SecureAge launches global Grant Program to support schools and non-profit organisations with cybersecurity solutions at no cost

April 16, 2021 - SecureAge Technology, a leading global data and endpoint protection company, announced the launch of its Grant Program which was introduced to help educational institutions and non-profit organizations safeguard their endpoints amid the growing number of cyberattacks. The grant program aims to create a safer and more productive environment for research and learning as traditional anti-virus solutions are only able to catch known threats and do not offer personalised protection. SecureAge’s grant initiative will give recipient schools, students, and non-profit entities access to SecureAPlus, an intuitive endpoint protection software that can detect known and unknown threats, at no cost. 

Schools and non-profits are target rich environments for bad actors, as evidenced by recent cyberattacks. As these institutes are often operating under budgetary constraints cybersecurity ends up being an afterthought for both sectors. That’s why SecureAge’s grant program was introduced. It alleviates the major threat vectors faced by both sectors by outfitting recipient organisations with an AI-powered endpoint protection solution that can defend systems from both known and unknown threats, file or file-less malware, and attacks from within or outside the network. 

‘Schools and non-profits have long been widely targeted because both tend to be underfunded and under trained when it comes to data protection measures and cybersecurity hygiene,’ said Dr. Teow Hin Ngair, Founder & CEO, SecureAge Technology. ‘We firmly believe that organizations of all sizes deserve greater access to tools that can offer effective protection from cyber threats, giving them the confidence they need to operate safely without worrying about being cybersecurity experts in the process. Our grant program will help these organizations achieve those goals while also easing the budgetary burdens associated with safeguarding user data from internal and external cyber threats.’ 

Last year, the FBI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued a joint statement, warning that 57% of reported ransomware attacks targeted the education sector. And a recent report from the Non-profit Technology Enterprise Network (NTEN) stated that 80% of non-profits don’t have a policy in place to address cybersecurity incidents. 

‘The pandemic induced shift to remote work and distance learning has given bad actors an advantage, resulting in more focused and more creative attacks that exploit new and existing cybersecurity weaknesses,’ added Dr. Ngair. 

Any educational institution or non-profit organization that signs up to be a partner of SecureAge’s Grant Program will get unlimited SecureAPlus Pro licenses for all Windows workstations and servers in their respective schools and offices. Individuals that sign up for a SecureAPlus Portal (SAPPortal) account using their school or non-profit company email domain will enjoy a 4-year SecureAPlus Essentials license, when they add their PC or laptop to the device list. 

SecureAPlus is an AI-enabled endpoint protection software for Windows & Android that safeguards devices against multiple attack vectors including malware threats and zero-day attacks from within or outside an organization’s network. SecureAPlus offers application control, multiple cloud-base anti-virus scanners, policy control and multi-PC management. These features are backed by SecureAge’s APEX AI-powered engine which is designed to spot and learn from malicious attack patterns on endpoints without relying on definition updates.
