Frequently Asked Questions

How prevalent are ransomware attacks in education data breaches?

According to the Verizon 2023 Data Breach Investigations Report, “Ransomware was responsible for almost one-third of all breaches in the Educational Services vertical.”

How does SpinOne help educational institutions reduce storage costs for Google Workspace and Microsoft 365?

Google and Microsoft announced that they no longer offer unlimited storage for Google Workspace and M365 for Education, which can cause huge additional costs. Institutions can reduce the impact on budget by archiving the data of inactive users to the SpinOne platform to free up Google Workspace and M365 storage.

Why is the SaaS data of educational institutions at risk?

According to Gartner, “Educational institutions are viewed as a target-rich environment due to the large amount of sensitive data, intellectual property and personally identifiable information they maintain for students, research and operations.”
