Transforming Password Management In Education

NP education blog

Passwords are the predominant form of authentication and yet passwords frustrate the IT department, university staff and students within the education sector. A considerable amount of time that can be devoted to high-value tasks is spent to resolve password issues. Thus, there is an excessive burden on the helpdesk as the IT staff are providing assistance to hundreds of university members concurrently, further escalating IT cost.

What is more, dealing with the internal structure of password management can become a bothersome and tedious task for university staff and students as they are having to wait for a prolonged period of time until their password request is handled by the helpdesk. This means that they cannot access any critical resources that they need, when they need it, due to their accounts being blocked.

A technological shift in education

The past few years have seen a rapid technological growth where the power has shifted from technology providers to end users. Technology is a powerful enabler, delivering and enhancing communication methods as well as becoming a profound service provider, consciously serving consumers in today’s software-fuelled modern society.

Software’s such as Access Manager self-service password management certainly empowers end users by giving them complete control of their own account. The end user experience becomes hassle-free by eliminating the constant contact with the IT department and deducting unnecessary waiting time and cost. University staff and students can change passwords, unlock accounts and reset passwords at their own accord.
