Cybersecurity protection is an absolute necessity to protect our schools, staff and students today. As a result, AISNSW has negotiated with Sophos, on behalf of Independent schools, a best value cyber security protection program for all member schools.

One just has to look online and see evidence every day of the growing number of ransomware attacks which have put a spotlight on the vulnerability of our schools and other educational institutions – especially now that we need to support remote and hybrid learning, on top of existing budgets and resource constraints of our IT operations. We need to protect against this and other cyber-attacks with next generation cyber security software.

AISNSW has negotiated a unique opportunity for member schools that is;

  • Incredibly affordable and unique to NSW Independent Schools
  • Easy to buy and licence (by number of users and servers)
  • Simple to deploy and manage centrally for your school (from anywhere - cloud based)
  • Next-generation protection
  • Free protection at home for staff and student families

Principals may wish to forward this information to their IT Manager for further investigation.

Note: If your school is already using Sophos products this offer will bring your current costs down to allow you to more affordably upgrade to more advanced threat protection.
