Chaffey College selects BIO-key ’ s PortalGuard SaaS IAM Solution

Southern California-based Chaffey

College has selected BIO-key ’ s
PortalGuard cloud hosted IAM solution from BIO-key International to enhance the online user experience across the institution .
The college required a proven and secure IT solution to provide enterprise-grade online access to key education portals and applications for all of its 29,000 plus students and faculty .
During periods of peak utilization , such as the beginning of the new school year , Chaffey ’ s portal access was not performing optimally with its current vendor-provided solution , creating issues for students and faculty in accessing the college ’ s platform , learning management system and other essential education applications .
The Chaffey executive team lost confidence in its current IAM vendor after repeatedly trying to work around solution limitations over the past two years without significant improvement . After reviewing options , Chaffey chose to implement BIO-key ’ s PortalGuard solution to leverage the reliability , scalability and redundancy that the cloud-based SaaS system offers , a technology recommended by the California Community Colleges Chancellor ’ s Office and used widely among community colleges statewide .
“ We are pleased to offer assistance to Chaffey College and provide them with a proven IAM solution ,” said Mark Cochran , President , BIOkey – PortalGuard .
“ Our solution is designed to handle the peak loads that are presented at the beginning of the school year .
“ There is no doubt that colleges need their technology to work reliably to maintain a constant connection with their students . We are continuing to provide new innovations to our IAM platform to enhance both security and usability and we are proud that over 120 institutions ’ trust in our technology .” • www . intelligentcio . com INTELLIGENTCIO
