DataGuard is a ClassLink Roster Server upgrade that empowers schools to take control of the data they share with vendors. 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 helps you minimize the security risks associated with data sharing because sensitive PII is always protected.
DataGuard is a new Roster Server upgrade available for ClassLink customers to purchase.
When sharing student and staff PII data with vendors, less is more. DataGuard helps schools protect student PII when sharing class rosters with vendor partners. DataGuard is best suited for rostered applications that require collecting PII data but don’t necessarily need it.
Protecting Personally Identifiable Information is crucial for schools sharing roster data with vendors. DataGuard allows you to mask key PII fields, including first, last, middle, and class names, using dynamic letter scrambles. You’ll gain peace of mind knowing sensitive information is protected.
Sharing sensitive PII data can make your school more vulnerable to cyberattacks, especially if there’s a data breach outside your school environment. DataGuard helps you minimize the risks associated with data sharing and protects your schools against cyber criminals.

We recommend talking to your instructional team and vendor partners before using DataGuard. For example, some applications provide user reports for teachers and administrators. These reports use first and last names to make sense to the report reader. Talking to both instructional team members and your vendor partners will help you make wise choices about when to use DataGuard.
ClassLink is actively working with our vendor partners to drive awareness and adoption of DataGuard. Watch for further announcements on this powerful new approach to protecting data.
