Solution to secure Skool4Kidz digitised curriculum in M365 with in-transit encryption and unique security capabilities
Canberra, Australia and Singapore — archTIS Limited (ASX:AR9, OTCQB:ARHLF), a global provider of data-centric software solutions for the secure collaboration of sensitive information, today announced it has expanded its contract with Skool4Kidz with additional NC Protect 190 licenses sold since they initially purchased the product through the company’s ASEAN distributor i-Sprint Innovations.
Singapore-based Skool4Kidz Preschools is an Anchor Operator and a member of the Kinderland International Education group with over 40 years of Early Childhood expertise. The infant and childcare chain is widely recognized for its Integrated Thematic programs supported by Technology. Skool4Kidz incorporates coding skills and outdoor play in their technology-supported curriculum to prepare preschoolers with critical 21st-century life skills while meeting children’s various learning needs and supporting their holistic development.
The school’s technology-first approach also extends to Skool4Kidz’s proprietary curriculum resources. Skool4Kidz embarked on a digital transformation project to convert printed teaching resources to digital versions that could be accessed by teachers and management both in school and remotely.
Already a Microsoft 365 (M365) customer, Skool4Kidz wanted to store and share the curriculum resources with teachers using the collaboration platform. The challenge was how to secure the files as they were downloaded to the teacher’s laptops.
Catherine Liew, Director, Curriculum at Skoool4Kids, said, “We wanted to see how we could continue to leverage our Microsoft 365 document management tools without switching to another file-sharing system, so we turned to i-Sprint Innovations, a leading Singapore-based company specialised in secure access management solutions, for help addressing this challenge.”
“We looked at a few other solutions, but no one could accommodate encryption as the file was being downloaded onto the teacher’s device. What made NC Protect stand out is the software’s at rest and in motion encryption capabilities that integrate with Microsoft Purview Information Protection. It provides in-transit protection for both Microsoft Office files and our interactive teaching aids created in Mimio which the other solutions did not offer,” said Liew.
NC Protect is a complementary add-on solution to the Microsoft 365 suite that provides attribute-based access control (ABAC) and granular data protection capabilities to enhance Microsoft security capabilities. With NC Protect, access and data protection policies are automatically adjusted based on a combination of user context and file sensitivity to prevent accidental and malicious data loss and misuse. Additionally, if a sensitive document requires encryption, it can encrypt the content immediately – whether the file is at rest or in motion.
Daniel Lai, Managing Director and CEO of archTIS stated, “We are pleased that working together with i-Sprint we were able to solve Skool4Kidz digital transformation and M365 collaborations challenges. Extending archTIS’ footprint into global markets through trusted distributors like iSprint has given us the ability to reach international markets, verticals, and customers we otherwise would not have access to.”
