Exploring IT Services Tailored for K-12 Schools
With any IT services tailored for K-12 schools, the emphasis should be on building a school’s ability to use technology without compromising on security both digital and physical. Schools accomplish this by maintaining network infrastructure, security standards, and department support.
However, due to budget and personnel constraints, it may not be possible for schools to meet these needs. This is where IT services for schools can help fill the gap to make sure that students, teachers, and administrators have the tools they need.Book a Demo
Protect and Improve Your School With ANC Group’s Broad IT Services
As a company, one of the customizable services the ANC Group offers is Hardware as a Service (HaaS). What does this mean? Hardware as a Service (HaaS) is a managed service where you lease computing power from a central provider.
HaaS involves a contract with a service provider for the administration and maintenance of hardware systems. This service may be remote or onsite, depending on your hardware setup and space limits.
With our provider system, we install, monitor, and maintain the hardware. The benefits of this are: you have flexibility in what hardware you need; and you don’t have to worry about hardware upkeep. This includes disaster recovery appliances to help you restore business operations and recover pertinent data while being able to conduct school business easily.
In our aim to provide excellent IT services for education, we also offer hardware security with firewalls to protect privacy-sensitive networks and provide end-user components to improve hardware function. As part of our commitment to network infrastructure solutions, we also provide office relocation, hardware/network installation, and cable restructuring services.
We know that data backups, security, and accessibility are essential for an organization’s IT systems. Our cloud solutions help move data from one location and ensure availability in several locations without spending money for additional hardware and IT sites.
Furthermore, placing data in the cloud helps to distribute information, so that if one site loses data through cyberattacks or other disaster–the information and data are secured virtually. The cloud services our company offers are private, public, and hybrid.
The differences between public and private clouds are that public clouds provide resources from a cloud server such as Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, or Amazon Web Services (AWS) and a private cloud service is from the infrastructure you own.
The advantages of a cloud service include greater storage capacity, regular technology updates, secure data, and scalability for enlarging or reducing your data operations.
With any network, there is the risk that hackers will attempt to steal or destroy your data. Our company offers 24/7 monitoring and provides IT services for education with scalable, custom-tailored security, and monitoring options.
Our monitoring services have automated system monitoring and ticket-generation; so you are aware of issues instantly. With automatic fix solutions, we have answers for immediate problems with remote support and onsite options depending on your contract terms.
In addition to 24/7 monitoring and support, we offer data backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity, cyber security, and intrusion protection.
ANC Group offers server virtualization services that can help you to achieve these goals. We also offer installation, configuration, and support services so that you can get the most out of your server virtualization solution.
ANC Group is passionate about protecting student data, so much so that we are offering free assessments for those organizations worried about not meeting the new process for PSU third-party vendor integration compliance.
We ensure that your school is compliant to manage student data by following the necessary compliance and security standards. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NC DPI) released new data security standards for any system that receives student information from a statewide system. The requirements go into effect August 1, 2023, and must be met before any new service agreement or renewal can be signed. These requirements include:
- Sign the DPI Data Confidentiality and Security Agreement, with no modifications.
- Articulate which statewide systems they will connect to, data fields requested and rational for collection, and how that data will be restricted to users who have a legitimate business need, and a description of any data written back to a statewide system.
- Submit security documentation including a vendor readiness assessment report, a third-party conducted assessment report (FedRAMP authorization, ISO 27001 certification, or others) no less than 12 months old, and alignment against the NC DIT Statewide Information Security Manual.
- Provide additional documentation if not in compliance with the Statewide Information Security Manual.
Don’t put this off any longer. Let ANC Group help your school and students data stay secure and protected no matter challenges you may face.
