MEDINA, Ohio, April 20, 2005, Central Command(R), a leading provider of antivirus solutions for educational institutions and businesses, announced today that Parma City Schools in Ohio has chosen its Vexira(R) Antivirus to protect its school district against the latest viruses, spyware and other threats.
Parma City Schools selected Vexira Antivirus because of its ease-of-use, flexibility and virus detection reliability. The school district, which includes the cities of Parma, Parma Heights, and Seven Hills, provides a safe, virus-free computing experience for the faculty and students at an affordable price. Parma City Schools has established a solid reputation for their emphasis on a strong, integrated and connected curriculum and advanced administrative computing solutions. Taking advantage of and integrating new computer technologies is among the district’s priorities. Vexira Antivirus will be installed on nearly 4,000 workstations and servers throughout the school district, keeping them safe from the latest viruses and other malicious applications existing today.
“Parma City Schools chose Vexira to replace McAfee ASP because after reviewing the product’s features, ease of deployment, cost, and the responsiveness of your pre-sale tech support group, we felt confident that all of the users we found–who were already using Vexira–had made a smart choice and we wanted to join them. Vexira is an affordable, solid choice for school districts. It frees up field technician time to work on problems other than virus issues. In addition, it’s compatible with a variety of operating systems, which is important in school districts with older equipment,” said Mike Hartenstein, Executive Director at Parma City Schools.
“We are extremely pleased to have been selected by Parma City Schools to protect its students and staff against viruses and other forms of malware,” said Keith Peer, CEO and President at Central Command. “As the number of worm and virus attacks continue to increase, deploying and maintaining reliable antivirus software becomes a necessity. With our Safe@School program, we can offer educational institutions the required security defenses without putting a strain on their budget. Thousands of schools around the world are selecting Vexira Antivirus because of the quality of the software and the services they receive from us.”
Taking advantage of Central Command’s Safe@School program, Parma City Schools is able to fortify its security defenses with enterprise-class antivirus software at extremely affordable costs. Central Command’s Safe@School program offers schools, colleges, and universities special educational pricing as low as $1.79 per computer.
