Laying the Groundwork for a Consistent and Effective Security Foundation

The Education environment is complex and is often faced with fewer resources for IT security. Distance learning, online collaboration, and video conferencing have become an intrinsic part of teaching from elementary (K-12) schools through universities. The COVID pandemic forced schools and universities to further adapt to multiple devices connecting to their networks from multiple locations. As a result, the device ecosystems supporting these transformations have had to evolve from traditional IT infrastructure to consumer technologies.

Higher Education environments that include administrative, academic, and research functions typically present a challenge when it comes to knowing what is out there and how it is protected. Many K-12 schools and universities lack a cohesive infrastructure and a consistent approach to security in their environment. 

K-12 environments that have a less robust cybersecurity framework can leverage a solution like Armis to simplify their environment and take the risk out of knowing what enters, exists, and extends your vulnerability so your teams can do more with less. Armis helps bring consistency to a view of what exists in the environment within all segments without adding to the laborious task of updating and installing agents.
