Grand Rapids Community College Deploys vArmour to Protect Student Data and Applications


the leading data center and cloud security company, today announced that Grand
Rapids Community College
(GRCC) has selected vArmour to protect
their critical applications and student data.

In light of rising data breach attempts across the education industry,
GRCC has prioritized the protection of its core applications that
process the personal and financial information of more than 27,000
students each year. vArmour delivers application controls that reduce
the risk to these applications, including end-to-end visibility,
automated security policy creation, and policy enforcement. As a result,
GRCC has quickly achieved strict security and compliance goals across
their virtual environment without complex solution deployments or months
of manual policy development.

"Of the solutions we evaluated, only vArmour could deliver
application-level security controls without requiring us to purchase
additional appliances and stitch together multiple products," said
Donovan Wallace, Director of IT Infrastructure at GRCC. "Deployment was
simple; we were able to move from policy computation mode to enforcement
in under three hours."

GRCC joins a large number of educational institutions using vArmour for
application visibility, policy creation, and enforcement across virtual,
physical, cloud, and container environments.

"Our customers have to secure critical applications across large
environments, often under limited budgets and resources," said vArmour
CEO Timothy Eades. "This is especially true for our customers in the
education industry, and the simplicity we bring to application control
and policy automation is making this possible for GRCC and many others."
