Security, Protection &

Device Management

Before you read on about the services, we offer, please read and share the alert and top tips above. And read more security guidance and an overview of LGfL's 12 layers of protection here.

Security School Report is a tool that looks at your school's 'digital footprint' and checks it for known weaknesses in security. We can then provide you with a report detailing your vulnerabilities; and more importantly, how to fix them.

WebScreen is a flexible, safe web filter designed specifically for schools, whether a small primary or a large MAT. Using industry-grade Netsweeper technology, WebScreen functionality helps streamline a complex task: keeping children safe online.

MailProtect is an email filtering service, offering users versatile functionality and protection from email-borne spam, viruses, and abuse.

Gridstore is a resilient, encrypted, off-site backup storage management platform that uses Redstor's Enterprise Server Edition (ESE) software. Backup your “mission critical” data automatically and on a daily basis to help comply with the GDPR requirements for your schools data

Using Egress you can make sure data is securely emailed to the right recipient, easily share large files, collaborate on documents, and provide third parties with a way to securely share data with you.

LGfL HomeProtect is a Cloud based web filtering solution for devices when they aren’t in school.

The Malwarebytes software cleans up malware and other malicious software on devices that may make its way into your school. With a centralised cloud console, there is no need to visit each PC, and scheduled scans can be done from anywhere. Deployment to your endpoint is quick and management is simple.

Meraki Mobile Device Management - enables secure management and control of all school devices (including PCs) as well as providing features such as the remote deletion of data (a GDPR requirement).

Sophos Intercept X employs a comprehensive defence-in-depth approach to endpoint protection rather than simply relying on one primary security technique. This is the “the power of the plus” – a combination of leading foundational (traditional) and modern (next-gen) techniques. Intercept X integrates the industry’s top-rated malware detection and exploit protection with built-in endpoint detection and response (EDR).

Phishing is a business, but it doesn’t stop at the school gate. If you are a busy teacher trying to sort as many emails as possible before the next lesson, it can be so easy to click on a suspicious email. Especially since they often don’t even look suspicious anymore.

We can’t all become cybersecurity gurus, so what’s the answer? Part of the solution may be the phishing simulation and training tool Sophos Phish Threat, on offer to all LGfL schools as part of their subscription.

LGfL schools are being offered the use of Sophos Home antivirus software free of charge to staff at LGfL schools. This commercial edition of Sophos protects up to 10 personal (not school! Use the other Sophos products for that) devices (PCs or Macs) per household.
