Comodo: Cloud Native Cyber Security Platform

Rosedale School

COMPANY OVERVIEW

Rosedale Union School District Is A Kindergarten – 8th Grade Public School District That Educates More Than 5,800 Students At Nine Schools. A school district in Bakersfield, California, the Rosedale Union School District looks to educate all students in the district to make them career and college ready. Nine schools recognized by the California Department of Education as Distinguished, Gold Ribbon, and National Blue Ribbon operate under the school district. A key objective of the Rosedale Union School District is providing a child-centered learning environment with high expectations for student achievement and parent involvement through common goals. To this end, a comprehensive 21st-century core curriculum with high standards is emphasized and the diversity of learners is valued so that each student will reach their full potential. Relevant and practical guidance is given to students, which improves self-worth and self-discipline through critical and creative thinking, as well as, the acquisition of curricular and technical skills. The Rosedale Union School District looks to achieve this through the use of technology.

THEIR CHALLENGE

To deliver the 21st-century learning methods to students that allow it to achieve its mission and goals, the Rosedale Union School District wanted a solution that would make it easy and secure to manage the computers on its network. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the nine schools under the Rosedale Union School District to move to a distance learning environment to conduct classes and provide educational material. However, the Rosedale Union School District saw this as an opportunity to try modern learning methods rather than a challenge the district could do without. However, the school district was aware of the potential threats of conducting learning in an online environment.

The Rosedale Union School District Partnered with Comodo to Make Its Distance Learning Environment Secure and Flexible. “We evaluated Palo Alto Traps and ESET but decided to work with Comodo because of all the tools that were wrapped into a single package,” revealed Smith. The Rosedale School Union District chose Comodo’s Dragon Platform with Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP), which is a patent-pending auto containment technology with active breach protection that neutralizes ransomware, malware, and cyber-attacks. Comodo’s AEP also utilizes a Default Deny Platform to provide complete protection against zero-day threats while having no impact on end-user experience or workflows. Additionally, Comodo’s Valkyrie analyzes and gives a trusted verdict for 100% of files on a network. Lastly, Comodo’s platform shares intelligence and is, therefore, more secure than disparate products that claim the best of the breed but don’t share information. Comodo has architected its cybersecurity product to maximize intelligent sharing between every component of the platform, therefore providing superior security, which is a sentiment shared by the team at Rosedale School District. “I love the ability to contain any threat that pops up on a computer and the ability to be alerted via email of possible infections. This allows us to be proactive in containing threats, which give us better protection. Besides, now that we work in a distance learning environment due to COVID-19, this solution has lent us a lot of flexibility. Our ability to support our staff and teachers quickly and effectively at a distance has improved significantly,” says Smith.

THE SOLUTION

“The Rosedale Union School District Information Technology Systems Department is aimed at providing the ability to use 21st-century learning methods. We needed a comprehensive and cost-effective solution that allowed us to manage all computers on our network and protect our end-users,” says Britton Smith, Director of Information Technology at the Rosedale Union School District As such, the district’s IT department was approached to find a solution that provided the flexibility and security needed to conduct and managing online or distant learning for its students. The IT department then started searching for ways to consolidate its security and IT management. And this is when they came across Comodo.

Comodo allows Rosedale School Union District and the like to continue providing quality education to students in times where social distancing protocols have limited in-person learning.
According to Alan Knepfer, President and Chief Revenue Office at Comodo, “Educational institutions have done a tremendous job with ensuring learning continuity during remote instruction. We’re happy to partner with this school district to help them maintain their standards for excellent curriculum and instruction.”
