Case study: St Edmund's Catholic School use ScriptLogic's granular approach to protect user access

Separating students from teachers and teachers from other staff to ensure that all users had the correct access to the right files was a taxing process for St Edmund’s two-person IT department team. Using Desktop Authority, the IT staff could be as granular as necessary to ensure users were given access to permitted applications and files for their specific job role and could also track what was being downloaded, and which user was on which computer. The solution provided a high level of transparency for the IT department to help create patches for any problems that may occur and to ensure the computers were not misused.

St. Edmund’s Catholic School has almost 389 computers and 1,000 users. Separating students from teachers and teachers from other staff to ensure that all users had the correct access to the right files was a taxing process for St Edmund’s two-person IT department team. In addition, the school often had many pupils logging in at any one time, which frequently overloaded the connecting servers. ScriptLogic’s Desktop Authority provided the solution with a “point, click, done” approach.
