Our SIF compliant Identity Management Solution can ultimately lead Districts to increased efficiency, lower administrative workload and maximum technology effectiveness.
Key Benefits & Features
Automates Provisioning of Student and Staff AccountsTo help simplify enrollment changes, the Identity Manager Agent automatically creates user accounts and moves them within the directory when necessary as students and staff enter the District or transfer between schools. When user accounts need to be deactivated, the Agent will move them to an appropriate location where they can be archived or purged by the District’s IT team. The Agent can also configure user account settings down to the school building, grade level and graduation year for students; and location and job code for staff.
Manages Active Directory Group MembershipsOur Identity Manager Agent can save the District’s IT team valuable time by managing the Active Directory group memberships for school buildings, student grade levels, graduation years, and staff job codes. It can also cleanly remove old group memberships as conditions change during the user account life cycle while preserving the option for the District’s IT team to manually assign specific user groups as needed.
Creates Home Directories on Network StorageThe Agent creates home directories automatically on network storage and offers a number of optional permission assignments. Network storage for home directories can even be split among multiple file servers based on various patterns, such as the last two digits of the local user’s id or letters in the user’s last name.
Seamlessly Manages Multiple Student EnrollmentsOur Identity Manager Agent can seamlessly manage multiple student enrollment locations. The Agent can configure student user account settings based on their enrollment location and enable or disable their campus access as needed.
Enforces Acceptable Use Policy for DistrictsThe signed Student and Staff Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) agreements for internet access and use of technology-based devices on district campuses can be managed and enforced by the Identity Manager Agent. The Agent can be configured to use student and staff signatures to determine user account activities and only create accounts that have a signed AUP agreement.
Enables Microsoft Exchange Email AccountsStudent and District Staff Microsoft Exchange email accounts can be automatically enabled and managed by the Mizuni Identity Manager Agent. Mailbox configuration can include a number of initialization parameters; and like home directories, the email mailbox storage can be split among multiple file servers based on various patterns, such as the last two digits of the local user’s id or letters in the user’s last name.
Automatically Renames User AccountsOur Identity Manager Agent can automatically rename user accounts when a name change or typo correction affects the Active Directory account name. Depending on the District’s processing requirements, the Agent can notify appropriate parties of the name change and schedule a time to rename the user account.
