The education vertical includes private and public education service providers, schools, colleges, and universities. It has large volumes of critical assets, such as confidential data related to applications, researches, and patents. The vertical’s deployment of advanced technologies, web, and mobile applications has increased. Educational institutions and professional trainers have adopted technologically advanced applications and products to serve a large customer base from a centralized location, which cybercriminals can exploit to access critical information. Compliance with industry regulations such as PCI DSS, GLBA, HIPAA, and FISMA is among the education vertical’s key areas of concern. Other factors such as distributed IT systems, large numbers of system users, and the general “openness” of networks make infrastructure vulnerable to cyber threats. FIM software addresses these critical issues faced by the vertical, as it constantly monitors files in the system and sends alerts if any modification is found. This proactive approach alerts the organizations to take necessary preventive actions and ensure protection against potential data breaches. The various benefits provided by FIM software and services are expected to drive the education vertical market growth.
