Academic organisations have been using Athens technology for identity and access management since 1994.
OpenAthens is widely used by medical and health organisations both in the UK and worldwide for managing the identities of their staff, learners and researchers and for controlling access to valuable electronic resources.
OpenAthens services are utilised by numerous publishers providing online resources to learners and researchers.
OpenAthens is used by public sector organisations to allow access to research journals, books and databases provided by a range of publishers.
OpenAthens is used in commercial organisations both to control customer access to valuable resources (primarily publishers) and to manage the identities of employees who are accessing external (subscription-based) resources.
