Meet cloudDNA & iboss at Connect@Bett, London


Bett UK, the world’s leading education technology show, is back March 29th – 30th at ExCeL,London and we’ll be there with iboss, showcasing their Zero Trust Secure Service Edge for Education solution.

In addition to a packed agenda of keynotes and breakout sessions, Connect@Bett will offer attendees the opportunity to connect and collaborate via a completely new, tech-enabled meetings programme. We’re attending Connect@Bett with iboss, to launch our new strategic partnership with a vendor that already has a huge install base in the US Education sector, but why iboss and why now?


Increased cyber attacks UK education establishments

2022 was an unprecedented year for cyber attacks on UK education establishments with a 44% year on year increase reported to Infosecurity Magazine. Balancing student expectation and digital reputation with robust security and data loss prevention is only the start of the challenge for secure digital service delivery in the education sector.

Students accessing intellectual property from untrusted devices, staff that access sensitive information from the campus and home office, remote learning digital experience expectations, partner organisation collaboration and the wide range of threats from external sources such as malware, ransomware and phishing attacks. With a staggering 88% of further education, and 92% of higher education establishments identifying breaches or attacks in the latest UK Government Cyber Security Breaches Survey (July 22), it’s clear that this risk is way beyond the capabilities of traditional IT security infrastructure like VPNs and network firewalls.
