Challenges for Deploying Cybersecurity in Education
A tech-driven school district serving over 10,000 students from preschool to high school recently sought a new cybersecurity solution to enhance its digital security measures. The district recognized that they were growing and needed to prioritize digital security to protect their students, employees and IT environment.
The school district faced numerous challenges with its previous SIEM lacking visibility in its security measures, which made it difficult to monitor network traffic effectively and promptly identify potential cyber threats. One particular concern for the district was students using VPNs on personal devices, which can obfuscate traffic. All this in mind during their search, the district chose the Adlumin Security Operations Platform due to its ease of use as it was crucial to ensure that the district’s IT team could efficiently monitor and respond to potential threats all from one centralized platform.
