KanREN, a member-based consortium providing Internet and network technologies to education, and public service institutions in Kansas announced that in response to recent cybersecurity threats effective immediately all connected members will receive a suite of cybersecurity services at no additional cost. The suite of cybersecurity services will also be extended to any K-12 educational institution that joins the KanREN network. The suite of cybersecurity services includes: DDoS scrubbing, Akamai ETP DNS scrubbing, Nessus vulnerability scanning, honeypot monitoring and notification.

“This year our educational institutions have faced a number of unprecedented challenges. Protecting their networks from cyber security threats should not be one of them. KanREN is committed to helping our members focus on educating students, not worrying about cyber security threats,” said Cort Buffington, KanREN’s Executive Director. “By offering these security services at no additional fee, we are adding a significant layer of defense to their front lines, without adding to their bottom lines. It’s the right thing to do.”
