Higher Education

Colleges and universities need to maintain secure communications and collaboration between campuses, administration, faculty and students.  From helping hundreds of universities we see see much closer contact with students today, thanks to the shared calendar and global address list that comes with a single Office 365 tenant for the entire campus. Confining student/teacher conversations to office hours is a thing of the past. It’s very effective to help students by spending five minutes on Skype for Business Online, sharing my screen to demonstrate how to solve a problem. The faster issues are cleared up for a student, the faster that student can progress with learning.

K - 12

We help K-12 institutions with their secure Communications and Collaboration daily.  Enabling can assess your situation and determine the best solution for your organization: a full Cloud solution or a hybrid architecture which combines Cloud and premise-based solutions.

Many organizations are digitizing their content and looking at all of the new Microsoft Collaboration tools to decide which works best for them.  We can assess based upon your needs which applications and tools are a good fit.

Enabling shares Microsoft’s philosophy about security to Protect, Detect, and Respond. Many capabilities are free with Office 365 or Azure subscriptions, but they are not activated and configured by default. We can help you configure the right security settings for your school. Take Volusia County Schools: we were able to help them automate their phishing prevention and remediation with our PhishHunter solution. They went from 24 hours to detection to 7 minutes!
