Education

Universities and colleges need to keep up with the digital life of their students and researchers by enabling advanced educational innovation, research discovery and future growth using powerful, cost-effective computing and storage capabilities. 

The academic world is also vulnerable to data loss and operational interruptions due to accidental deletion of files, unplanned events, ransomware attacks and major disasters. Educational IT infrastructure therefore needs to support, protect and recover data and applications.

Education

Education faces many challenges:


Ransomware

Reports show education is now the most targeted industry for ransomware, with many recent attacks on universities and colleges. Decentralized IT, common in higher education, creates security holes and increases the odds of a successful attack


Scale of data

Education data such as student records and information, financial data and proprietary research is overwhelming to store, protect and manage

Shift to hybrid

Education sector workloads, like research data and digital student services are utilizing a broad range of hardware and storage solutions creating hybrid environments. This makes backup and recovery more complex and needs to make sure they manage and cost this shift effectively

Regulatory compliance

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), HIPAA, GLBA, GDPR and DPA require IT to implement technical safeguards including regular disaster recovery testing


At Tectrade we understand the risks associated with failed backups and recoveries, compliance, data retention, visibility and storage infrastructure cost/capacity management and will undertake the toughest challenges to allowing secure, cost-effective access to computing and software resources to researchers and students wherever they are.
