Identity Automation acquires Enboard to bolster education IAM market position
 

Identity Automation has acquired Enboard, a company specializing in automated account management, single sign-on (SSO), smart account provisioning, rostering, and secure encryption technologies for education applications.

The deal increases Identity Automation’s footprint in the education market, and the combined product and service offerings can simplify efforts by school districts to keep pace with the changing security landscape with a fully integrated identity and access management (IAM) solution balancing usability and security, according to the company announcement. Existing customers of each company will have access to a broader variety of products and resources.

“Identity Automation and Enboard are both driven by a commitment to excellence in service, expertise, and innovation,” says James Litton, CEO of Identity Automation. “Combining RapidIdentity’s robust capabilities with Enboard’s expertise enables us to better achieve our mutual purpose of helping organizations become more secure through identity-driven security, while enhancing our products and services for our existing and prospective customers.”

Enboard has a significant presence in Texas, California, and the southeast U.S., and its employees will join Identity Automation with the acquisition.

“Identity Automation is a market leader with significant resources to drive growth and further product development. Their substantial presence in the education space and deep understanding of the needs of K-12 customers means Enboard customers will continue to receive superior customer service and identity solutions that address their unique needs,” observes Todd Newman, Chief Executive Officer of Encore Technology Group, which developed Enboard.

Identity Automation also recently announced a strategic alliance with 3Eye Technologies to offer its IAM technology through the channel on 3Eye’s DemandPro platform as part of its Identity Automation 2.0 growth strategy.
