Services and tools that safeguard the institution’s computing resources and data. Institution IT provides services such as desktop configuration, mobile device management, authentication systems, antivirus software, firewalls, and network monitoring.

Patch Management

Protects your computers with automatic security updates for operating systems and other popular software.

Device Registration

To ensure devices that can access the institution data are only used by identified people, you need to complete a simple registration process. Registration associates your identity (that is, your amritavidya ID) with each of your devices, and will eventually allow you to manage them.

Secure Email

The institution enlists third party solutions like Gateway Anti Virus (GAV) and Spam filter to address unsolicited email messages. The software evaluates each individual message based on a complex set of rules and assigns values based on a number of criteria. Beside this, physical security measures are also taken. Spam control utilities and virus scanners are deployed to ensure security constraints

Encryption - Whole Disk

Managed Anti-Virus

Mobile Device Management

enables you to manage your mobile device through the institution's web-based tool, and configures a profile that gives you secure access to internal systems while protecting the data on your device.

Vulnerability Scanner

finds security vulnerabilities in web applications and other network services and helps you remediate them.

SSL Certificates

An SSL certificate is a signed electronic guarantee that verifies the authenticity of a particular server. It's used for providing web pages through an encrypted connection. Any service accessible by SSL must have a certificate, including any web server with encrypted or “secure” content.

Secure File Storage provides a method of transmitting and storing Restricted and Confidential Data. Individual and group accounts are available to faculty and staff.

Virtual Private Network

ICTS VPN service allows any Amrita affiliate to connect to our resources remotely from any available network connection almost anywhere in the world: including from home, from many hotels, and even from within some company networks
