The K-12 Challenge

Education technology leaders and school administrators nationwide are working overtime to manage the explosive growth of connected assets while securing their expanded attack surface.

Talent Shortages and Declining Budgets

IT teams face the constant challenge of doing more with less. As the attack surface grows and the demand for security teams expands, teams need tools that maximize their performance and reduce burden. Armis Centrix™ acts as a talent and budget force multiplier via automated detection and response using integrations with pre-existing security and reporting vendors.

Slow Technology Integration

The pace of integration is a problem in many industries, including education. Armis Centrix™ breaks the mold – IT leaders have Armis Centrix™ deployed and running within hours while school boards and superintendents are provided executive-level reporting to make informed decisions on future security budget needs.

Physical School Security

Cameras, badge readers, and automatic door-locking systems are mandatory on modern school campuses. Student and staff safety depends on ensuring these connected assets are deployed and not displaying anomalies, risks, and outages. Armis Centrix™ ensures your team always knows the status of every one of these assets.

Asset Management and Security

Education’s attack surface has expanded outside the perimeter of traditional visibility and control. Tracking which assets are deployed, how they are used, and their exposure to cyber risk is key to crafting an effective security posture.

OT/IoT Security

No institution is more important to the future prosperity and strength of the United States than our nation’s K–12 education system. Protecting your district’s infrastructure from malicious ransomware and IoT helps ensure teachers can keep teaching and students can keep learning.

Vulnerability Prioritization and Remediation

Work smarter, not harder. With high volumes of assets scattered across different departments and campuses, school districts need an end-to-end solution that hooks into their existing workflow to calculate risk scores – creating operational efficiencies to tackle incident response despite headcount or budget issues.

Contract Vehicles

Armis is proud to participate in several contract vehicles that simplify and streamline the procurement process for K-12 School Districts and Libraries.

K-12 School District Gains Full Visibility into Connected Assets

“At the time, there was no way to assess the total security of the district. Some campuses were more secure than others. What my team and I set out to do is to get a picture of what we were trying to protect and where the weak points were,” says Director of IT, Nguyen Bui.
