How we protect your data.
When it comes to student information, we care for your children as if they were our own.
Your district faces a terrifying range of cyber threats. But you shouldn’t face them alone.
Since 2016, American school districts have been targeted by over a thousand distributed cyberattacks. Districts who fell victim to ransomware, cryptolocker, or DDoS attacks have been forced to shut down networks, close schools, and incur millions of dollars in damages.
We work tirelessly to keep OnCourse schools above the fray. Our world-class infrastructure provides your school system with more stopping power than any district can afford on their own.
Staff and parents have anytime-anywhere access to OnCourse.
Tbps of DDoS Protection
Give your district industry-leading web-application firewall protection against common DDoS attacks.
Data Snapshot Interval
In the hypothetical event of a major catastrophic failure across all critical infrastructure, maximum data loss will be no more than one hour.
The Nuts and Bolts of Data Security
Your OnCourse infrastructure is sophisticated and built for extreme redundancy. Web Application Firewall (WAF) technology renders your system virtually invisible from bad actors. OnCourse comes equipped with stout defenses, including:
- DDoS suppression
- Malicious traffic detection
- Redundant, geographically-distributed data centers
- Stateless application design
- Routine penetration testing
- SAS-70 audits
- TLS 1.3 encryption
Promise not to write your password on a sticky note; we’ve covered you.
Does OnCourse handle our backups for us?
Yes. Backup logs are continuously updated to disk locally and shipped to a remote data center facility. Nightly full backups are committed to disk and tape. Backups are stored offsite in a secure facility.
How quickly could OnCourse recover in the event of a major failure?
OnCourse's infrastructure is built for redundancy, with full warm-site backup capabilities in geographically-distributed locations. Even in the event of a major catastrophic failure across all critical infrastructure, snapshots are taken every 60 minutes, ensuring that maximum data loss will be no more than one hour.
Does OnCourse support multi-factor authentication?
Yes. OnCourse allows your district to activate MFA using Time-Based One-Time Password (TOTP) standard
