districts are able to bring together identity management and authentication solutions with PIXM’s point-of-click phishing protection.

“We are pleased to work with a fellow innovator such as PIXM to provide the latest protections and efficiencies schools need today,” said Identity Automation CEO Jim Harold. “A PIXM-Identity Automation partnership is a great example of working together to empower and secure educators with the newest measures of protection they need to maximize learning time and minimize distractions or delays from dangerous threats such as phishing.”
“Educators and learners shouldn’t have to worry about phishing attempts,” said Chris Cleveland, Founder and CEO of PIXM. “Partnering with Identity Automation provides an additional layer of protection to keep their information secure. Our AI-based technology identifies phishing attempts designed to bypass security measures and blocks users before they can enter their credentials.”
