Eighty-seven percent of educational establishments have experienced at least one cyber-attack1.
In 2021, the average cost per breach within the educational sector was $3.79 million2.
Social engineering, system intrusion, and miscellaneous errors make up 86% of attacks on educational institutes3.
The education industry houses some of the most sensitive data, making it a regularly targeted sector by threat actors. Critical Start offers Managed Detection and Response services that detect the right threats, respond with the right actions, and provide the right agility and adaptability to stay ahead of emerging threats.
We equip educational institutions to protect student and employee data, optimize the time and efforts of their IT teams, improve security effectiveness, and reduce risk by reducing false positives by 90%, escalating less than 0.01% of alerts and resolving more than 99.9% of alerts.
ZTAP is the backbone of our managed detection and response (MDR) services. Our Trusted Behavior Registry™ (TBR) within ZTAP enables us to auto-resolve false positives – the largest volume of alerts—at scale, and our SOC utilizes ZTAP to handle 100% of your alerts.
Cybersecurity for the education industry needs on-the-go access. With our MobileSOC iOS/Android app, MDR customers can reduce attacker dwell-time from the palm of their hand. It goes far beyond ticketing and notifications by letting you triage and respond to alerts, so you never miss an event.
From big universities to small school districts, educational institutions are facing increases in ransomware, phishing, DDoS and data breach attacks. At the same time budgets and resources are constrained. Learn how Managed Detection & Response (MDR) services protect institutions against cybersecurity threats 24/7/365.
