Security software should be a priority for any school, college or university who are dependent on IT and online systems. There are many threats on the internet and users who are not protected against them may encounter problems. This is especially important in the education sector as students are more likely to be unaware of what dangers are on the internet.
At a minimum these threats can affect the browsing experience, but a more severe attack could mean that students lose work and miss out on precious instruction hours or that a student’s digital records become vulnerable, and the reputation of the education institution is at risk.
A reliable security software such as iolo offers a range of features to protect the IT infrastructure from viruses and spyware without unnecessary add-ons or background activities that would slow the network down.
Balancing the wide range of devices on the establishments network often brings the biggest difficulties. With a mix of school provided and student owned equipment which includes new and old devices running different operating software it’s important to find security software that offers flexibility such as Wondershare Recoverit.
Another thing to consider is the vulnerability of devices that sensitive data is stored on. Student data, financial information, and intellectual property is shared among departments and often users are connecting via unsecured networks and devices. Both of the above software packages will give ample protection across the entire school network and devices.
Cybercrime is on the rise and protecting the sensitive data of students has never been more important. However, deciding on a security software is difficult without adequate resources or expertise. Edtech Direct has over 15 years of experience in sourcing security software for the education sector and their team are highly trained to guide you through the steps and answer any questions about the security software available.
