A leading global cybersecurity firm helps to protect education and non-profit sectors from cyberattacks as traditional anti-virus solutions cannot prevent unknown threats which continue to surge
April 16, 2021 - SecureAge Technology, a leading global data and endpoint protection company, announced the launch of its Grant Program which was introduced to help educational institutions and non-profit organizations safeguard their endpoints amid the growing number of cyberattacks. The grant program aims to create a safer and more productive environment for research and learning as traditional anti-virus solutions are only able to catch known threats and do not offer personalised protection. SecureAge’s grant initiative will give recipient schools, students, and non-profit entities access to SecureAPlus, an intuitive endpoint protection software that can detect known and unknown threats, at no cost.
Schools and non-profits are target rich environments for bad actors, as evidenced by recent cyberattacks. As these institutes are often operating under budgetary constraints cybersecurity ends up being an afterthought for both sectors. That’s why SecureAge’s grant program was introduced. It alleviates the major threat vectors faced by both sectors by outfitting recipient organisations with an AI-powered endpoint protection solution that can defend systems from both known and unknown threats, file or file-less malware, and attacks from within or outside the network.
‘Schools and non-profits have long been widely targeted because both tend to be underfunded and under trained when it comes to data protection measures and cybersecurity hygiene,’ said Dr. Teow Hin Ngair, Founder & CEO, SecureAge Technology. ‘We firmly believe that organizations of all sizes deserve greater access to tools that can offer effective protection from cyber threats, giving them the confidence they need to operate safely without worrying about being cybersecurity experts in the process. Our grant program will help these organizations achieve those goals while also easing the budgetary burdens associated with safeguarding user data from internal and external cyber threats.’
Last year, the FBI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued a joint statement, warning that 57% of reported ransomware attacks targeted the education sector. And a recent report from the Non-profit Technology Enterprise Network (NTEN) stated that 80% of non-profits don’t have a policy in place to address cybersecurity incidents.
‘The pandemic induced shift to remote work and distance learning has given bad actors an advantage, resulting in more focused and more creative attacks that exploit new and existing cybersecurity weaknesses,’ added Dr. Ngair.
Any educational institution or non-profit organization that signs up to be a partner of SecureAge’s Grant Program will get unlimited SecureAPlus Pro licenses for all Windows workstations and servers in their respective schools and offices. Individuals that sign up for a SecureAPlus Portal (SAPPortal) account using their school or non-profit company email domain will enjoy a 4-year SecureAPlus Essentials license, when they add their PC or laptop to the device list.
SecureAPlus is an AI-enabled endpoint protection software for Windows & Android that safeguards devices against multiple attack vectors including malware threats and zero-day attacks from within or outside an organization’s network. SecureAPlus offers application control, multiple cloud-base anti-virus scanners, policy control and multi-PC management. These features are backed by SecureAge’s APEX AI-powered engine which is designed to spot and learn from malicious attack patterns on endpoints without relying on definition updates.

About SecureAge Technology
SecureAge Technology is a rapidly growing data security company that places security and usability on equal footing. Headquartered in Singapore, we are trusted by governments, research institutes, and forward-thinking organizations to protect them from the most advanced and persistent cyber threats in the world. What makes SecureAge different, is we have built a reputation for data-centric and intuitive security solutions that protect data not only when it is stored, but also when it is in use, and in transit. We’ve achieved this by holding strong reign on our belief that users shouldn’t have to become cybersecurity experts to escape data liabilities. Instead, encryption should be inherent, invisible, and instinctive. To protect data when it is most vulnerable, security must take place at the file-level, operate silently in the background, and support the way in which people collaborate. That’s why our users can divert their resources to focus on other challenges – SecureAge users enjoy 100% file-level security, every file, every place, and every time.
