100,000 student logins per day processed by Edugate

HEAnet’s Edugate federated access system usage has increased three fold in the past 12 months and now processes up to 100,000 logins per day.

Edugate provides the main authentication system behind some institutions core services like student email and virtual learning environments, but also niche applications like campus parking and student lockers. A particular area of growth has been in the area of access to e-resources, with the number of publishers doubling in the past year, thus providing a valuable route of access that works, whether the student or researchers is at home, mobile or on-campus.

With fewer help desk calls related to password and access issues and lower rates of login attrition, your institution can benefit from Edugate access if it has not done so already by contacting HEAnet at 01 6609040 or noc@heanet.ie.
