Challenges schools face

Budget & infrastructure

Many schools struggle with inadequate technology infrastructure due to slashed budgets, limited IT staff, and outdated equipment.

Diverse endpoints

IT staff supports a mix of school-provided and student-owned devices from different manufacturers running different operating systems—each with their own software vulnerabilities and risks.
