A Secure Solution for Colleges and Universities
Educational institutions face many challenges: large user bases, complex networks, access control, sensitive records and aging infrastructures. As a result, they have become increasingly attractive targets of a cyber attack. 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 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.
