The Higher Education Challenge

Education technology leaders nationwide are working overtime to manage the explosive growth of connected campus assets.


Large numbers of new student-centric assets connecting to university networks every day represent an expanding attack surface with amorphous perimeters. Ensuring those devices are visible, safe, and compliant is a growing challenge.

Data Protection in the Cloud

The explosion of assets on and off campus have left institutions unable to see their entire infrastructure, let alone defend it. Continued migration to the cloud, the move to BYOD, and issues like Log4j have exposed the hidden threat of outdated assets, both physical and in the cloud,  in educational institutions.

Regulatory Compliance

Medical universities and teaching hospitals need a holistic view that bridges the gap in securing new smart healthcare systems and legacy platforms for medical devices. This is particularly true in order to meet regulatory compliance guidelines when benefiting from federal funding and grant programs.

Asset Management and Security

Utilizing a whole-of-state approach with an agentless, cost-effective platform gives education institutions of all sizes shared insights, leading to reduced tech debt and more efficient services for their students, staff, and researchers.

OT/IoT on Campus

IoT technologies have changed how we teach and consume information, and many college and university IT environments are no longer separate from their OT environments. Reducing visibility gaps prevents compromised assets from acting as launching-off points for hackers to infiltrate portions of the network that house sensitive student, facility, and research data.
