Are you safe at home?

We know that staff are increasingly working remotely; whether from home, or from a different site, even at a conference.  We also know how important it is that they can access your school’s network safely and securely.  With very real threats from Ransomware, the number one malware attack affecting organisations today, how do you stay safe?

We’ve developed a tool to help keep you safe, and still access your network.

Introducing SSL Connect

SSL Connect is a web based tool, which allows your users with Managed Devices to remotely access your school network, as if they were on site. This means that they can remotely and securely access file stores, shared areas, network servers and even SIMs.

Users are licensed on a concurrent basis, meaning you don’t need to name your staff, or leave computers on over night. The advantage here is that you do not need to worry about licensing specific or all members of staff.

A cloud based service, with no onsite hardware to install and licences starting at just  £5 per annum per licence, keep your staff and data safe and secure.

For more information on how SSL connect can work for you, go to the SSL Connect page.
