Chilliwack School District

Located in British Columbia, Canada, the School District of Chilliwack is a learning community of over 13,000 students, served by 2,300 teachers and support staff. The district’s diverse programs include 37 elementary, middle and secondary neighborhood schools as well as alternate and distance learning programs. “Before Palo Alto Networks we’d block certain ports and students would find ways around it. Matching a user name and IP address with Active Directory is so helpful. Palo Alto Networks firewalls are multi-faceted application-based firewalls that effectively control applications."
