Online Data Storage, Backup and Recovery Solutions for the Education Sector
Each year the staff and students of school districts, technical institutions, and colleges amass a tremendous amount of data, often accessed by people from home computers or scattered across buildings, campuses, or even states.
Student transcripts and electronic test scores, staff records, planning documents, digital curriculum, and educational resources are all maintained electronically. All of the data is vital to both educators and students with some of it highly sensitive and subject to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). This Federal law protects the privacy of student education records for all schools that receive funds under applicable programs of the U.S. Department of Education. Keeping confidential data safe and secure has never been more important.
