Are you prepared for the latest cybersecurity challenges?

Cybersecurity is no game. Get your team warmed up to strike a triple play against malware, ransomware, and other threats from the cloud. Recent headlines have revealed a new league of cyber threats exploding on a global scale—and the risk to schools, colleges, and universities is only going to grow. Today’s hackers are big league. They seek to profit from the data they’re able to steal—student and faculty records, research data, even credit card information. Holding stolen information through ransomware is one way they’ve found to reap financial gains. It’s time to come out and swing for the fences to fight back.

Collaboration Wins the Day with Mobile Strategies

Many campuses, regardless of size, face difficulty in implementing mobile solutions. You might be at a larger campus with extensive staffing and expertise, but you can't get everyone on the same page. Or maybe you work on a smaller campus, have great intentions to go mobile but don't have the right resources. What's the secret sauce that makes it work? Collaboration? Justin Hammond and Leslie Dare spearheaded a mobile initiative at NC State that epitomizes how campus partnerships can win the day.

Better Prepare Your Campus Against the Evolving Threatscape

Today’s dispersed higher education environments are in critical need of effective security strategies to help address persistent cyber threats and become better prepared to defend against a greater and more varied landscape of threats.

Managing The Integrated Student Cloud

As more and more applications migrate to the Cloud, the challenge of maintaining an integrated ecosystem grows increasingly difficult, and essential. New product categories like Integration Platform as a Service (iPaas) help streamline the spiderweb of traditional point-to-point integrations while shifting the effort from the shoulders of high-skill engineering resources to the fingertips of ‘citizen developers’ with no-code, drag-and-drop interfaces. These new solutions will give institutions the tools they need to define their portfolio-wide student ecosystem, and allow Oracle to deliver out-of-the-box integrations so that schools can concentrate resources on mission critical projects.

Meeting Student Needs with Day One Access to Digital Materials

eTextbooks have emerged over the past 10 years as a cost-effective and more engaging option to print textbooks. Delivering these digital materials on the first day of classes sets students up for success.

Oregon State University Accelerates Virtual Learning Labs & 3D Graphics for Students Around the World

Oregon State University has over 30,000 students and is well known for its distance education program, with more than 47% of students out of state or international. The OSU College of Engineering needed to provide an on-campus, lab-like experience anytime on any device. With virtualization from Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop and virtual graphics acceleration from NVIDIA GRID, the IT team is able to deliver heavy graphics and compute applications like AutoCAD, MatLab, and Cadence for students around the world.

Diving into Drupal: Princeton’s Multi-site Migration Success with Open-source

Princeton University’s web team had a complex and overwhelming digital ecosystem comprised of many different websites, created from pre-built templates and hosted exclusively on internal servers. Fast forward six years: Princeton continues to manage a their multisite and flagship endeavors on the open-source Drupal platform, and have seen some great results since their migration back in 2011. However, this success did not come overnight. Organizational buy-in, multi-site migration and authentication were a few of the many challenges Princeton ran into when making the decision to move to the cloud.
