Between keynotes, panels and interviews, Education Dive took time to check out what Educause 2016's close to 300 exhibitors had on display. From solutions for boosting cybersecurity to new accessibility components on familiar platforms, here are six products we saw worth noting.

EfficientIP helping campuses boost DNS security 
Recently dubbed "at the forefront of DNS security" by CIO Magazine, EfficientIP is quickly gaining prominence among vendors of DDI software. If the acronyms are a bit much, the basics are like this: The company helps institutions manage a more secure network infrastructure with products like "SOLIDserver," which offers improved data protection, additional network reliability and security, centralized management and policy-driven automated deployment.

The company also recently commissioned what it says is the largest independent survey into DNS attacks, with responses from 995 respondents. And in higher ed, it already counts institutions like SUNY, Colorado University and University of Central Florida among its clients.

Cengage's Learning Objects fully prepared for competency-based education Competency-based learning is trending big in higher ed, so it's a no-brainer that Cengage invested in an acquisition of Learning Objects last year. At this year's show, the company had its full Competency-Based Learning Platform on display. When implemented in such programs, it offers competency dashboards, personalized learning activities, extended transcripts and evidence portfolios, and design that takes self-paced programs offering modular credentials in mind. ​It can also support instructor-led or independent learning in traditional, flipped, fully-online or blended course formats.
