SIEM Installation & Management. Comprehensive cybersecurity services for higher education.

New federal regulations are tightening cybersecurity requirements for colleges and universities. This means fulfilling contractual obligations to maintain federal grants, research contracts, and other federal transactions is becoming increasingly reliant on compliance with requirements outlined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology in special publication 800-171.

If you haven’t read it yet, you should, we admit it is a pretty dry read but at 77 pages you gain an understanding of the impending weight of these new requirements. What if there was an easier way to hit all 54 requirements outlined in the publication? Lets save some time and skip ahead…there is. By utilizing BitLyft’s managed cybersecurity services we shoulder this burden with you making compliance and reporting a much easier process.

Educational institutions face many challenges, large user bases, complex networks, access control, sensitive records and aging infrastructures. This has meant that they have become increasingly attractive targets. One of the weaknesses we have discovered in the educational realm is a lack of visibility into what is actually taking place on their networks. In simple terms, you cannot close a door you do not know is open. Since a lack of visibility is can create some very large issues, increasing visibility is one of our primary goals. BitLyft gives you a control center that provides real visibility into the traffic on your network. Once we have established visibility we go about finding the open doors and closing them.
