Furman University: Drop-in Federation Solution Quickly Unlocks Door to InCommon® Membership

Fischer International Identity, LLC, the leader in cloud-based identity management, announced today that Furman University has moved into production the Fischer Identity solution for federated single sign-on, enabling the University to satisfy the InCommon® federation requirements and begin realizing the benefits of InCommon membership.

Furman saw the opportunity to simplify operations and to reduce costs by leveraging InCommon federation capabilities with industry standards for authentication to on-campus and SaaS-based applications. According to Randy Dill, Director of Enterprise Systems at Furman University, “we needed to implement Shibboleth federated SSO within a short timeframe as part of our InCommon membership, but we didn’t have the skill set. We have been very pleased with Fischer: They set our expectations, performed all work remotely to reduce expenses, and implemented the solution on time and in budget. In addition to implementing the solution, Fischer went the extra mile for us and helped troubleshoot and resolve an issue related to changes in the metadata.”

Since the implementation, Furman has extended the solution themselves to additional federated applications and plans to link to several other federated applications. Furman also plans to further simplify the user experience by integrating the solution with their user portal, which is already linked with their non-federated SSO solutions, so that users will use the same process to authenticate to any portal application.
