MaaS360 by Fiberlink

Education

Manage Devices, Apps, Content and Web Access for the Classroom and Administration

A recent Forrester study found that the number of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices has already eclipsed traditional PCs at educational institutions. Textbooks are quickly being replaced with e-books, and one laptop per child is becoming one tablet per child. At the same time, stretched-thin IT resources and budgets are expected to “cover” mobile device management in order to mitigate data risk and ensure appropriate usage.

MaaS360 Solves the Challenge of Mobility in Education

Virtual learning involves apps that are part of the lesson plan and faculty-owned devices. While these apps can improve the education experience, they also increase risk of security breaches for confidential information, including financial data, student grades and medical information.

MaaS360 helps organizations enable focused learning, secure sensitive information, prevent data leaks, and comply with CIPA (Child Internet Protection Act), PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and other regulations.

Using MaaS360 Mobile Device Management (MDM), Mobile Application Management (MAM), Document and Expense Management, and Secure Browser, you can substantially reduce the IT workload and cost of managing mobile devices, apps, documents and Web access.
