JSPC wins largest growth award from ESET for the second year in a row
The ESET conference is always a highlight of the JSPC calendar. It gives us a chance to hear from ESET all about their latest products designed to provide anti-virus and internet security. We know this is a very important issue for schools, and one which we take seriously. That’s why we work closely with ESET as a silver partner to ensure we can offer the very best products to protect schools from malware and viruses.
This year, as well as learning all about the latest developments from ESET, we were delighted to have been awarded the Largest Growth Award by ESET for the second year in a row. The award shows that our collaborative approach with schools, including providing education about the importance of cyber security, helps to grow our business and ensures that schools across the South East are well protected against malware threats.
Last year saw a lot of high-profile stories in the news about organisations that had been hacked, and the cost to a school of fixing such an issue can be immense and can also damage a school’s reputation. Our proactive approach with schools to implement ESET has meant that this threat is not adding to the pressure of school administration and doesn’t impact on any of the rest of the infrastructure.
The introduction of GDPR legislation also played a role in the growth; schools had particular security requirements relating to security to comply with the new requirements and ESET had a solution which allowed schools to not only fulfil but even exceed the minimum requirements to ensure that the school was well protected.
We recommend ESET is because it provides endpoint antivirus protection, file and mobile security and offers remote management for schools. Not only does it protect against hackers and other cyber threats, but also proactively seeks out potential issues within the system and identifies them before they become a threat. This ensures schools can keep focussing on their top priority of education.
We’re delighted to have received the largest growth award from ESET once again, and we’ll continue to work closely with schools to provide the very best in internet security. We might try for a hat trick on the award front, but we’ll keep our focus on what each school needs to ensure they remain protected as internet security requirements evolve.
