IT Solutions for K-12 School Districts

Reliable and secure access to the latest and greatest digital classroom tools

K-12 IT departments need to be equipped with the right tools to empower a 7th-grade 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 high-school math teacher needs to lock all devices into “assessment mode” to give an in-class calculus test.

IT challenges range from supporting 1:1 initiatives, protecting against ransomware, configuring and patching staff and student devices, users, apps and settings of devices used in specific classes in a school district 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 understaffed K-12 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. A school 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 K-12 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.

Enable Mobile Learning
Manage and secure a growing number of tablets, phones and laptops. Support BYOD initiatives and enable learning on the go. Safeguard mobile devices from loss and theft. Streamline purchase and management of mobile apps, manage volume app licenses, even distribute and revoke licenses as necessary.
Optimize assets and manage licenses at a budget
Tablets and other devices may change hands throughout the school year. Easily discover what hardware needs to be purchased, updated, and maintained in order to keep costs down and your assets in good health. Track software licenses to make the most of the software programs you already purchased.
Extend Apple management
Seamlessly integrate with Apple school manager. Deliver all of the learning content, licenses, and class roster information from Appleā€™s portal to the students, teachers, and classrooms where it is needed quickly and automatically.
Automate Windows migrations
End of support dates for prior Windows versions are fast approaching. Migrate thousands of machines quickly. Map and update dozens of apps and drivers to the appropriate users and devices, plus restore user data and settings.
Patch Third-Party Applications
You might have your Microsoft programs under control but what about patching your most vulnerable third-party apps, including Acrobat Flash, Java, and multiple Internet browsers
Avoid fire-fighting and armies of technicians
Automate important updates while also making it easy for users to manage their own environment with self-service, knowledgebase and voice automation. Free up technical staff at the school sites. Configure systems automatically at the start of each school year.
Keep Ransomware and cyber-attacks at bay
One in ten educational organizations has been hit with malware (BitSight, 2016). Eliminate the chances of unintentional and intentional breaches from within and outside the firewall.
Manage complexity and compliance
1:1 ipad program, Windows, Mac or Android devices need to be managed in a unified manner. Faculty, students, and staff require the privileges needed to be productive without the security exposure of full admin rights.

Improve K-12 IT services, optimize software and hardware assets, protect the network, and safeguard student data

When IT is not scrambling to manage and secure a fragmented fleet of devices with variable operating systems and ownership statuses, data is more secure and IT resources are not wasted. With the proper support in place, K-12 districts can leverage the benefits of mobility and digital learning tools to better run, grow and transform their schools.

Manage user privileges at a deep, granular level. Prevent unauthorized code execution. And enforce software licensing through our singular “trusted ownership” model and an improved approach to traditional whitelisting and blacklisting.

Multi-layered Defenses

Automate discovery, patch management, and application and device control. You can even isolate infected devices and take action swiftly to keep malware from spreading.

IT asset optimization

Complete visibility to maximize the performance and value of your hardware and software. Gain the ability to reclaim unused software, meet compliance requirements, and save time with a centralized view of your assets.

Prepare for Windows 10
