Police CyberAlarm facilitated by Exa

We are happy to announce that we can now facilitate Police CyberAlarm, ensuring schools can meet the new requirement as part of their insurance cover.

Described as a ‘CCTV camera,’ Police CyberAlarm is a free tool that monitors inbound traffic and records and reports any suspected malicious activity on an organisation’s firewall, enabling members to minimise any vulnerabilities and risks.

A recent update to the Cyber Cover section in the Risk Protection Arrangement (RPA) from the DfE, states that all those under this arrangement must register with Police CyberAlarm. 

Many companies have been struggling to enable the tool, however we have now put together a solution for customers to facilitate Police CyberAlarm through Draytek and FortiGate firewalls, that also works with SurfProtect. 

Founder and director Mark Cowgill said: “I’m extremely proud of our team for being able to say we’re the first to fulfil this market need. This issue was flagged to us and we quickly found a way to facilitate the access required for schools to meet their cyber cover guidelines. Our teams always work their hardest to make the customer happy and they have proved themselves yet again.”

Existing Exa customers can implement the service immediately, however, we are also offering a hosted solution that ensures a school’s Police CyberAlarm requirement is met without the need to maintain a server on their premises.

Is DarkLight connectivity best suited to you?

Dark fibre is perfect if you are looking for a potentially limitless, ultrafast connection with complete flexibility and control.

If you fully rely on the internet, a dark fibre connection could be the best option for you.

Is Leased Line connectivity best suited to you?

Leased Lines are best suited to you if you have high bandwidth requirements and need a reliable, uncontended service.

It is ideal for you if you regularly carry out large uploads and downloads, use cloud based services and a VoIP telephone system as well as video conferencing, for everyday communication.

Is GPON connectivity best suited to you?

GPON is a great choice for you if you need gigabit speeds but don’t need them to be symmetrical. It is becoming more widely available across the UK but may not be immediately available to you yet.

Is Rural Fibre connectivity best suited to you?

If you want to make the move to full fibre, but are based in a rural area, this option is for you.

Is FTTP connectivity best suited to you?

If you have a number of users who use cloud-based applications to upload and download data on a daily basis, but don’t transfer large amounts of data, FTTP might be your best option.

Is Gfast connectivity best suited to you?

If your line cannot support a minimum of 100Mbps, this connection is not for you. Gfast must meet the speed as a minimum. 

If your line meets this need, and you’re looking for an ultrafast, consistent and reliable connection without the hassle and upheaval of construction work – this could be a good fit.

It’s worth noting that Gfast is a stop gap to FTTP, and is not a technology that is likely to be around for a long time.

Is FTTC connectivity best suited to you?

If you need more bandwidth but don’t really need a guaranteed speed, FTTC could be for you. It is widely available throughout the UK, making it suitable as a main connection. As this connection provides higher speeds than ADSL, it is also a good option for a back up to a leased line.

As with ADSL, once the PSTN is turned off in 2025/26, FTTC will become virtually obsolete and at the very least you will require FTTP to remain connected.

Is DSL connectivity best suited to you?

DSL connections offer very limited bandwidth so it might be right for you if you typically use the internet for less data-intensive tasks. If you’re sending emails, browsing the web, downloading very small files and working with small amounts of data – you should be fine with DSL.

It is worth noting connections based on copper wire, like DSL, will be switched off in the UK by Openreach, with a phased approach due to begin at the end of 2025. If you don’t have a fibre connection at the moment, you’ll need to upgrade this as well as move to a VoIP telephone system.
