The Ministry of Education in New Zealand can now control access from a wide user base to agency applications in the education sector.
The “Education Sector Logon” service leverages the Microsoft B2C platform for access control to applications used by sector-agencies. There are currently 24 enrolled applications.
In this webinar you will learn:
- How to leverage SAML for connections to supported applications,
- How to manage authentication from the sector IAM data store
- How to ensure appropriate registration of users
- How to maintain service levels via continuous testing and monitoring
- How the technology platform suits your specific needs
Graham Williamson (Senior Analyst and APAC Director) will introduce the topic of customer identity and access management and the importance of an appropriate identity data store. The importance of accommodating cloud-based applications in the access management infrastructure will be addressed.
Shane Day (Chief Technology Officer at UNIFY Solutions) will present on the Ministry’s Education Sector Login brokerage service, describing the components of the system and explaining its innovative features. He will also advise on the learnings of the deployment project.

The Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) market continues to develop with a significant push from organizations looking to adopt cloud-based delivery of security services including IAM. While IDaaS Access Management solutions, providing SSO (Single Sign-On) for the users and access to a variety of services are already established, IDaaS IGA is not as widely used yet. However, shifting IGA (Identity Governance and Administration) capabilities, e.g. Identity Lifecycle Management and Access Governance, to the cloud might provide significant benefits regarding time and cost of deploying and operating IGA.
