“Through UMRA’s scripting interface, we are able to securely drive password management down to the school level, giving our teachers the tools they need to get students back online.”- Derry Lyons, Director of IT Services at South Kitsap School District
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 08, 2012
Tools4ever, the market leader in Identity and Access Management solutions, is pleased to announce that South Kitsap School District has implemented User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA). South Kitsap is a K-12 district located in Port Orchard, Washington. It currently encompasses a comprehensive grade 10 though12 high school, 10 elementary schools, 3 junior highs, and 2 alternative schools and serves over 9,500 students with 1,200 employees. The district decided to implement UMRA to improve efficiency and have the ability to easily work with new technology, such as Dropbox.
Prior to utilizing UMRA, South Kitsap had an in house solution in place, which they had outgrown due to its inability to complete tasks such as defining instructional folders. They also needed a way to make their account management more efficient and less time consuming. Now, with UMRA in place, the HR department simply enters a student or employee into the system, and UMRA creates an exchange email account, home directory and adds them to the appropriate security group within a day, with minimal human intervention. UMRA was also customized to manage accounts in Dropbox so that students could safety and easily submit assignments and help with password management for teachers.
