Due to the increase of technology access across schools in education, organisations, their staff, and students can reap numerous benefits from managed IT support services, such as increased efficiency, productivity, and security. Microsoft Office 365 is a cloud-based suite of services and applications designed specifically to meet the unique needs of the education sector. Its intelligent cloud solutions, innovative educational apps, and security features make it an ideal solution for institutions of all sizes.
Office 365 boasts a wide range of educational apps, including popular ones like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, which enable seamless collaboration and content sharing between students and teachers. Microsoft Teams is another valuable tool that offers education-specific features such as quiz creation, grading, and a centralised location for graded assignments.

Microsoft Teams is a feature-rich platform that can significantly enhance the efficiency of educational institutions. It provides a secure and accessible virtual communication and collaboration platform, enabling schools to adapt to new learning environments, such as hybrid or remote learning, and overcome physical barriers.

Swiftcomm offers a reliable and effective Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone system essential for educational institutions to maintain communication channels. Their fully managed communication package includes advanced call management features, such as call recording, conference calls, voicemail, and quick access to call history. This system enables educational staff to communicate seamlessly with their colleagues, students, and parents, making daily tasks more streamlined and manageable.
In addition to a robust phone system, mobile devices have become crucial for modern learning. Students & staff in schools rely heavily on their mobile devices to explore information, record their knowledge, and receive teacher feedback, regardless of location. As a result, educational institutions must integrate mobile devices into their curriculum, enabling students to access educational resources on the go.
Cybersecurity has become a significant concern for educational institutions due to the rising number of cyberattacks they face. These attacks can result in data breaches, financial loss, and reputational damage, making it crucial for educational institutions to prioritise cybersecurity. However, staffing shortages, funding constraints, and resource limitations often make it challenging for them to implement proper security measures.
Swiftcomm's cybersecurity professionals can help educational institutions to identify potential vulnerabilities in their systems and networks and implement proper security measures to prevent cyber attacks against education establishments. They can also train faculty and staff on cybersecurity best practices, making them more aware of the risks and how to avoid them.
By partnering with Swiftcomm, educational institutions can protect all critical data and secure systems and networks.
Cyber Essentials is a UK government-backed cybersecurity certification scheme that helps organisations of all sizes and sectors to protect themselves against common cyber threats. The strategy focuses on five key areas of cybersecurity: boundary firewalls and internet gateways, secure configuration, access control, malware protection, and patch management.
To achieve Cyber Essentials certification, an organisation must complete a self-assessment questionnaire and undergo an external vulnerability scan.
Cyber Essentials certification protects an organisation's data and systems and demonstrates to customers, partners, and stakeholders that the organisation takes cybersecurity seriously. Additionally, some contracts and tenders require suppliers to have Cyber Essentials certification as a minimum cybersecurity requirement.
