Existing security solutions don’t work
Proven and economic security solutions for every type of educational institute
100% Data security and application control
made possible for the education sector
Complies with Data privacy laws
To evolve the learning experience, institutes are collecting more and more Data but at the same time, new Data protection laws pose challenges.
As stricter Data privacy laws have been put in place to protect the privacy of students, governments now expect educational institutes to have comprehensive cybersecurity and Data protection measures in place. Since our endpoint protection softwares operates at the file-level it ensures compliance as a natural output.
Gives proactive anti-virus protection
Reminding teachers and students to update their anti-virus software on their own devices and perform regular software patches is no easy feat.
As a result, educational institutes run the risk of exposing themselves to ransomware. SecureAPlus helps with proactive allow-listing and binding of Data so that only authorised people can access it, and unknown threats are denied by default. Traditional anti-malware systems only represent passive protection of known malware, which is too late.
Cybersecurity skill upgrading not required
Educational institutes are among the biggest users of Microsoft’s remote desktop protocol which connects computers online.
The problem however is misconfiguration is common, passwords are weak and as a result, RDP attacks are rising. SecureAPlus prevents both known and unknown threats from getting access to your network via student devices, and with The SecureAge Security Suite, all confidential files are protected at the file-level.
Data protection in all three states
The educational sector is a melting pot of Data including birth certificates, social security numbers, and intellectual property.
Protecting that Data is what we do best. Our endpoint protection software protects ALL files, every place, and every time. Alternative solutions only protect some of the Data some of the time (at-rest), focus on compliance in isolation, or add complexity that introduces risk. We protect files at-rest, in-transit, and in-use.
You’re in good company
We’ve been chosen to protect some of the world’s leading educational institutes who are recognising the need for file-level Data protection, and intuitive anti-virus protection.
