Achieve better cybersecurity results

From the theft of private information of employees and students, to the loss of coveted research, to the potential financial windfall from exfiltration of student fees or research funding, educational institutions have much to lose if hit by a cyber attack. That’s why it’s critically important to not only know the threats and risks that you need to look out for, but also where your institution stands in terms of preparedness.

Some of the key challenges facing the the education sector include:

  • Students, teachers and administrative staff are often not trained on cybersecurity, and have no deep understanding of acceptable use policies
  • Increasing visibility and detection capabilities to discover malicious activity on endpoints, networks and cloud is difficult given security staff are often distanced from the schools in a board setting
  • The shift to online or remote education means that students are often using less than secure networks, endpoints, or cloud-based applications, like video calling and document sharing services
  • Increasingly challenging to efficiently scale cybersecurity efforts without taxing existing budgets and resources

Better detection and response without redirecting critical resources

Gain 24/7 support and protection

While we all endorse sleep as an important part of the learning process, reality is, students and researchers are often up late, even all night, accessing school systems and traversing your networks.  As are your adversaries.  The last thing you need is to arrive in the morning and find your environment locked up.  With ActZero, get continuous round-the-clock monitoring of systems and networks for signs of anomalies.  We’re on the lookout for threats, even when your critical staff are enjoying their well-earned downtime.

Get better detection and response to cut out needless alerts

Research, online learning, and materials sharing has opened up the horizons of education like never before.  Unfortunately, it has also opened up the threat plain.  Emergent threats are also capable of swiftly jumping around your environment, from endpoint to network to cloud all in a matter of minutes. Our machine-learning and human threat hunting combine threat signals from across multiple sources, helping rapidly detect threats, eliminating false positives so that action can be taken quicker, with less wasted effort, and fewer needless alerts.

Simplify operations and save resources

Let’s face facts - the purchase or continuation of numerous security tools and the countless hours of management associated with them is costly.  ActZero’s MDR solution is up to 8X less expensive than building in-house, and up to 4X less expensive than outsourcing to a Managed Security Services Provider. We can immediately help you save money and internal IT resource time, allowing you to re-invest in what’s most important 󠀭- becoming a leading institution.

Cover More Ground on your Cybersecurity Path

Evaluate and understand your current cybersecurity preparedness.  Build and execute the plan to improve it.


With constant insight into your environment, and regular reporting, know where your risks are.  We help by clearly laying them out for you in our easy-to-use portal, and your regular reports.


Create your plan to close the gaps, including setting priorities, effort, and timing - which inevitably help with passing internal and external security assessments, and avoiding costly breaches.


Your institution may be tasked with meeting a number of data privacy regulation and compliance standards. Get clear visibility into the security controls and processes you currently have in place, then rapidly map them against requirements like PCI-DSS, and more.
