How Ekran System helps enhance cybersecurity in educational institutions

Get a clear view of how your students, employees, and stakeholders interact with your sensitive assets. Monitor user activity in real-time or review recorded user sessions in a screen capture format backed with detailed metadata.

Grant, broaden, and terminate access to your sensitive resources. Approve access requests and allow temporary access to your critical data only when users need it to perform specific tasks.

Verify users’ identities with two-factor authentication (2FA) before providing them with access, and distinguish user actions in shared accounts with secondary authentication.

Ensure secure access to your organization’s endpoints for remote students, third-party service providers, and other external users. Monitor how they handle your sensitive data and put a stop to any suspicious activity.

Receive real-time alerts for risky user behavior and security policy violations. Swiftly respond to threats manually or automatically: display a warning message, block the user, and kill the process.
