The path to Zero Trust and Passwordless Authentication

Education Sector

The Ever-Increasing Importance of Data Security in Education

Universities, private schools, and educational institutions are becoming increasingly popular targets of cyberattacks. This should not come as a surprise. After all, such facilities store high-quality data, which can be a promising prospect for a successful cybercriminal. Victims, on the other hand, may face significant losses, both financially and reputation-wise. At the same time, organizations cannot focus solely on security, as they need to balance it with user comfort.

User Access Security Broker from Secfense is a great solution for establishing high-security standards and a seamless user experience. Deploying the FIDO2 web authentication standard (or any other better suited strong two-factor authentication standard) protects access to all applications and data, all the while making it easy for students, teachers, alumni, and administration staff to log in.

Benefits for Educational Institutions

There are many benefits a school, university, or other educational institution can enjoy when using User Access Security Broker from Secfense. Here is a selection of them:

  • Access protected by strong authentication mechanisms for teachers, administrators, students, and alumni.
  • Unified User Access Policies for all the applications and users, both from within the trusted network and from the outside.
  • With the self-registration feature, end-users can choose their own 2FA method at their first login, which significantly helps with the onboarding process. Once the learning mechanisms have been applied, the tool will start learning the traffic patterns.

“Two-factor authentication is known to be one of the best ways to protect against phishing; however, its implementation has always been difficult. Secfense helped us solve that problem. With their security broker, we were able to introduce various 2FA methods on our web applications at once.”
