AegisUSA, an Identity Management solution provider with a focus on Federated Identity becomes a strategic partner of Gluu, inc.
Aegis Identity becomes reseller of Gluu’s federated cloud identity appliance to offer its customers SSO and federated identity management.
Greenwood Village, Colorado, January 12, 2012 – AegisUSA, (www.aegisusa.com), continues a strong commitment to Higher Education and support of InCommon® (www.incommon.org) as the first Gluu Appliance Reseller. Gluu’s Cloud Identity Appliance normalizes the process of deploying and managing single sign-on (SSO) relationships with InCommon federation participants, as well as organizations using the OASIS SAML 2.0 standard. As many institutions utilize the services of cloud service providers, AegisUSA seeks solutions like the Gluu Appliance which simplify the management of SSO and federated identity management.
The Gluu Appliance is a fit for AegisUSA’s solution stack for a number of reasons: (1) the graphical interface provides visibility to those at an institution responsible for managing what information is being released to which websites; (2) as a utility SSO computing solution, the Appliance helps to shorten the initial deployment process and lower the ongoing operating costs associated with maintenance; (3) ongoing monitoring and support provided along with the Appliance helps institutions extend their ability to support the increasingly complex SSO requirements without adding additional staff.
“Gluu is honored to collaborate with Aegis USA, one of the technology leaders in Higher Education, on bringing identityfederation to institutions large and small. Their experience integrating single sign-on will be a great benefit to our mutual customers”, stated Mike Schwartz, CEO, Gluu, Inc.

The Gluu appliance is beneficial to building user interfaces for the university as an identity provider.
