Southern Hancock County Community Schools & Cybersecurity


The district sought to discover an endpoint solution comparable to what the corporation was currently using.

Southern Hancock needed to implement a powerful solution that also met budgetary constraints.

The solution needed to provide protection from ransomware.


Southern Hancock looked to Five Star for guidance and worked with our team to discuss potential solutions.

After analyzing the challenges, school admins and the Five Star team agreed the strongest solution was to implement Sophos Intercept-X with MTR.

Five Star Technology Solutions


  • The corporation saved over $40k per year moving to Sophos.
  • The solution provided protection from next-generation threats on all Windows desktop endpoints and Windows servers.


Vulnerabilities and threats arise daily. Southern Hancock tasked Five Star with providing affordable and comprehensive solutions to meet their cybersecurity needs.

Hear from the admin at Southern Hancock

“Sophos has been a great asset to our school district. Five Star suggested Sophos as an option to save money while maintaining a high level of protection and security for our systems. Five Star's commitment to cybersecurity has kept our systems running smoothly, efficiently, and safely.”
