CALGARY, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Hitachi ID Systems is pleased to announce that it has closed in the last quarter a
significant number of large Identity Management and Privileged Access

fully integrated end-to-end IDM solutions provide peace of mind to
education institutions looking for effective access controls, user
authentication, password management and compliance.”
