Tools4ever, the worldwide market leader in identity and access management solutions, announced today that several school districts, secondary schools and universities throughout the United States have implemented the company’s identity and access management solutions during the fourth quarter of 2013.

The educational entities implemented Tools4ever’s solutions to automate their account management procedures and to improve access and security of their internal solutions. Tools4ever serves hundreds of elementary, secondary and post-secondary educational institutions throughout the United States with password management solutions including Self Service Password Reset Management (SSPRM) and Enterprise Single Sign-on Manager (E-SSOM), as well as a user management solution, User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA).

A partial list of educational entities that have added Tools4ever’s solutions during the fourth quarter of 2013 include:

  • Geneva College – a Catholic college in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania
  • High Point University—a private college in High Point, North Carolina
  • Lowndes County Board of Education – a public school district in Valdosta, Georgia
  • Woodbridge Board of Education – a public school district in Woodbridge, New Jersey

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

“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-East. “The system also allows schools to reduce account pollution, and improve security of systems and applications.”

Educational entities implement SSRPM and E-SSOM to allow them to easily manage student passwords and reduce calls to the helpdesk. E-SSOM allows users to login just once and thereafter be automatically signed into all applications launched, eliminating the need to remember several sets of credentials for the many applications they use.

SSRPM is also widely implemented because of its ability to eliminate the need to contact the helpdesk. Users are able to proactively reset there password themselves after answering their security questions.
