Back to school 2020 – stay safe online with ESET Internet Security

Next story

Bratislava –  The 2020 back to school season will be unlike any other — whether you’re heading back to school physically or virtually, it is essential that students, teachers and administrators alike are protected against online threats.

COVID-19 has dramatically altered the education experience for the foreseeable future, both for school-age children and university students. For many, virtual classrooms replaced physical ones overnight, turning living rooms into classrooms and disrupting technological systems already in place.

With students relying on home devices and networks often shared by multiple users, it has never been more important to secure your networks and personal and professional data. As virtual schooling becomes more commonplace, a longer-term concern for educators and students alike is how to maintain online privacy and data protection as personal information, such as grades and behavioral reports, need to be shared. For those returning to the physical classroom, abiding by hygienic and social distancing guidelines will be critical, and teachers can focus on the physical safety of their students once they know their online experience is secured.

ESET Internet Security offers advanced protection from hackers, scams and malware, and is a multi-layered security system that protects you against all types of online and offline threats. Key features include:

Multiplatform protection – Secure all your devices with a single license. No matter whether you run on a Mac, Windows, Android or Linux, we’ve got you covered!

ESET Consumer & IoT Segment Director, Mária Trnková, commented, “So many aspects of life have changed dramatically over the course of the year, and education is no exception.
