Higher education institutions face complicated security challenges, primarily driven by the need to protect, support, and manage an expansive volume of digital assets, which are constantly vulnerable to attack. IT teams at colleges and universities are tasked with protecting intellectual property, sensitive personal information like academic, health, and financial data, and a wide range of academic and research pursuits. These teams also have to manage and support access to Cloud-based applications, while embracing new thinking regarding higher education cybersecurity, including challenges presented by remote and hybrid education models. For these reasons, over 200 colleges and universities trust BIO-key to keep their faculty, staff, and students secure with affordable and reliable identity management solutions.

“While higher education cybersecurity investment has increased in recent years, many colleges and universities may not have large budgets, so they are often reactive in their approach to finding the right cybersecurity solution. Unfortunately, if organizations are breached, they will likely incur a significant financial loss,” said Mark Cochran, President of BIO-key – PortalGuard. “IT security teams are strained to find the most up-to-date solutions to support and protect their institution. BIO-key’s cybersecurity solutions provide robust security capabilities for higher education and save on associated costs by allowing institutions to decrease dependency on multiple vendors.”
