At one time the goal of K-12 school IT staffs was to lock down systems to prevent their use. That’s no longer the case. Today, you must protect your systems and network against a barrage of known and emerging threats to ensure their continued use. You must enable education — within the unique time and resource constraints typical of K-12 school IT staffs.
Sophos knows protection and we understand your challenges as a K-12 school IT staff.
We can help you:
Centrally manage multiple platforms
Our consolidated management console allows you to defend every endpoint on more than 25 platforms, including Windows, Macintosh, Linux, NetWare and Unix. Plus, it automatically updates and centrally manages antivirus and client firewall.
Protect students and staff anytime, anywhere
Education doesn’t stop when the school bell rings. Sophos monitors and controls updates to continually protect students and staff, even when they connect to the school network from home or the coffee shop. And all enterprise-wide licenses include protection for staff home computers.
Eliminate malware and offensive content
Sophos Email Protection integrates antivirus, anti-spam and policy enforcement capabilities to protect students without restricting freedom of communication.
Enable safe, productive web browsing
Protect your network from dangerous websites and easily enforce acceptable Internet use policies. Sophos Web Protection prevents infection from web-based threats including spyware, viruses, worms, unwanted applications and offensive content.
Enforce web controls
Simply blocking prohibited content isn’t enough. You must also prevent students and staff from bypassing security controls. Our anonymizing proxy detection does this; it prevents users from bypassing web filters. It can also control HTTPS-encrypted channels to help ensure networks are not infected via personal webmail accounts.
Maximize your resources
Constant protection should not hamper productivity — for you or your end users. We send automatic updates to ensure a consistent level of protection against new threats. Plus, updates are small and fast to minimize the impact on network performance.
Get expert help anytime you need it
Our network threat analysis centers provide 24/7 detection and protection from known and emerging threats. Plus, 24/7 technical support is available at no extra charge from local teams that speak your language.
We have a price sheet specifically for K-12 schools in your country so you get the protection you need at a price that fits your budget.
Control Wireless Access
With our Wireless Security Solution and Wireless Access Points schools can provides a secure wireless connection throughout campus or select locations such as libraries, all managed through our UTM interface.
Connect and protect your remote locations

Our branch office security product makes it possible to connect these satellite buildings without increasing administrative costs or management times.
