Schools continue to implement solutions that automate and assist them with their identity and access management issues.

LYNBROOK, New York – Oct. 14, 2013 — Tools4ever announced today that several secondary schools throughout the United States have implemented the company’s identity and access management solutions during the third quarter of 2013. The company’s solutions allow educational entities to automate their account management procedures and improve access and security of their internal systems.

Tools4ever currently serves hundreds of elementary, secondary, independent and higher educational institutions throughout the United States, providing password management, single sign-on and user management solutions. Tools4ever’s implemented solutions include Self Service Password Reset Management (SSPRM), Enterprise Single Sign-on Manager (E-SSOM) and User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA).

A partial list of the educational entities to employ the services of Tools4ever during the third quarter of 2013 includes:
• Beaufort County Schools — public school district, Beaufort, SC
• Tuscaloosa City Schools — public school district, Tuscaloosa, AL
• Auga Fria Unified School District — public school district, Avondale, AZ
• Frenship Independent School District — public school district, Wolfforth, TX
• East Greenbush Central Schools — public school district, East Greenbush, NY

Tools4ever’s UMRA is selected by educational entities because of its ability to connect with the leading student information systems and electronic learning environments including Banner, eSchool and Blackboard.

“UMRA allows school technology leaders to easily synchronize user accounts and data automatically, and eliminates manual management of the information,” said Dean Wiech, managing director of Tools4ever. “This, in turn, allows schools to reduce account pollution, and improve security of systems and applications, as well as save them much time and money.”

Educational entities also implement SSRPM and E-SSOM to allow them to easily manage student passwords and reduce calls to the helpdesk regarding password issues. E-SSOM allows students and employees to log in just once and thereafter be automatically signed into all applications launched, eliminating the need to remember several sets of credentials. In addition, SSRPM is also widely implemented by schools because it eliminates the need to contact the helpdesk by allowing users to securely reset their password themselves.

Tools4ever is a leader in the education IAM space and has carried out thousands of implementations of its products for educational entities. District Administration has named UMRA one of the top 100 educational IT products for 2011 and 2012. The acknowledgement is given to products that support exceptional educational innovation.
