HOUSTON, TX (PRWEB) July 06, 2016
Identity Automation, provider of the most scalable, full-lifecycle identity and access management (IAM) solution on the market, today announced that Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS) has selected RapidIdentity as a Service, an IAM suite hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to manage the identity and access of 55K students, staff and administrators. As CCPS continues to transition to the cloud, RapidIdentity will provide support for cloud-based learning applications, accelerate its one-to-one Chromebook initiative, and enhance overall security with a Single Sign-On (SSO) application portal.
CCPS' district-wide effort to advance cloud-based education technology adoption required an IDaaS solution that enables high availability for applications like Google Apps for Education and Microsoft Office 365, while also automating administrative processes. Identity Automation’s cost-effective solution allows the district to easily deploy cloud-based applications and tools at scale, automate the provisioning of active directories, protect personal data, and ensure that students and staff are able focus on learning and teaching, rather than troubleshooting technology and grappling with support issues.
As the district has transitioned its learning environment to cloud-based applications, RapidIdentity as a service has enabled the delivery of:
- Data security along with responsive access to information systems, instructional online applications, and technology services.
- Full identity lifecycle management, including automated provisioning and deprovisioning and handling change administration of all users, even contractors and other external users.
- A SSO application portal to allow teachers, students, staff, and external contractors to boost productivity with centralized access to many on-premises and cloud-based web applications.
- Identity and access support for One-to-One Chromebook and BYOD initiatives.
- Lower total cost of ownership by enabling CCPS to offload work to a managed service.
“CCPS is a prime example of a district that is making technology a priority and embracing the cloud to make the vision of the digital classroom a reality,” said James Litton, CEO of Identity Automation. “The need for a scalable, cost-effective, and seamless IDaaS solution has never been more integral for today’s educational organizations. With our RapidIdentity solution, the advantages of AWS, and the highly-scaleable and robust cloud infrastructure, we are able to provide CCPS with seamless and efficient technology tools to secure and advance their learning and classroom initiatives.”
