Why the Texas A&M System turned to Syncplicity
The faculty, students, and staff who comprise Texas A&M System universities and agencies are dedicated to providing services, performing research, and offering educational programs that enhance the lives of the state’s citizens and improve its communities. In order to achieve their research, education, and service goals, they needed to share sensitive data, such as student records, curricula, and research content.
The IT team is a vital resource in helping Texas A&M University System achieve its mission of improving the synergy and enhancing short-term and long-term decision making between its constituent organizations. EFSS was an important initiative for them, but they needed visibility into what data was being shared, and where it was going.
Texas A&M System’s IT team also required enhanced control over content. And it needed to prevent the future use of consumer-grade, shadow IT file sharing tools, which wouldn’t be able to meet the University’s security requirements or offer much in the way of audits, reporting, single sign on, centralized security controls, or granular controls around users, devices, folders, or files.
“The more we learned about Syncplicity and its security capabilities, the surer we were that it was the right solution for Texas A&M University Systems,” says Danny Miller, Texas A&M System’s Chief Information Security Officer. “With Syncplicity, we found a powerful, world-class solution that lets users safely share sensitive data with colleagues inside the Texas A&M System, and with partners outside of it. Meanwhile, IT retains complete control of the information, and has visibility into who’s accessing it even after it’s shared with users outside of our infrastructure.”
