We are trusted by schools across Ireland to keep their systems safe.
Your school needs extra-secure IT systems. As well as holding a lot of confidential data, there are issues of online safeguarding for your young users.
We work closely with schools and colleges to ensure they have robust, multi-layered security systems, with secure, backed-up storage.
Expert security & backup services for education
Make sure you have the right tools to protect your school’s network.
Today’s school IT systems need a carefully managed, multi-layered approach to security. As attacks become more sophisticated, it’s up to us to make sure we have exceptionally robust protection.
We work with educational establishments across the country to make sure they are as safe as possible from cyber threats. We can audit your existing systems, make recommendations, then install sophisticated antivirus software, firewalls and filtering solutions. We can also advise the admin team in data and online security management.
Robust security solutions for education
There are plenty of ways to protect your systems
Here’s how we can help keep your school cyber-safe:
- Antivirus software. We install ESET on school and college systems. It’s fast, powerful and easy to manage, and alerts the administrator as soon as any infections are detected
- Firewall. This layer scans internet traffic for potential infections, stopping them before they reach the laptops and PCs on your network
- Email spam filtering. Because email remains the most common source of network infections, a spam filter is essential. This can either be on your own server or through a third-party provider, depending on your system
- Secure backups. If you do get hit by ransomware, you’ll be able to restore from your backups. The backup can be server or cloud-based, or both
Secure online backup
If a problem occurs, all is not lost…
Backing up your files on the server and in the cloud protects you from both accidental loss and ransomware. You’re guarded from hardware or software malfunctions and deletions (we’re only human) as well as malicious attacks.
