With new standards and increased expectations for data safety, it’s critical that higher education institutions have a plan to safeguard their data, student information and infrastructure.
A 2022 Insight and Industry Dive survey asked 100 higher education IT decision-makers about their modernization plans for the coming year, and more than half responded that data security and cybersecurity were among their top priorities.
And, campus resource optimization is critical to the success of these security updates. With limited budgets and the continued learning curve of hybrid and remote learning, many higher education IT teams are already stretched to their full capacity.

How fast will you recover from a cybersecurity event?
It’s impossible to prevent every cybersecurity attack, and time is precious when identifying and responding to an incident. The more time that passes, the more damage will be done.
Insight Public Sector helps accelerate incident response times by optimizing automation, resources and processes. Our incident response solution includes forensic analysis that identifies the root cause of the issue and a long-term solution to protect against similar threats in the future.
How machine learning enhances endpoint protection
As the number of devices on campus continues to grow, securing them becomes a greater challenge. Thankfully, a modernized system can help you manage these increasing risks.
Insight Public Sector’s endpoint management solution condenses multiple capabilities into a single system, streamlining management. It monitors activity across all devices, watching for minor fluctuations in behavior. Using a continuous collection of endpoint data, machine learning programs analyze behaviors and alert you to suspicious activity.
