Forsyte I.T. Solutions and California IT in Education (CITE) Collaboration

Share This Post

Forsyte I.T. Solutions is excited to announce our collaboration with California IT in Education (CITE) as the Cybersecurity Resource Partner, offering 24x7x365 managed security services for K12 in California. What does this mean for CITE members? K12 education institutions will have access to Guardian 365, Forsyte’s Microsoft Managed XDR Verified managed security services, and top-tier security solutions at discounted prices. With an easy-to-adopt security approach and onboarding process you’ll be able to secure Guardian 365 security managed services directly from CITE’s papers for your convenience!

Forsyte provides a managed service offering called Guardian 365 – focused on providing 24x7x365 protection, detection, and remediation to secure your operations from increasing cybersecurity threats. Guardian 365 was specifically developed with educational institutions in mind. Working with the Microsoft 365 licenses you already own, we deploy your full security stack, optimize usage and ensure end-to-end protection for your environment.

An important goal of Guardian 365 for K-12 organizations is the ease of obtaining cybersecurity insurance and quickly identifying and remediating vulnerabilities. Our gap analysis identifies security shortcomings and solutions you need to obtain cybersecurity insurance based on carrier requirements. Our security services and implementations also help keep the cost of cybersecurity insurance premiums as low as possible. Another component of the gap analysis is our pen testing services. By testing your environment from all angles, not a stone goes unturned to ensure your complete protection.

CITE members in the K-12 environment have a responsibility to protect sensitive data including sensitive student and financial data. According to SonicWall’s 2023 State of Cyber Threat Report, ransomware attacks on K-12 schools were up 827% from 2021 to 2022 and are the most prevalent type of attack K-12 schools experience. Part of our pen testing services focuses specifically on ransomware attacks, helping customers quickly validate whether their environments are vulnerable to these attacks. We also test areas such as website penetration, internal host penetration, weak credential exploit, third-party framework, asset profiling and full penetration.

We understand the budget constraints of a K-12 institution and how difficult it is to bring cybersecurity management in-house. Or, if the budget is there, being able to find someone with the talent and skillset to sufficiently monitor and protect your environment is a challenge. And at that, 24x7x365 is out of the question for one individual to maintain effectively. An MSSP with a managed Security Operations Center (managed SOC) team of experts is your solution. With Guardian 365.

Benefits for CITE Members:

  • Access to Cutting-Edge Technology: Members of CITE will have the exclusive opportunity to harness the power of Guardian 365, our state-of-the-art cybersecurity service.

  • Enhanced Collaboration: CITE members can tap into the collective knowledge and expertise of a vast cybersecurity community. This partnership encourages cross-industry collaboration, the sharing of insights, and solutions for common challenges.

Forsyte I.T. Solutions’ partnership with CITE represents a significant step forward in our mission to provide world-class cybersecurity solutions. We look forward to a fruitful collaboration that will strengthen the industry as a whole and better protect organizations from the growing cybersecurity threats on the horizon.

Guardian 365 is now available to CITE members, offering a powerful way to enhance cybersecurity resilience and protection. Together, we can shape the future of cybersecurity and safeguard the digital world.
