Does the thought of your school getting hacked, infected with a virus or suffering a ransomware attack keep you up at night? If it does, (or you’re just looking for better cyber security), we have the answer!
In simple terms, this security software provides protection for your computer and digital information from various online threats. You can think of it as a digital bodyguard that keeps an eye on your computer and data to ensure safety. It offers protection in three main areas:
When you browse the internet, our software scans the websites you visit and blocks potentially dangerous ones. This helps protect you from phishing scams, which are attempts to trick you into revealing sensitive information like passwords or credit card details and other online threats.
Our software includes a firewall feature that monitors your internet connection and blocks unauthorised access to your computer. This helps prevent hackers and other malicious actors from breaking into your system and stealing your data.
Implementing this solution takes the task of securing and protecting your network off your hands, allowing you to focus on what schools do best – teaching and learning.
Update 20/03/2023: We are now making this mandatory, (alongside cloud backups), on all of the servers we support on behalf of our schools, as required by the DfEs Meeting digital and technology standards in schools and colleges which states:
To meet data protection legislation all IT systems and services must be ‘secure by design’.
You need to make sure your servers and related storage platforms are secure and risks are minimised when you buy, install and use them. This makes sure that systems and data are safe from any potential risks of damage or data loss. This could include:
- physical damage to the server such as flooding or fire
- virtual damage caused by a cyber attack or incident
- human error through poor management
