Cybersecurity Solutions for Education
The dichotomy of maintaining network security while also preserving communication and the free exchange of information presents educational institutions with a unique set of obstacles. Meanwhile, challenges such as IT talent shortages and insufficient funding for cybersecurity projects have educational institutions searching for solutions to secure their environments in the face of new risks.
Applications are the textbooks of the 21st century, and educational institutions require applications and networks to provide content, educate students and reduce operational costs. The growth in online services and web-based content introduces new security challenges to districts and universities that must ensure 24x7 access to online services and protect student records.
According to Radware’s annual Global Application and Network Security Report, education security professionals must overcome three primary obstacles: application and network availability, protecting sensitive data and lack of expertise and resources to manage cybersecurity protection.
