Stay safe across all attack vectors, including email – a recognized top attack vector for educational institutions.

Phishing for threats

Recently, educational institutions have become a prime target for cybercriminals. Around six in ten (62%) higher education institutions experience breaches or attacks at least weekly.

Our powerful offerings help keep your organization safe across all attack vectors, including email – a recognized top attack vector for educational institutions that is responsible for ransomware attacks and fraudulent transfers of funds.

Cybersecurity is a 24/7 job

One of the biggest threats to the education sector is data theft. Educational institutions hold a substantial amount of sensitive staff and student data such as names, addresses, and payment information. For this reason, threat actors often target the education sector so that they can either sell confidential information to third parties or use it as a bargaining tool to extort money.

Unfortunately, the education sector doesn’t have the budgets, staff, or resources, to deploy a full end-to-end cybersecurity solution that detects threats in real time. That is why we have made it a commitment to redefine the industry and provide the education sector with a full end-to-end cybersecurity solution that provides real-time visibility around the clock.

Driven by technology, led by people

In addition to defending your network against the evolving attack surface, especially in the modern Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) era, educational institutions must also adhere to rigorous regulatory compliance standards including PCI DSS, GLBA, and HIPAA.

Having access to a dedicated team of cyber experts with whom you can actually speak has become a fundamental pillar of the SilverSky offering. We’re here to ensure that your organization remains secure by design – always available, always there to help.
