The Costs and Risks of Legacy Networking
Online learning and digital devices ensure students at all levels can complete coursework anywhere, at any time. But that also expands the digital endpoints cybercriminals can exploit.
Education institutions are continually defending against a variety of cyberattacks that have the potential to hamper operations and put staff and student data — personal and financial — at risk.
The list of threats is long — student tablets and laptops, security sensors, even building thermometers — each representing a potential breach opportunity that can’t be mitigated with traditional network strategies.
Network Security Challenges for Educational Institutions
Ensuring security for online learning applications and mobile devices used over public networks.
Protecting remote access for a growing array of SaaS applications.
Enabling and maintaining secure access to student, staff, research, and institutional data.
Managing traditional networking hardware that can be resource-intensive, complex, and costly.
Providing point-to-point connections while maintaining scalability and flexibility.
