Education Security: Data and Devices

Agentless Device Security for Educational Institutions

Securing Research, Data, and Devices in Higher Education

Managing security in Higher Education has never been more challenging. Students and faculty are adjusting to learning and working from home, leveraging their personal devices to remotely access ever expanding e-learning tools and curriculum. University researchers looking to innovate and collaborate with peers around the world are becoming prime targets for theft of patents, trade secrets, Intellectual Property, research, and sensitive information. And smart building automation from the classroom to the dormroom with thousands of servers, computers, tablets, connected sensors, thermostats and lights are becoming mainstream. Without the right cyber security solution, all of these devices can put  institutional intellectual property and students’ sensitive personal data at risk.

 

Safety First for K-12 Schools and Districts

K-12 schools and districts are relying more and more on technology making them prime targets for cybersecurity compromise. With remote learning becoming more commonplace, schools have become device and data-rich targets for cybercriminals. Cyberattacks on schools come in many forms, including breaches of student and educator data, identity theft, and money theft through email compromises. The challenge for most K-12 districts with limited IT and security staff becomes how to gain complete real time visibility and secure e-learning devices, without compromising the safety of sensitive personal data of students and educators.

Prevent Intellectual Property Theft and Protect Sensitive Student Data

Educational institutions have a vested interest in protecting their own intellectual property, but they also have obligations to protect students’ personal data as regulated by federal, state and local agencies. In order to comply with these regulations both higher education organizations and K-12 school districts need continuous and real-time device monitoring to manage their security risk.
