How Your Educational Institution Can Benefit From Boxcryptor
Boxcryptor encrypts your cloud and protects all your sensitive and personal data. The cloud makes your data available everywhere and it protects your files from loss through server problems. With additional encryption by Boxcryptor you fulfill important security criteria defined by the GDPR of the European Union and other privacy laws. Additionally, after a short introduction session, the program can be handled intuitively.
Boxcryptor – Predestined for Data Management in Education
With the cloud, you arrived in the 21st century and therefore, in the age of digitalization. Thanks to Boxcryptor you can take this step into the future in a secure way. The cloud in combination with Boxcryptor enables you to simply manage your data across several devices and machines, wherever you are. With the features of Boxcryptor for Teams, you can manage access permissions for users or groups, you can manage your users in our admin interface, reset forgotten passwords or set up two-factor authentication. If your organisation uses Single Sign-on, you can integrate Boxcryptor in your SSO solution.
The Principle of Boxcryptor for Educational Institutions
Boxcryptor adds end-to-end encryption with zero knowledge standard to your cloud. Simply put, it makes sure that no one but you and your authorized team can access your data. Not even us, since we do not know your password. That way, even sensitive data can be stored in the cloud, in compliance with privacy laws. With Boxcryptor, the cloud becomes even more secure than your own hosted servers. Data privacy and server maintanance are outsourced to specialists. As a consequence, valuable working time of your employees is freed up for the important things.
TU Dresden Case Study: 95.000 Licenses for Two Universities
The Technical University of Dresden initiated a major IT security project in summer 2019: The entire university – all employees and students – received Boxcryptor licenses to protect personal data, research results, and sensitive data in the cloud. Together with RWTH Aachen University, 95,000 licenses were purchased to increase the data security of these two universities and to facilitate collaboration and research. Find out how and why they work with Boxcryptor and how we supported the university during the introduction of the software.
