The education sector faces a diverse range of challenges.
The influx of new technologies, cloud computing and demands for new work styles from both students and staff have made the control of users and assets more complex than ever – more so given the high turnover of users in any one institution.
Increasing student fees have also created higher expectations, so universities and colleges are under pressure to remain competitive while tackling increasingly complicated IT concerns.
ThirdSpace understands how crucial your technology choices are, and how critical your infrastructure is in maintaining your operations.
From processing new student applications to maintaining alumni relationships, we have comprehensive experience with many of the UK’s leading educational institutions and can create an IT solution tailor-made for your needs.
Educational institutions deal with huge volumes of data and can struggle during seasonal peaks when high levels of admissions, account activations and administration puts strain on outdated IT systems and staff who rely on time-consuming and error-prone paper-based procedures.
At the same time, organisations are expected to remain competitive with cutting edge technology, all the while reducing IT spending.
Our solutions make it easy to securely streamline your processes.
Microsoft Identity Manager and other products, such as Access Centre B2E Activation, allow universities and colleges to automate the provisioning and de-provisioning of accounts and power a secure account activation process for students.
Plus you can control user entitlements and mitigate security risks posed by unmanaged IT accounts.

Meanwhile, Enterprise Mobility + Security, part of the Microsoft 365 technology stack, includes tools such as Intune, offering security and control over external user devices without compromising experience or protection.
Students and staff remain productive, with easy device enrolment and single sign-on to their favourite apps, but in a controlled environment. And you have the ability to quickly remove user accounts and devices, remotely wipe data, and identify security breaches before they have time to inflict any serious damage.
