Minnesota School District Deploys Centralized Data Protection

##AUTHORSPLIT##<--->

Alexandria School District 206 in Minnesota is taking steps to guard student data. The district has signed on with security technology developer Robobak to provide a centralized tool for protecting data.

Alexandria School District 206 is spread over about 500 square miles, with data stored in a number of locations. "While we use advanced fiber optics, we were seeking a solution that would allow us to easily and centrally protect all of our data from these disparate locations," said Mathew Herges, the network/hardware specialist for Alexandria School District 206, in a prepared statement.

The district is using Robobak's v9 Data Protection Suite, which is a collection of network-based data protection software tools. It includes encrypted storage and transfer, agentless backups, delta block-level incremental backups, data compression, scheduling, notification and monitoring, a visual policy editor and other policy features, versioning, Web portal features, Web-based administration, archiving, and other data security tools.

Alexandria School District 206 serves about 4,000 students in eight schools.
