7 of 8 Ivy League Schools Rely on Code42

The best insider risk and data protection for higher education.

Information is your lifeblood. Protect every file, all the time.

From research data, to student data and records, healthcare information, donor data, pending patents; your institution’s data is paramount. Not only is it important to ensure that data is protected from ransomware and accidental deletion, you need to make sure that it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands, whether malicious or not. For researchers, it could be their life’s work. If research data is lost or published by someone else, this could impact current and future funding and/or harm to the University’s reputation. If PII or FERPA data gets into the wrong hands, there may be legal or financial ramifications as well as significant reputational damage, causing enrollment rates to drop or for a decrease in donations.

Code42 products offer insider risk protection and data protection designed for the unique challenges of educational institutions. When data is affected by loss, leak or misuse, Code42 helps you investigate what happened, and quickly recover any affected files. Our solution automatically and continuously protects every file on every device, so no matter what happens, you always have access to your data and understand where it went, helping you stay in compliance and preserving all data.

The higher education advantage

Get research-grade protection
Code42 includes file collection and recovery capabilities that meet the stringent standards of the Higher Education Internet2 community as an Internet2 Net+ cloud solution. No other provider can say the same.

Centrally-managed and highly protected

Secure every device, see every incident
Understand data movement across Mac, Windows and Linux endpoints. Quickly triage and prioritize data risk by searching file activity across all endpoints and cloud services in seconds, even when endpoints are offline.

Preserve data, be ready for anything
Automatic, continuous collection retains files for any number of users, for as long as the files are needed to satisfy data retention requirements. When data loss incidents like ransomware occur, recover quickly without paying a ransom.

Recover quickly
Code42 automatically collects and stores every version of every file across all endpoints, and indexes all file activity across endpoints and cloud services. When data loss strikes, Code42 recovers files faster than any competitive product — 5-9 times faster than other solutions. And with user-level encryption, no non-admin user can restore data other than their own, providing the maximum security for all users’ data.

Protection designed for education

Code42 products come with built-in functionality that meets the unique needs of the education environment.

Remote workforce


An increased remote workforce introduces new data protection and security challenges. Incydr manages the risk of off-network activity from remote employees and ensures backups aren’t interrupted.

High-value data leak


When research, PII, PHI, patent information leak, the institution is threatened. Incydr helps you detect when sensitive institutional data is at risk.

Departing employee


Most faculty and staff take data with them when they leave for their next position. Incydr makes sure your most valuable files stay within the institution.

Visiting researchers, faculty & contractors


Visiting researchers, faculty and contractors offer many benefits to an institution but also come with increased risk. This makes it critical for an institution to ensure that they do not take any of the institutions work products with them when they leave.

Shadow IT


Shadow IT compromises the ability for security teams to inventory, manage and secure institutional data. Incydr allows you to uncover and mitigate the risk of shadow IT in your institution so you can take corrective action and get ahead of trends that reveal gaps in processes, training, and technologies.

Cloud storage


You get unlimited retention, unlimited storage, and unlimited versions, because we know research grants yield more than 300 gigs of data.

Central control


A role-based solution to allow for a single admin console for all departments, academic units, and colleges makes it easy to manage deployment, monitor backups and analyze data, whether you have 100 users or 100,000+.

Simplified data holds


Automatically lock data retention policies to easily support Freedom of Information Act requests and other legal holds without affecting existing backups or impacting productivity. Our open API strategy allows you to integrate with the EDRM application you already use.

Peace of mind


Every file is protected at the source, in transit and at rest with AES 256-bit encryption.
