Solutions for Education

Education Overview

Smart Security for School Networks and Students
Innovative technologies and expanded network bandwidth enriches the K-12 learning experience and can even bridge classrooms around the world. Yet, the tools that help students and teachers learn and collaborate can introduce vulnerabilities. The sheer diversity of network users (students, teachers, administrators, library users, and more) and school-issued and personal network-connecting devices, puts tremendous pressure on education IT departments. The widespread popularity of Web 2.0 applications, the potential for data leaks, and the emergence of cyber-bullying have intensified the need for next-generation tools that can handle today�s demanding security landscape.
