Challenges schools face


Wide open campuses

Sensitive personal information and intellectual property is difficult to secure because it's stored and shared across multiple departments. In addition, students access data and submit assignments through secured and unsecured networks.



Many schools struggle with inadequate technology infrastructure due to slashed budgets, limited IT staff, and outdated equipment.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

Threats schools face

High marks for Malwarebytes

"Since Malwarebytes, we’ve had no more ransomware or advanced malware infections. Malwarebytes stopped high volumes of adware, Trojans, access to malicious websites, PUPs, and exploits—more than one billion threats to date."

Brian Bartlett

Southern Wesleyan University


"Since we replaced Sophos, we just don't see the problems we used to. Malwarebytes takes care of it."

Pat Kustok

Computer Technician
Reavis High School


"We have far less after-the-fact remediation, we haven't had any ransomware incidents, and I haven't touched Malwarebytes since deployment."

Gareth Edwards

Technical Lead, Information Services
University of Central Lancashire


"We know that protection is consistently deployed across our systems without affecting teacher and staff productivity. It just works."

Jeff Davis

Director of Technology and Information
Standard School District


"The most significant benefit of Malwarebytes is protection from ransomware, exploits, and other malware. We haven’t had any outbreaks since 2014. It was money well spent."

Farukh Zeeshan

Chief Information Officer
Royal Veterinary College, University of London


"Malwarebytes made it possible to knock down the Emotet infection in twenty days without taking down our network. It’s great to detect infections but to have a solution that also isolates and disinfects the infection is huge. I believe Malwarebytes has a powerful solution, and no one currently has anything close to it."
