“I called support and they were great during my disaster recovery (DR) event. I cannot say enough good things about the quickness, and them educating me about the steps and processes. I was able to get a backup out of the cloud, reimport and load the data onto our CFO’s laptop. He was back to work within 48 hours.”

Donelson Christian Academy is an independent, private school serving students from preschool through 12th grade (K-12). DCA uses Unitrends, Kaseya's enterprise-grade business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) solution to support their mixed environment as well as integrate with a cloud service dedicated to off-site, long-term data retention.

Virginia Tech is a public research university with over 37,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Their team has reached levels of IT efficiency they never thought would be possible, by Kaseya's VSA, the first and only unified RMM solution. 

Waverly School District is a small school district with about 347 student users and 67 staff users. They were able to leverage IT Glue to ensure secure documentation of all information, including configurations, device tracking, passwords and more.


Canisius High School is a Catholic, private college-preparatory school founded in 1870 for boys in grades 9 through 12, in Buffalo, New York. The school offers a challenging academic program and numerous extracurricular clubs and sports. Founded in 1870, the school also has historical ties to Canisius College.


Canisius High School’s tech team needed to increase security awareness and create a strong security culture to reduce the school’s cyberattack risk. The solution needed to be suitable for training employees in multiple roles at a variety of technology experience levels with a big library of lessons available. It was also essential that the solution be simple for the small IT team to manage, preferably with automation features to minimize the amount of work their busy IT administrator would need to do to conduct effective training.

Goals of Canisius High School – ID Agent Relationship:

  • Train employees in proper security habits
  • Increase employee phishing resistance to reduce cyberattack risk
  • Build a strong security culture that provides a strong defensive foundation


BullPhish ID offered the tools that were needed to improve the faculty and staff’s security practices through education. The solution easily integrated with Azure, making it a snap to use with Azure Active Directory. Simple campaign setup meant that training could start right away. Plus, the deep library of plug-and-play phishing simulations ensured users could be sent phishing simulations that matched up with software and services used regularly, increasing believability.
