Public and private K-12 institutions, college and universities rely on Adlumin to detect and contain threats before they disrupt classrooms and academic programs, steel student and financial data, abscond with research data and intellectual property, and divert finite funds from learning services to expensive cyber incident clean-ups and recoveries. What’s more, attacks on colleges and universities often affect the institutions ability to solicit funding, endowments or donations from alumni or loyal philanthropists.
Leaders in education technology have continued to face sophisticated cybersecurity challenges. Microsoft reported that education recently accounted for over 80% of enterprise malware. Data breaches, ransomware attacks and other cyber incidents carry the potential for significant financial damage or student and faculty PII exposure. Higher education is also grappling with the need to protect research information and research budgets while also meeting increased compliance requirements that come with sponsored research.
Adlumin’s platform provides educational tech leaders and organizations with the means to have an active SOC, focused on reporting benefits, including quick and effective response, decreased costs of breaches and operations, active threat prevention, improved communication and coordination with 24×7 availability of security expertise.
