Education relies on IT security at the network level

The protection of intellectual property and compliance with legal regulations is essential.

Educational institutions are likewise on the way to digitalization, as it brings many advantages, especially for teaching and knowledge acquisition. The networking of different campus locations makes knowledge transfer easier. However, free WLAN access in educational institutions such as universities, universities of applied sciences or libraries also transforms access to information and knowledge. In addition, more and more students, lecturers and administrators are bringing their own mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets to campus. This forces educational institutions to look at network security, identify potential risks and find appropriate solutions to protect sensitive data

Your Challanges

Because educational institutions are particularly vulnerable to security threats due to their open network architectures and the sheer number of users, access and transfer of data on the network needs special protection. Mobile access to information from private mobile devices must remain verifiable and secured by appropriate encryption technologies such as VPN. In addition, legal regulations, e.g. for the protection of user data, must be consistently observed.

Benefits of our solutions

  • Protect PCs and therefore your network from external attacks such as ransomware or zero-day exploits by implementing a secure browser strategy.
  • Encrypt the data traffic, especially of large amounts of data, between different locations of the respective educational institution. To protect intellectual property and personal user data.
  • Ensure that your data-at-rest, i.e. the data on servers and in clouds, is protected against both external and unauthorized access by internal persons.
  • Use next-generation firewalls to prevent external, unauthorized access to the network, which can also analyze data fine-meshed with a DPI engine.
