Meet both library and information technology needs
EZproxy and EZproxy Analytics use robust security rules, integrate into many identity and access management infrastructures, and are fully managed by OCLC so IT teams can effortlessly and securely help libraries provide access to their e-resources and gain insights.
Transform your security approach
As cyber attacks become more frequent and sophisticated, it’s critical that you collaborate across library departments to mitigate them. EZproxy facilitates this collaboration with a robust and customizable rules engine that automatically detects compromised single sign-on credentials in real-time. EZproxy provides swift notification about a breach and turns off account access before any systems are compromised. Library staff can then access evidence to investigate the cause and augment rules to strengthen security protocols.

Support identity and access goals
EZproxy and EZproxy Analytics seamlessly integrate into your identity and access management infrastructure to provide single sign-on e-resource access and insights while abiding by your security standards. EZproxy connects to most identity management systems and supports many authentication schemes, including LDAP, SIP, CAS, SAML, and Shibboleth. It can also be configured to grant group access rights based on licensing needs and strategic goals, and EZproxy Analytics can show how these groups use e-resources.
