Prevention is the Key

One of our biggest concerns is "A trojan implanted on a computer inside our network spreading throughout the network. With so many staff and faculty using computers on our network, we are constantly being bombarded with phishing or trojan emails and users visiting infected websites. The whitelist protection used by SuperShield has been a tremendous help in preventing infections and implantations."

PC Matic Pro Decreases IT’s Workload

Traditional antivirus has gaping flaws that cause IT to be in a constant state of remediation. Removing infections and wiping out devices to return to a normal state. PC Matic Pro’s approach focuses on prevention to not only keep devices more secure, but lower the workload on IT: "... without the whitelist feature of PC Matic Pro the tech department would be overwhelmed. Our tech support for removing a Virus or Trojan from our computers has been greatly reduced."

PC Matic Security Software Solutions

School cybersecurity incidents whether accidental or intentional, disrupts education and school operations. Accidental or deliberate breaches can expose students, teachers and other educational staff workers' sensitive, personally identifiable information (PII). Many times, schools and school districts are unaware that their IT systems have been hacked or compromised. Hackers and cybercriminals are increasingly targeting schools to steal data or ransom data for profit.

The best solution to prevent hacking of school IT systems for ransom is for school district IT network administrators to use Application Allowlisting. Whitelists work with antivirus blacklists to completely secure a school's endpoints and servers. Whitelisting completely blocks hackers, malware, spyware, trojans, zero-day exploits, polymorphous viruses, fileless infections and ransomware. Explore the best ransomware protection for schools.
