With the sudden increase of the virtual campus, the number of vulnerable endpoints has expanded exponentially. This new normal calls for security resilience--the ability to protect the integrity of every aspect of the system and withstand unpredictable threats or changes, and then emerge stronger. Districts must embrace multi-layered endpoint security solutions and the latest technologies, such as unified platforms and extended detection and response (XDR) capabilities, in order to protect their networks.
