Clifton, NJ - April 12, 2023 - ClassLink, the leading provider of Identity and Access Management products for education, announces the availability of DataGuard, a powerful new tool designed to protect sensitive PII when schools share class roster data with vendor partners.
Until now, schools and their vendor partners struggled with solutions to protect shared PII data. DataGuard offers a revolutionary approach to limiting the amount of sensitive data shared, ultimately reducing risks for schools and vendors. It's a win-win for both parties and the entire industry.
Instead of giving vendor partners all the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of your students and staff, share only essential data and mask all other key fields. DataGuard allows schools to dynamically replace key PII fields with meaningless letter scrambles before sending data to a vendor through ClassLink Roster Server. DataGuard helps schools avoid unnecessarily giving vendor partners access to complete PII data for students and staff.
"When it comes to sharing student and staff PII data with vendors, less is better. DataGuard allows schools to take control of the data they share with vendors, minimizing security risks and ensuring that sensitive PII data is always protected."
DataGuard is best suited for rostered applications that require collecting PII data but don't necessarily need it. Schools can talk to their instructional team and vendor partners to make informed decisions about when to use DataGuard.
