Chichester High School were in a predicament and came to us for help. During the Covid Pandemic in April 2020 students using home equipment for learning were becoming a threat to security and Jim Turner reached out to us for help.
We contacted Panda who were more than happy to help with security issues, offering a free solutions to students.
The post reads:
As if you didn’t have enough to worry about with Global Pandemics, lockdown, home schooling or answers to the great tiger based mysteries posed by online streaming services!
The threat from online nasties and malicious software still persist! I have seen a huge uptake in the use of our Office365 portal and other web based learning platforms. Which means so many more pupils are online on either their own equipment or maybe even yours and being safe online is as important now as it ever was.
There are numerous free solutions to protect your machine, some good some bad and some completely insufficient. If you are looking for something better than the basic but don’t want to pay out for another bit of software, then I have the perfect solution for you.
