The Institute of Technical Education (ITE) is a principal provider of career and technical education in Singapore, and a key developer of occupational skills certification. It has 25,000 full-time students and 8,000 part-time adult learners.
ITE’s Web portal is a vital tool for communication and collaboration between students, staff and faculty. To safeguard the integrity and availability of the portal and associated data, ITE must prevent access by unauthorised individuals. With a constantly evolving student community, ITE must balance its robust security requirements with simple administration.
ITE has been using CA SiteMinder to authenticate portal users for nearly 10 years. The solution provides single sign-on access to more than 10 different key applications, including elearning, email and student administration. The solution authenticates up to 26,000 users every day.
CA SiteMinder helps ITE provide seamless and secure access to learning materials and resources, which enhances the online experience for students and staff. The institute has also been able to simplify IT management and upgrade its portal to make it more user-friendly.
