About this talk

Keeping students and their data safe, while maintaining a modern and engaging learning environment, is a delicate balance. Today’s “classroom” is a complicated array of devices, networks, and SaaS or cloud vendors for learning management, student information, or data storage services. The modern classroom advances the educational mission, but strain the ability of K-12 IT leaders to maintain visibility to the environment and manage the risks posed to student safety, confidential data, and availability of services. Using a platform approach, IT Administrators can: · Accommodate the ability for student to access their data and apps from anywhere · Apply consistent security across everything - traditional classroom settings, cloud services, and 1:1 and BYOD programs · Manage the environment in an operationally efficient manner Join us for a live webinar featuring a panel discussion with K-12 administrators and learn how they have been able to achieve greater security through a platform approach to BYOD and cloud while still providing the tools necessary for students, faculty, and staff to teach and learn wherever they are.
