Education institutions are targeted by attackers for their intellectual property, their staff and students personal information, and credit card data. This is costing the sector millions of dollars and damaging institutions' reputations.
Colleges and universities collect and process a high volume of sensitive data from students, faculty, staff and the general public through their admissions, student loans, and campus retail establishments. Most institutions take credit card payments, while some hold sensitive research and intellectual property, making them prime targets for attackers – from organized criminals to state–sponsored attackers.
We understand the unique security needs of your industry. Find out how we can put that insight to work for you.
Reduce your exposure to threats by identifying risks across servers, endpoints, mobile devices and web assets. Prioritize vulnerabilities for remediation with Nexpose, test your defenses with Metasploit Pro, and assess the security of modern web applications with AppSpider.
Every day an attacker is on your network, the more sensitive data from students, faculty, and alumni is at risk. Rapid7 can bring down the time it takes for you to detect the attack from months to a matter of hours. If you want our expert team monitoring 24/7 and helping you through the remediation, Managed Detection and Response is right for you. If you have the team in place to handle it, InsightIDR can accelerate the team's detection rates.
Education institutes need an effective security program to protect personal information and intellectual property from threats. Our Security Advisory Services can help you map your security program to best practices and compliance requirements, and recommend tactical and strategic initiatives for measurable progress.
