Southeast Community College (SCC) in Lincoln, Nebraska, needed an easier method for managing user authentication to the web portal that delivers its powerful learning management system and other important applications. Their challenges are to provide inflexible, server-based authentication solution, difficult access to web portal and manual updates to public access systems. They chose F5 to overcome these challenges. They have implemented BIG-IP 1500, BIG-IP 3900 and BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM). The results of implementing F5 were rapid deployment at a critical time, reliable portal access, centralized policy management solution and scalable platform for growth of online offerings.
