As online learning becomes more popular, educational institutions have come under increased cyberattack. Because of this, learning security has become a greater concern for them.
Last year, cybersecurity company Check Point Research identified a 75% increase in the number of cyberattacks on education-related entities. The firm found that there were 1,605 similar attacks per week and that the sector had been targeted most often.
Despite mounting threats, school districts struggle to make sure they’re defending themselves properly. With a lot of other priorities like funding and remote learning, they are having to juggle multiple responsibilities each year.
With saving time and preventing cyber threats, Google Workspace for Education Plus is a must-have. It promises to save you time and ensure the security of your schools.
Forrester Consulting recently conducted a study entitled “Total Economic Impact” and found that Education Plus is an effective way to improve security and reduce the time needed to address phishing incidents. In fact, it can reduce the number of phishing incidents by up to 95%! As a result, IT staff have more time for additional security measures rather than managing current attacks.
In addition to being a customizable platform, Google Schools helps administrators save up to 300 hours annually on administrative tasks. That means they have more time to focus on other duties within the school, such as teaching. Reports can be generated up to 80% faster with Education Plus, which is helpful for busy administrators.
Google Education Plus offers email filtering and security features that can help organizations quickly prevent, detect, and remediate incidents. This investigation tool can help save IT staff up to 98% of their time- typically spend otherwise addressing phishing attacks.
Google has created an Education Plus Impact Calculator to see how much of a business or organization could benefit from using their service. After answering 10 simple questions, you’ll be able to see the benefits and savings of their services.
Google offers a product demo for Education Plus. This is a way for interested parties to explore the interface and see how their institution could benefit from using the premium features. For example, the demo includes an investigation tool, security dashboard, admin controls, Google Meet, and originality reports.
Google Workspace for Education offers different editions of varying features and prices. The top-tier edition is called Education Plus and includes all the features mentioned previously. However, it’s important to note that while it can be an effective way to improve security, it’s not a cure-all.
