Education IT solutions

Higher learning institutions are vulnerable to a variety of planned or unplanned local, national, or global business disruptions. By ensuring seamless operations no matter what happens, the right digital technology solution helps protect your institution from consequences such as gaps in students’ education, damaged institutional reputation, and financial implications.

The world is changing faster than ever to support remote employees, and now, remote students. Keeping students engaged and focused on learning outside the classroom is an unexpected shift, especially for first timers. Citrix makes that shift easy, creating flexible learning spaces using application virtualization to deliver all apps—even heavy, 3D and graphically intensive apps—to lower cost thin clients or personal devices.

Citrix helps promote learning by collaborating, sharing ideas, making new connections, discoveries, and breakthroughs. With Citrix solutions for education, students, faculty and staff no longer have to worry about remembering which device or folder they saved an important document. Using a secure data file sharing tool, files and projects are saved and synced across devices and locations.

Test taking is now easier than ever. Exams can be delivered on the same device used to study on instead of having to travel to unfamiliar computer labs. Deliver assessments through a virtual desktop to make better use of hardware resources. Instead of IT locking down or taking PC’s out of circulation to install testing software, students can change from one session to the next seamlessly. IT administrators can also add an additional layer of security, by delivering computer-based assessments in a lock-down, containerized secure browser.

Research data is a huge source of income for major universities and ensuring research data security is critical. Instead of worrying about providing special access methods during a disruption, IT can allow people to access their secure digital workspaces over any available connection without the need for additional VPN software. If data gets lost or stolen, it can cost millions of dollars and expose the university to litigation. By securing your network and cloud infrastructure—including files that researchers are constantly sharing—you can prevent lost or stolen data.

Schools and universities hold a wealth of staff and student data—academic aptitude, financial status, physical and mental health records—that need to remain secure to protect privacy. Centralized application management and enterprise grade file sync and sharing make it easier to keep staff and student data secure and prove regulatory compliance.
