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

vArmour, 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."
