    PROTECT RESEARCH AND PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM ATTACKS

    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.
