Temple University was founded in 1884 and is a R1 research institution with over 39,000 students. On a normal day Temple University has over 75,000 devices connected to their network. As a higher-ed institution, Temple needs to operate using an open network environment while protecting and securing their student’s data and research information. Temple University moved from their existing solution to the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform. A Palo Alto Networks Service Account Manager worked directly with the Temple team to ensure that the implementation went quick and smooth without any issues. Since implementing the Palo Alto Networks platform, Temple has experienced better stability and have been able to focus on securing their network versus continually maintaining their firewalls.
