Carahsoft's Cybersecurity Solutions
The New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA), created by the state Legislature in 1914, provides training, advocacy, and support to advance public education and promote the achievement of all students through effective governance. All New Jersey school district boards of education are automatically members of NJSBA, while New Jersey’s public charter schools may enroll.
NJSBA has developed a program, NJSBA’s TEC (Technology for Education and Career), that will enable its members to purchase technological tools and services at reduced costs; the program assists schools by providing cost-saving alternatives for creating, establishing and continuing the most current digital-learning opportunities for students. Additionally, the program can help schools prepare for online student assessment and enhance disaster recovery capability.
The New Jersey School Boards Association has partnered with Carahsoft Technology Corp. and its reseller ecosystem to help school districts and member charter schools throughout New Jersey better manage and reduce cybersecurity risk. The new partnership will provide access to a broad range of cybersecurity-related software, hardware, implementation services and training at discounted pricing. Through the contract’s cooperative purchasing clauses, these solutions are also available to K-12 academic institutions and School Board Associations nationwide.
Carahsoft’s Cyber Team will work with NJSBA to accurately match its cybersecurity portfolio with NJSBA customer’s specific needs to provide proven, cost-effective protection for critical networks and digital information. These solutions address the five functions outlined in the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, enabling NJSBA entities to identify, protect, detect, respond and recover to an increasing number of cyber incidents and to broader range of cyber threats that schools are facing today.

Identify: Solutions that identify and inventory assets and vulnerabilities that reside on devices, applications and networks. They will help you gain an institutional understanding of what systems need to be protected and help to identify your current attack surface.
Protect: Prevent or limit the impact of cyber-attacks through access control, data security, patch management and maintenance, and protective methods. These solutions help you protect various asset classes like workstations, network devices, software applications, networks, data, and users.
Detect: These solutions will allow you to detect cybersecurity events and anomalies that occur within devices, applications, and networks. They can assess the potential impact of an event by, discovering anomalous activity, continuously monitor information assets, hunt for intrusions, and provide security analytics.
Respond: Take action and respond once a cybersecurity event is detected. These solutions assist by eradicating intrusion footholds and assessing the damage caused by an attack.
Recover: These solutions help you return to normal operations after an undesirable cybersecurity event by restoring capabilities, services that were impaired and documenting lessons learned.
