Chicago, IL – 12th Feb - University of Guam has chosen QuickLaunch, the leading cloud-based, self-service Identity as a Service (IDaaS) platform to achieve Self-Service Password Reset & implement Multifactor authentication.

According to Gartner, manual password resets cost the IT helpdesk upto $23 per password reset. With multiple password resets for 1000s of students, the costs could skyrocket. Self-Service password resets would automate the entire process thereby freeing up the IT help desk and result in lowering IT costs.

With the ever-increasing number of IT Security breaches, University of Guam felt the need to fortify Institutional Security using Multifactor Authentication. Here are the capabilities of QuickLaunch that University of Guam chose:

  • imgPassword Manager, a self-service tool for managing passwords without relying on helpdesk services
  • imgMulti-Factor Authentication (MFA), an authentication tool that provides more than one factor of authentication. The modes include phone, email, security questions and more.

Here are the additional capabilities of the QuickLaunch platform:

  • imgSingle Sign-On, a self-service tool to provide users single-click access to multiple applications
  • imgIdentity Provider, a cloud-based source of trust where user identities reside with multiple protocol support such as SAML, CAS, OAuth etc.

"We are pleased that University of Guam chose QuickLaunch to help students reset passwords on their own, thanks to our Self-Service Password Reset capabilities.” said Neeraj Kainth, the CEO, QuickLaunch. He also added that, “They also leverage our platform’s Multifactor Authentication capabilities and Just-in-time provisioning for first time users thereby solving security challenges ."
