Annie Wright Schools

Annie Wright Schools proudly maintain Harry Potter-like traditions dating back over 100 years, but network latency, access, and an inability to support BYOD are modern IT problems that can’t be solved with magic. Because the school has boarding students, large amounts of bandwidth are needed at all times for educational, communication, and entertainment purposes. When the school’s incumbent legacy firewall could no longer handle throughput or support the evolving needs of users, and IT management became overwhelming, it needed a new modern solution.
