We also look forward to participating in the revised Bronze and Silver certification program updates this year.”

The company’s solutions include TridentHE, the first identity management software suite designed for higher education. Additionally, AegisUSA provides a set of services and products to support the goals of InCommom, including professional services to implement Shibboleth CAS, and a Federated Identity Appliance for Education.
