The OpenAthens Federation is the only international federation in the world and the only one that allows membership from any sector. Join our 2,600 strong OpenAthens Federation and expand access to more than 4 million users worldwide in the academic, government, healthcare, pharmaceutical and corporate markets.
Our cloud-based solutions enable access to the OpenAthens Federation and other federations around the world. We work with other access management federations on international technical standards and best practice so that our products and services can be used in federations in different countries. Hosted in multiple global regions, our cloud-based services provide a fast and reliable connection to your digital content.
Members of the OpenAthens Federation sign up to and agree to policies around the secure exchange of user information (or attributes), providing assurances that users accessing your content are from one of your subscribing organisational customers. This data is encrypted and exchanged in the cloud, adding an additional security layer and ensuring a secure connection between the user and the content they have subscribed to.
Our services are ISO 27001 compliant and as part of our federation service, we check security certificates and run regular penetration tests to mitigate against cybersecurity attacks.Contact us for more information
