Secure access for your growing academic environment
Today’s educational institutions face the increasingly complex task of managing a wide range of users, systems, and devices across locations, all while keeping sensitive data and intellectual property secure. Campus boundaries are expanding with the growth of online classes, remote branches, and international programs. IT professionals are on the front lines of supporting the next generation of technology users, who rely on personal laptops, smartphones, and tablets for classwork and also prefer text-based communication like chat.
With the abundance of connected devices comes a complex network of data that needs to be protected, from personal student and staff information to commercially sensitive research and intellectual property. Remote connections must be made through secure, auditable tools and credentials must be protected to keep unauthorized users from accessing your networks.
Technology is everywhere in education. Schools are making massive investments to enable students with their own laptops, netbooks, or tablets, support global campuses, and provide more eLearning options. These systems and devices run different operating systems, may be used off network, and are set up across different locations.
