Zunia defines school data security providing cutting-edge “security by design” in a leading school software solution. With granular, centrally managed permission groups and customisability, Zunia allows educational institutions to finely tune access and control, ensuring only that the right individuals have access to critical student information.

How does it work?

Zunia’s school software permissions operates seamlessly by employing a two-fold approach to permission management.


First, it utilises managed permission groups, which categorise users into specific roles or categories, each with predefined access levels. This ensures that individuals, whether they are teachers, students or administrators, are automatically granted appropriate permissions without the need for manual adjustments.


Second, Zunia’s custom permissions feature allows for school leaders and administrators to fine-tune access rights down to the minutest detail. This means that schools can effortlessly adapt the software to their specific requirements, ensuring that every user has precisely the permissions needed for their role.

What are the benefits of school software with permissions?

Zunia’s cchool software permissions feature makes it easy to apply access rights to users based on their roles. Administrators can assign permissions swiftly and accurately, reducing the risk of data breaches or misuse and complying with your school data & privacy policies As the school's needs evolve, permissions can be easily adjusted to accommodate changes. This adaptability ensures that the software continues to meet the school's evolving requirements.

Customisable access control

Schools have the flexibility to tailor permissions precisely to the needs of their users. Whether it's teachers, students, or staff members, each group can have permissions customised to their specific requirements, ensuring a seamless and productive experience. Schools can precisely define who can access specific data and what actions they can perform, like viewing or updating. This fine-grained control adds an extra layer of security, ensuring that sensitive information remains protected while allowing for flexibility in tailoring access to the needs of the school.
