Ready to ace cybersecurity and compliance?

We’re your cybersecurity partner with all the answers.

The education sector is a prime attack target because the bad guys know you’re low on resources, and cybersecurity isn’t your focus. It’s critical to secure your data and mitigate the risk of a breach. Being held captive by ransomware is not a position you want your staff and students to be in. We understand you have to use many free third-party platforms to maximize your budget; however, they don’t come with cybersecurity protection. When you partner with Assura, those issues are no longer a concern you have to address on your own. We’re experts with a proven track record of protecting educational organizations.
