Educational institutions are evolving rapidly –

  • Meeting the needs of diverse student and faculty populations with diverse device, application and information needs.
  • Hosting and providing access to more digital data, by more constituents (faculty, staff, parents, teachers, alumni, students), in more locations than ever.
  • Acting as service providers in a way not previously thought possible
  • Managing, and thus needing to secure, larger data centers than large commercial institutions.
  • Feeling the brand impact of lower quality service by very vocal constituents.

Security plays a more critical role in these networks than ever.  Providing educational institutions with the ability to secure their assets – academic research, student, faculty, and alumni personal data, and other sensitive information – with the greatest flexibility and least impediment to the service levels their constituents demand is why more educational institutions entrust us with their security every day.
