Partnership combines authentic managed detection and response with
innovative security solutions built for education

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/ITSecurity?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#ITSecuritylt;/agt;–Student data can now be more secure because of a partnership between CI
Security™ and Ednetics. The partnership makes it easier for schools and
universities to get 24×7 information security monitoring, threat
detection, and response for education networks. Ednetics
is a leader in technology and physical security solutions for education
and government customers. CI Security is a leader in Managed
Detection and Response (MDR)
 cybersecurity services.

The partnership evolved from a shared mission to support critical
services in our local communities. Ednetics and CI Security bring
purpose-built solutions to ensure every aspect of network infrastructure
is managed and secure within schools. The partnership accelerates the
opportunity to support nearly 730,000 students in more than 1,500
schools with comprehensive information security services. With CI
Security’s MDR and Ednetics’ procurement vehicles, education customers
can easily purchase their solutions through a streamlined procurement
process for the educational sector. The cost and bureaucracy associated
with purchasing security solutions have been greatly reduced.

“School networks are prime targets for unauthorized disclosure of
records, theft, and service disruption for the purpose of extortion,”
said Mike
Hamilton
, CISO and founder of CI Security. “Ednetics and CI Security
want to ensure schools take a comprehensive approach to addressing
network security risks and demonstrating auditable compliance with
COPPA, FERPA, and emerging privacy legislation.”

“The true value of this partnership is how our companies work together
to provide managed detection and response,” said Brandon
McCoy
, Director of Ednetics Network™. “With our commitment to
state-of-the-art technologies, CI Security is a proven partner in
helping our customers find cyber threats and manage the risks associated
with information security compromises. Excellent security requires a
unified team of experts ready to respond anytime—we can now extend that
team of experts to our customers with CI Security.”

CI Security combines purpose-built technology with 24×7 security analyst
coverage to monitor for signs of cyber threat actors and quickly respond
when they are found. CI Security’s MDR solution works with Ednetics
Network™, and school administrators can be confident knowing digital and
physical systems are being monitored around-the-clock for cyber threats.

“Cyber criminals are unscrupulous predators—any high-value target is a
good target,” said Garrett
Silver
, CEO of CI Security. “The CI Security-Ednetics partnership
supports safe spaces in the digital realm. With network security that
delivers reliable access and secure digital environments, school and
government administrators can spend more time on delivering quality
outcomes to support the communities in which we live.”

With these turn-key network security solutions in place, schools can
ramp up quickly while setting the stage for long-term sustainability and
cost-savings.
