Icon recommend OpenAM to Colleges and Universities when possible. The reasons being the OpenAM :
Authentication based on dynamic, context-based access that is responsive to user location, time zone, device, IP address, time of day, and more, providing endless personalization possibilities and mitigation of risk. This is especially pertinent in universities with campuses across the globe.
Authorization that allows users to access applications and services based on permissions and policies defined by using our policy engine tools
Federation and single sign-on with a single identity, allowing users to access services that span the cloud and mobile devices, on premises and off. This solves any multi-lateral federation or InCommon integrations that an institution may have
Adaptive risk that combines contextual information to evaluate the risk of users (especially students) attempting to access resources and, if they are deemed suspicious, require a higher level of authentication or identity-proofing
