Understanding When to Choose a Workstation vs. PCs in Higher Education

Technological innovations that were experimental, risky and cost-prohibitive just a few years ago are rapidly and widely being adopted in our workplaces, scientific and artistic pursuits, and learning institutions. Colleges and universities seek to take best advantage of such fast-changing technology as they compete for gifted students and high-profile faculty. Digital curricula and the complex computing requirements that result when learning is enhanced with virtual reality, 3D modeling and data intensive applications can be challenging and costly to accommodate. However, solid, powerful, proven workstation technology that relies on the most advanced capabilities of modern operating systems and hardware components empowers students to develop skills that allow them to contribute in a digital economy, no matter what career choice they make. Download this white paper from Dell and Intel® to help you understand when you should choose a workstation versus a PC for higher education courses.

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.
