The Problem

UNH Secure Students

University of New Hampshire wanted to provide a secure, unified experience for all users which included students, faculty, and staff globally.

The Solution

Before purchasing the SecureAuth® Identity Platform, the University of New Hampshire evaluated SecureAuth against Okta, Ping, and One Login. “Ultimately, we chose SecureAuth because of the flexibility of the platform. We need both a cloud and on premise solution,” explained Matt, the IAM Program Manager at University of New Hampshire (UNH). The platform did not interfere with other solutions in place at UNH. “Competing solutions would require partial replacement of parts of our IDM platform. We have to take all comers when it comes to authenticating applications. A strength of SecureAuth is the protocol options. It enabled us to be least disruptive to our business partners,” says Matt.

UNH has been using SecureAuth for three years and has standardized their platform. Using the SecureAuth solution they have grown to 65 SaaS Applications being supported.

“We have been using the Identity Platform for three years now and would absolutely refer somebody to use SecureAuth, definitely,” concludes Matt.

Advice to New Customers

UNH Secure Computers

“My advice to a new customer would be to invest in the administrator training because the platform is so flexible, it does mean that there's a lot of choice when it comes to implementing. For us, getting all of our admins into one room for the training, allowed us to better develop a unified approach. For example, we've on boarded 63 new applications over the past three years. If we didn't have a good admin training, we would still be implementing app 30,” says Matt.
