HENNGE Adds Employee Education Cloud Service “AirCourse” to the linkage solutions of HENNGE One 2022.11.08
HENNGE K.K. (headquarters: Shibuya, Tokyo, Representative Director, Chief Executive Officer: Kazuhiro Ogura, “HENNGE”) is pleased to announce that its Saas authentication platform (IDaaS), “HENNGE One”, now supports “AirCourse”, an employee education cloud service for companies provided by KIYO Learning Corporation.
This collaboration was made possible through KIYO Learning’s affiliation with the “HENNGE One Product Alliance Program”, operated by HENNGE, based on mutual verification.
The required skills for employees have changed drastically in recent years. “Reskilling”, or relearning to acquire new skills, in particular, have gained increased importance. Since then, Saas E-learning has been adopted widely as a method of reskilling, as it enables employees to easily learn regardless of time and location. However, managing IDs and passwords has been challenging to companies due to the increased number of Saas applications used by employees.
By linking HENNGE One and AirCourse, companies using HENNGE One will benefit from single sign-on to AirCourse without the hassle of managing multiple IDs and passwords. Along with that, users are able to utilize AirCourse safely while preventing the risk of unauthorized access through HENNGE One's access control features based on multi-factor authentication such as IP control and device certificates. HENNGE will continue to increase the number of SaaS that are linked with HENNGE One to support companies’ convenient and secured adoption of SaaS.
