Higher Education

Today’s Education Is Built On A Solid IT Foundation

Each college or university approaches IT differently. Some take a centralised approach, while others are driven by each department or school’s needs. No matter which way you’re organised, unifying IT workflows, tasks, and tools plays a major role in how well you solve tomorrow’s challenges and adapt to evolving technology. 

Outside influences also play a part in what kind of foundation you need. At what level must you secure your information? What degree of reporting or compliance do you provide your trustees, regents, or governing boards? Your IT solutions, if integrated together, will help you perform more like a post-graduate and less like a first-year freshman.


Graduate to a Higher Degree of IT

Your college or university enables students for their careers and their future. Your IT should do the same for everyone who works there—make their careers easier and your future more certain.

So Many Threat Vectors
Every semester sees new mobile devices and apps, as well as threats that use these as a vector.
Third-Party Patching
Who knows what kinds of security threats and productivity hits lurk in those unpatched apps?
What’s on Your Network?
Confidence comes from knowing—you know what you manage, but what are you missing?
Migrate and Maintain Windows 10 and Other Operating Systems
Mass OS migrations always present unforeseen challenges to IT and users alike.
Support All End-User Platforms
Windows, Apple, Chromebooks, Linux, iOS, Android—Too many devices to count, too many to manage? Or maybe you’re using too many tools to manage them all?
Can’t See Beyond the Risks?
Higher education is held to a higher standard when it comes to software licencing and data security. How much visibility do you have?
Not Enough Resources? Make It Self-Serve
What other projects could you do if your faculty, staff, and students could get what they want, when they want it, without you being there?
