Malwarebytes Launches Defense Against Cyber Threats in Education

By Stefania Viscusi

Malwarebytes, a provider of real-time cyber protection solutions, introduced the ThreatDown K-12 Bundle in response to the evolving cybersecurity landscape faced by K-12 educational institutions. This all-encompassing cybersecurity solution is designed to address the diverse range of devices found in modern schools, providing streamlined protection against cyber threats.

Educational institutions today manage a multitude of devices, including laptops, desktops, servers, Chromebooks, iPadOS, iOS, and Android devices. While these devices enhance the learning experience and operational efficiency, they also bring forth new security challenges.

With the ThreatDown K-12 Bundle educational institutions can optimize device uptime, improve productivity, and safeguard students, staff, devices, and data from the latest cyber threats.

“Schools are increasingly facing cyber threats with limited IT resources, leading to a rise in ransomware attacks that affect staff, teaching, and student well-being," said Marcin Kleczynski, Founder and CEO of Malwarebytes.

"Historically, cost barriers prevented schools from adopting cybersecurity managed services. Our K-12 Bundle packages together everything districts need to reduce risk and comply with regulations within a manageable budget. We're committed to making powerful protection and managed services accessible to vulnerable schools and students."

The bundle includes key features to fortify cybersecurity. Endpoint security forms the backbone, leveraging ThreatDown's robust AI/ML-driven prevention, detection, and response technologies. This security layer is further fortified with built-in innovations aimed at reducing the attack surface and simplifying the identification and patching of software vulnerabilities, all while preventing unauthorized program execution.

It also offers 24/7/365 Managed Services, seamlessly integrating ThreatDown's advanced technologies with Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services. This ensures that cybersecurity experts actively manage security protocols, addressing and resolving alerts around the clock.

With Unified Endpoint Management, it also not only strengthens cybersecurity postures in compliance with regulations but also facilitates quick and easy deployment, saving valuable time and resources for educational institutions.

Finally, with centralized, real-time visibility, IT teams have immediate insights across all devices.
