Cirrus Identity has been busy expanding our suite of services, and we are proud to announce our new Guest Management package. This packages combines social identity login (with our familiar social-to-saml gateway), a stand-alone external 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. Together, these services enhance the user experience for guests trying to gain online access at universities.
The growing need for campuses to simplify guest access to online services hasn’t been met with a viable solution, until now.

Today, an article came out in the Huffington Post offering advice about what really matters through the college application process.

In a world where we have access to as much information as we do, the only way to standout is to be our authentic and passionate selves. YES.

As Cirrus Identity grows, all parts of our business have to change too. We have to find more desks for our team to work at, we have to formalize processes and make them scalable. You get the point.
