Protect Sensitive Data

We understand that safeguarding sensitive data, such as student details and reports or research work, is critical for you.  OFSTED are now reviewing the quality of your data protection policies routinely through their ongoing assessment program.  We can help you score well, by tracking sensitive data as users attempt to move it around, and also by securing data wherever it may be.

Unified Threat Management

We can help you to consolidate the number of solutions in order to realise cost savings, both in terms of licence costs, cost of support and the total cost of ownership. Our UTM can help by managing security from a single box, replacing the need to have multiple point solutions. We have helped some organisations who have saved on seven individual point solutions by moving their security and firewalling over to our UTM.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Bring your own device (BYOD) is currently the most common driver for new technology deployment. However, for already stretched IT departments in schools and colleges, this new move can present a major headache. What access should you grant an unmanaged device to your network? How can you protect users on your network when they are using an unmanaged device? Can you wipe a staff member's personal device if it is lost? What data is accessible using a device?

There is no simple answer to BYOD, but we can help you to securely implement a BYOD device strategy in a simple way. The benefits this could bring you are numerous, both in terms of overall cost savings, all the way through to improving lesson engagement.

Complete Security

Licensing can be a problem for universities and colleges, due to the disparate nature of their networks, and the departmental nature of their organisations. Our solutions are available via Eduserv and offer a full site licence, including staff and student licences. This means that you don't have to worry about keeping abreast of the number of devices you are managing. And you can be sure that you are getting a great deal and taking advantage of the overall sector purchasing power.
