Educational institutions process millions of records that contain personally identifiable information, or PII, on their students, faculty members, and staff.
Although all of these records must be handled with the greatest care, there are extensive laws that exist solely to protect student information. The Family Education and Privacy Act, or FERPA, requires institutions to securely manage all of their student data. However, when the time comes to destroy student data, FERPA has no guidelines that pertain specifically to data removal, leaving many within the education industry at a loss. If they do attempt to wipe their systems, and something goes awry—such as a leak or a breach—the institution will be found liable, and the consequences can be severe.
Clarabyte’s first solution, ClaraWipe, eliminates all anxieties surrounding this issue by securely destroying data on any device or drive. ClaraWipe exceeds all current industry standards, guaranteeing that all records will be wiped with no complications.
Clarabyte also offers a special solution for educational institutions with an emphasis on technology. After having their machines securely wiped, Clarabyte’s second solution, ClaraCheck, will enable these institutions to find the maximum resale value of their machines. ClaraCheck has state of the art automated diagnostics, driver injection, and OS deployment to a large number of devices simultaneously.
By employing one or both of Clarabyte’s solutions, educational institutions can manage their technologies with ease, clarity, and security. To learn more or to schedule a demo, contact us today!
