Government agencies and schools have suffered a record-breaking number of ransomware and cyberattacks over the past year. Funding to lower this cyber risk will become available as part of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan. The plan provides $350 billion dollars in emergency funding for state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments for spending money on everything from sanitation and ventilation to IT hardware, software and connectivity. Millions of dollars in funding from this relief plan are to be used to improve cybersecurity posture.
The massive shift to remote work and distance learning over the past year has changed the way most organizations will continue to work going forward. BeyondTrust creates a frictionless experience for users, enabling the right level of access at just the right time, while vastly reducing your threat surface.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 health crisis, malware attacks have increased 30,000% with the surge in remote work remote endpoints. Part of your telework strategy needs to include endpoint security. Fortunately, most phishing and malware attacks can be neutralized by removing local admin rights. With BeyondTrust, you can empower remote end-users to do their jobs without giving them admin rights or exposing your network.
The operational and security challenges involved in shifting to remote work are massive. Fortunately, there are solutions that can help. With BeyondTrust, you can give employees, vendors and admins secure access to desktops and systems, without a VPN. You can also empower your service desk to provide secure, reliable remote support to end-users and customers on or off your network.
Equipping students with devices to attend virtual school and enabled teachers to teach from home is one step toward enabling distance learning. But IT will still need to support everyone and ensure security? BeyondTrust has the tools you need for the online school. With BeyondTrust, you can:
In March 2020, all 30,000 employees for the state of Illinois were ordered to work from home in response to the spread of COVID-19. The state needed a tool to enable remote work as effectively, securely, and quickly as possible.
Learn how the state was able to deploy BeyondTrust Remote Support within days to seamlessly enable remote support, and securely manage and monitor remote sessions across their workforce.
Morris School District, located in Morristown, New Jersey, has 10 public school buildings serving 5,200 students in grades pre-K through 12. The school district employs more than 900 teachers and staff. The district is an active member of the League of Innovative Schools, a consortium of 114 independent school districts committed to helping K-12 schools rise up to address education challenges by fostering the innovative use of technology in learning.
Many Universities have diverse user populations. This complex network of users, admins, and accounts requires a complete Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution that protects and manages the many different types of privileged accounts within the Higher Ed system.
That’s why the University of Utah chose BeyondTrust to implement a Just-in-Time Privileged Access Management (JIT PAM) model to enforce true “least privilege.” JIT PAM is a model that ensures users, processes, applications, systems, etc. have “just enough” privileged access when needed, and for the least amount of time necessary.
