August 2016 – UK. The Malaysian Ministry of Education has selected NetSupport’s IT Asset Management solution, NetSupport DNA (Education Edition), to support the Malaysia Education Blueprint 2013-2025 project.
Taking place over a 13-year period and across 10,000 Malaysian schools, the Blueprint project aims to provide all Malaysian students with equal access to quality education to drive achievement and equip them with the knowledge and skills required to allow them to succeed in the 21st century.
Of the 11 areas targeted to help transform the system, NetSupport DNA will support the seventh, to: “leverage ICT to scale-up quality learning across Malaysia”. As the Ministry invests in more devices to gradually improve the device-to-student ratio from approximately 1:30 in 2011 to 1:10 by 2020, NetSupport DNA will help support the effective management of a school’s technology from a single point. The software not only provides schools with a complete overview of all IT assets and activity with features such as inventory and licensing tools, but also helps safeguard students against online risks with keyword monitoring and other dedicated tools – whilst protecting a school’s network with its proactive alerts, USB endpoint security, internet metering and restrictions.
Commenting on NetSupport DNA’s inclusion in the project, Managing Director of NetSupport, Al Kingsley, said: “We are thrilled to be assisting the Ministry of Education on another of their projects. NetSupport DNA is designed to help schools easily monitor and manage their IT assets and highlight where cost savings can be made. The inclusion of the in-built Safeguarding module really adds value to the MOE’s project by helping to protect students as they use school technology.”
