Case Studies: The UniFi Nerds in Action

Over the years, we’ve helped a range of businesses integrate UniFi Identity into their operations. Here are a couple of success stories:

  • UniFi Nerd Case Study 1: A large retail chain needed a system to manage access to their numerous locations efficiently. UniFi Identity was implemented, providing centralized control and enhanced security across all stores. The implementation of UniFi Identity allowed the chain to have one-click access to doors, WiFi, and VPN at all locations, streamlining the process for both employees and administrators. This also helped with managing software applications since UniFi Identity offers single sign-on cutting down on the number of passwords and login processes employees need to remember. Additionally, by bringing all door-related devices into the UniFi Identity platform, the chain was able to easily track and monitor access increasing overall security.In terms of scalability, UniFi Identity’s UID Interface allows for easy expansion and integration with new locations and devices. This means that as the retail chain grows and adds more stores, UniFi Identity can easily adapt to accommodate their needs without hindering their operations.Furthermore, using UniFi Identity also eliminates the need for separate access control systems at each location, reducing costs and streamlining management[1]. This has proven to be particularly beneficial for the chain, allowing for more efficient use of resources and cutting down on administrative tasks.

    Overall, by implementing UniFi Identity, the large retail chain was able to significantly improve their access management system, enhancing security, simplifying processes, and providing scalability for future growth.


  • UniFi Nerd Case Study 2: A bio startup with a growing remote workforce required a secure VPN solution. UniFi Identity’s One-Click VPN feature was a game-changer, facilitating safe and easy remote access. The bio startup company mentioned was in luck! UniFi Identity has a One-Click VPN feature that could be the perfect solution for their growing remote workforce. This feature not only provides a secure connection for remote access, but it also simplifies the process for employees to connect to the company’s network from any location.According to the UniFi Identity help center, One-Click VPN is automatically enabled once the requirements are met.  This means that once the company sets up their UniFi Consoles, which are used to manage their network, they will be able to utilize One-Click VPN without any additional set up. This not only saves time but also reduces the complexity for employees who may not be as tech-savvy.It is worth noting that not all remote workers need to use a VPN. However,  it is recommended to use a VPN for the added security and privacy. With UniFi Identity’s One-Click VPN, the company can ensure their remote employees have a secure connection to the network at all times, no matter where they are working from.
