Guest Account Management Solutions
Posted by Dedra Chamberlin on Jul 29, 2016 12:18:31 PM

Cirrus Identity has been busy expanding our suite of services, and we are proud to announce our new Comprehensive Guest Account Management package. This packages combines social identity login (with our familiar social-to-saml gateway), a stand-alone identity provider (branded with your campus look and feel) for users who don't want to use social login, our invitation service, an account linking service, an identity provider proxy, and APIs to integrate with your enterprise identity systems.
