Virtue Technologies aims to provide our education clients with the optimum network solution.
We are an Independent Telecommunications Provider which means we can create bespoke, flexible solutions as we are not tied into any single suppliers. This means you know that you will get the solution designed specifically for your needs and not an “off the peg” product.
We try to ensure our customers receive a level of service that they won’t find anywhere else and have invested a lot of time analysing various network technologies to ensure we only offer the most cost effective solutions that are as future-proof as possible.
We tailor the ideal solution for you, with maximum flexibility and scalability for future growth. These solutions include:
Our DNS (domain name system) hosting package means you have full control over your domain name including all .sch and .uk domains. This allows efficient management of all DNS services.
We partner with Sophos to bring you the Sophos Security Gateway. This combines the latest security technologies into a single appliance, allowing you to easily customise, configure and monitor protection specifically for your organisation – all through a simple browser based console.
The Sophos Web Protection filter prevents malware infections and lets you create easy policies that set where and how students and staff spend time online. Everything is tracked so you can see what people are doing and make changes quickly and easily as required.
Sophos Network Protection includes an intrusion prevention system, denial-of-service protection, advanced routing and more.
The Sophos system keeps malicious data out and enables secure access to your authorised users
Private Wide Area Network (PWAN)
Turn your internet connections into true private circuits without the need for overly complicated VPN setups with Virtue Technologies PWAN.
We build a dedicated private core network for your school which is then protected by a dedicated firewall customised to your specific requirements – Wide Area Networking has never been so easy to configure, administer or secure.
A Private Wide Area Network provides a collection of schools such as a Secondary and its associated Feeder Primary Schools with a private network with absolute security and without the need of VPN tunnels.
Virtue Technologies’ PWAN has been designed to work across all of our connectivity solutions.
