Grants of up to $20,000 to USA, Canada, and International K-12 schools and institutions of higher education for user authentication software that offers staff and students safer access to applications and higher security levels for their accounts. Because passwords are no longer sufficient to protect user information, alternate types of authentication are required, and authentication logins must be adaptive.
Adaptive Multi-Factor Authentication (AMFA) serves as a security reinforcement that ensures that there is no room for intruder and the authentication is strengthened by using additional factors. It not only gives students and staff increased security to their accounts through risk-based authentication, but also eliminates the risk of unauthorized access and malpractice, thereby delivering considerable IT cost savings.
Key Components of the Grant:
- The cumulative grant reward of $20,000 for over a period of 5 years, covers 100% of the implementation and setup cost
- Multi-Factor Authentication up to 3 factors for 300 users
- Discounted price for additional users
- Multi-year discounts: More discounts when you sign multi-year deals through the grant program.
