Educational institutions have for years drawn the attention of cybercriminals. Poor digital hygiene and the continued use of legacy software with known exploits have contributed to the success of cyber attacks against schools, colleges, and universities. But an escalation in ransomware attacks in the last year has made it even more essential that the educational sector adopt a more comprehensive strategy for keeping the sensitive data they handle and store better protected.

The rapid adoption of new distance learning strategies have sadly emboldened malicious actors. At the height of the pandemic last year, Microsoft’s Global Threat Activity Tracker found a staggering 61 percent of more than 7 million malware encounters over a one-month period involved the educational sector. That percentage has since risen to more than 62 percent.

Maintaining the continuity of operations in our schools and the digital safety of our students, educators, administrators, and parents requires constant vigilance and a well-coordinated approach to data security. SecureData combines offline encrypted backup systems, secure external storage devices, remote management options, built-in antivirus protection, and solid endpoint security. This “total security” approach puts you in charge of how, when, and where your educational data is accessed.

All SecureDrive® and SecureUSB® devices feature military-grade hardware encryption. Our BT line can be remotely managed via a mobile app and secure Bluetooth connection with multi-factor authentication and remote wipe functions in case of loss or theft. Our KP line features secure PIN access via an on-board alphanumeric keypad.

Your Data Security Begins with SecureDrives

Making SecureData’s hardware and software solutions a part of your overall data security strategy will ensure that student records and personally identifiable information about students, parents, teachers, and administrators remains protected. It will also maintain the continuity of school operations by ensuring computer networks are shielded from attacks within and outside of your organization.

Highest Security Standards with Award-Winning Design

The entire SecureDrive product line is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Validated for government-certified levels of protection. The devices have military-grade AES 256-bit XTS encryption with all components of the devices coated in epoxy to prevent reverse-engineering.

Immediate Compliance and Secure Authentication

The SecureDrive product line helps organizations meet necessary requirements for the safe storage of heavily regulated personal data. SecureDrives have secure authentication methods via PIN or wireless authentication with a mobile app. They can also be unlocked using fingerprints or facial recognition.

Plug and Play Design

SecureDrives are software-free and work right out of the box without the need for any type of setup. Our products are OS/Host independent and work across all operating systems and devices with a USB port.

Antivirus Protection

DriveSecurity® Antivirus powered by ESET comes preloaded with every SecureDrive product. This keeps any malicious files from being transferred to or from the device, keeping the data completely protected from ransomware or other cyberattacks aimed at schools, colleges, and universities.

Brute Force Anti-Hacking

Your data is protected from unauthorized parties with brute force anti-hacking technology. After 10 consecutive failed PIN or password entries, all data will be wiped from the device, keeping your sensitive data safe from hackers and other malicious parties.
