Cirrus Identity makes it easier for your “external” users to access your online services and research projects. Cirrus solutions help increase user engagement, decrease tech support/costs, and enable organizations to easily scale their operations. Our most popular product, the Cirrus Gateway Service, enables organisations to quickly and easily leverage the use of social identities (Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) for login access to virtual research groups, learning management systems, alumni communities, and parent portals and more. Our Gateway integrates easily with Apereo’s Sakai product. We also offer a hosted SAML bridge that can integrate with a local instance of Apereo’s CAS service, so you can get a SAML identity provider up and running without adding new infrastructure and ongoing support expense. In addition to hosted SaaS solutions, Cirrus can assist with identity management strategy and planning.
