Secure File Transfer for Education
Educational institutions disseminate a tremendous amount of information for which privacy must be maintained. Academic records, medical history, and other personal information is communicated from school to school, and from schools to parents and students. And, like their counterparts in the business world, schools and universities are required to comply with federal regulations, such as the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) that protect student privacy and require notification on information access.
Ease of use is an important factor – because educational facilities work with a vast number of users at differing skill levels, making simplicity vital. But, to date, security and ease-of-use have not been synonymous. In fact, most data security and loss prevention technologies go far beyond the required capabilities, making them difficult to use and costly to manage. Providing a simple and intuitive user interface accessible without requiring a thick client download, is a necessity for school administrators, parents, and students.
