Managing Higher Education Cybersecurity: Think Holistically

Cyberattacks are evolving into an increasingly sophisticated for-profit business. Academic research, personal data, and disruption of operations provide attractive targets for both internet criminals and nation states. Colleges and universities must find ways to counter threats to these while maintaining a networking environment that fosters learning.


Flipbook | Ransomware Protection for Education: Building a Defense That Works

Ransomware has become a billion-dollar business, and all indications are that it will continue to grow rapidly. There is a good reason for this: ransomware attacks are simple and effective. Once ransomware—a type of malware—infects a device, it covertly encrypts data and renders files inaccessible. To free the system, the malware demands a ransom payment. You must choose: pay the ransom or attempt to recover your lost data through other means. Meanwhile, the ransomware may be spreading throughout your critical systems.


Gartner Competitive Landscape: Secure Web Gateways

The secure web gateway market is still transforming toward SaaS deployments as CASB and DNS services capabilities add new challenges to traditional providers. Technology strategic planners must pay attention to these new concepts to compete effectively in the future "as-a-service" market.

Security in Higher Education: A Model for the Modern Institution

Institutions of higher learning are responsible for providing a secure environment for their students, faculty and administrators to work and study. To protect personal information, intellectual property and other sensitive data from breach, universities must find a way to secure applications and data across an increasingly complex array of devices, applications, network connections and usage scenarios. At the same time, the institution must meet the demands of users for a simple, high-quality experience on any device they choose to use, including personal laptops, smartphones and tablets, wherever they work. The cost of failure can be high, from reputational damage, to regulatory fines, to the loss or compromise of valuable research. Layering point solutions onto an aging infrastructure only adds complexity without building strategically robust security. As the threat of malware, hacking and other attacks continues to rise, the need for a more comprehensive and effective approach is becoming urgent.
