IT Solutions for Schools
Reliable and secure access to the latest and greatest digital classroom tools
IT departments need to be equipped with the right tools to empower a Year 7 science teacher to create a digital lesson plan on photosynthesis and deliver content and quizzes just to his students’ class iPads. At the same time, a secondary school maths teacher needs to lock all devices into “assessment mode” to give an in-class calculus test.
IT challenges range from protecting against ransomware, configuring and patching staff and student devices, users, apps and settings of devices used in specific classes in a school to managing and securing multi-user mobile devices so schools can safeguard hardware by keeping it within the classroom. There is no denying that the demands of managing and securing technology can overwhelm a schools understaffed IT departments. But you can’t ask teachers to do IT work…or can you? Make it easy with self-service and automation.
Do more with what you have
The demand for technology in the classroom is always increasing, but budgets and resources aren’t. An education system extends beyond faculty and students to include administration, food services, transportation, and security personnel—and more. Piecemealing systems to manage different device types, ownership and operating systems quickly makes school IT staff feel overwhelmed with multiple systems in its management process. With possible overlap as well as oversight, this creates inefficiencies and increases the risk of errors in data security, such as the challenge of keeping the various computing devices provisioned, patched, and updated.

IT asset optimization
Complete visibility to maximise the performance and value of your hardware and software. Gain the ability to reclaim unused software, meet compliance requirements, and save time with a centralised view of your assets.
Automate discovery, patch management, and application and device control. You can even isolate infected devices and take action swiftly to keep malware from spreading.
Unprecedented Endpoint Control
Manage user privileges at a deep, granular level. Prevent unauthorised code execution. And enforce software licencing through our singular “trusted ownership” model and an improved approach to traditional whitelisting and blacklisting.
Allow settings and apps to follow students — rather than devices — from class to class. Multi-user configurations also allow budget-constrained schools to extend the benefits of Apple’s powerful classroom technology to more students through dynamic smart policies.
