Save the Children is one of the most prominent international NGOs in the world, dedicated to improving and protecting the lives of children around the globe. Founded in the UK in 1919, it has helped to supply some of the most impoverished children in the world with access to shelter, food, safe drinking water, healthcare and education. 

Endpoint Protection (EPP) and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) are particularly important for providing a baseline of security across Save the Children’s large, diffuse IT estate. In line with wider efforts to establish a more centralised approach to IT and security management, Save The Children needed a solution with a high level of functionality that could administer a large number of endpoints from a single point. 

Due to the sensitive nature of their work, strong cybersecurity capabilities are extremely important.
