Information Security for Education

IT security for the education sector with vulnerability and patch management solutions

Educational institutions collect, process, and share a massive volume of data as part of daily campus administration. This ranges from student medical, billing, and academic records; to public submissions, faculty processes, staff communication, and retail collaborations. All of this sensitive information means that education network security is of increasing importance.

The very nature of this environment – where social media-friendly students regularly document everyday life online – makes universities, colleges, training facilities, and schools prime targets for cybercriminals. You may think that your campus network is secure, however if just one private PC that has been compromised by a vulnerability exploit logs on, this can compromise the information stored on your entire IT infrastructure.

With the number of vulnerabilities targeting endpoints increasing, network and endpoint security are critical issues for education institutions to address. Compliance regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) help institutions with clear guidelines on how to guard against potential information security breaches, theft of student/faculty data, and fraud.

See how our network security solutions for educational facilities help you adhere to necessary information security compliance regulations:
