Cyber security and data handling for the education sector

Cost-effective, simple and secure cloud solutions which are perfected for schools, colleges and universities.

Educators and students alike often comment that outdated, inflexible IT systems entrenched within their university or college frustrate them and often inhibit effective learning, remote working and collaboration. Also, outmoded IT often presents loopholes for hackers to exploit and places a significant strain on the IT Helpdesk personnel providing support.

    Recent Surveys & Findings

    In the Jisc Cyber Security Posture Survey 2018, UK universities and colleges were asked what they felt are the top cyber security threats they face. Phishing / social engineering ranked first, closely followed by ransomware / malware.

    Our advanced Endpoint Security provides the most comprehensive protection from cyber threats. UK universities and colleges are likely most worried about phishing because of the complexity of attacks and perceived lack of security awareness amongst users. Indeed, studies suggest that despite cyber security awareness training, 30% of phishing emails get opened & 12% of those users click on the malicious attachment / link.

    Phishing attacks can trick end users (via social engineering) into downloading malware onto their device. Our Endpoint Security protects staff and students from all forms of malware, it even protects them against ransomware by rolling back encrypted or deleted files to a safe state. Our best in class security solution also features:

    • Support for Windows, Mac OS and Linux based endpoints & servers.
    • ​​A team of highly trained security analysts dedicated to monitoring, analysing & remediating threats.
