Schools ICT has been hard at work negotiating a great new deal with Sophos for Anti-Virus protection for North Yorkshire schools. The current contract runs out on the 10th June 2019 and we want to make sure that schools have protection against malicious threats. This offer is open to all our customers, whether you are an existing Sophos user or a school that would be interested in swapping to Sophos as their Threat Protection Software.
This new three-year contract is costed in a different way and the prices are based on the number of devices in your school, not pupil numbers as per the previous contract. Each Microsoft Windows school device or Apple Mac will need to be included in the upgrade so we are contacting you to gather essential background information in order to ensure your school gets an accurate quote.
Are you thinking about updating or expanding your schools ICT equipment? Do you want installation over the summer holidays?
We are now booking installations for the summer holidays.
Microsoft will end its support for the Windows 7 operating system on 14 January 2020. This means that automatic updates that protect your computer will no longer be available. Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to Windows 10 before January 2020 to benefit from all the security and updates that are released to a fully supported operating system.
As you will be aware, from 1st April 2019, the DNS and Office 365 support that was included in your broadband package have been separated and these are now standalone products. This was to allow schools to pick and choose the services that they required and save the cost on products they do not need.
