Lynbrook, NY (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
Tools4ever, the market leader in Identity and Access Management solutions, is pleased to announce that Colby Sawyer College has implemented User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA) and Self Service Reset Password Management (SSRPM). Colby Sawyer College is a comprehensive baccalaureate institution that integrates liberal arts and sciences with professional preparation. The college implemented UMRA to automate account management and ensure that everybody had the correct security settings. They also utilize SSRPM so students could quickly deal with their password issues without contacting the IT department.
Colby Sawyer had been manually batch processing accounts, and needed a way to improve the efficiency of account management in order to introduce distance learning and online courses. Tools4ever was able to quickly implement the solutions and integrate UMRA with the college’s student information system, Power Campus. This allows them to only have to enter student or employee information into their SIS and accounts are automatically created, changed or deleted each night. With SSRPM users can easily click the ‘forgot my password’ button and securely reset their password without contacting the helpdesk. Both solutions have allowed Colby Sawyer’s IT department to focus their time on new technologies, such as a student portal.
Lisa Windsor, Applications Analyst at Colby Sawyer College stated, “Accounts are automatically de-provisioned in a timely manner, rather than having to wait to get a notice, which can be a few days later. This has greatly improved the security of our systems.”
