Securing the K-12 Network

IT departments everywhere face the challenge of finding cost-effective ways to guard against increasingly sophisticated security threats to the network. Those threats are particularly difficult to parry in a K-12 network, where protection involves highly distributed networks and diverse groups of users, including students. To compound the challenge, school districts must manage networks with many different users per endpoint, ever-greater inclusion of Internet material in the classroom and at home, and constantly shrinking budgets.

To address those challenges, endpoint security and solid network management offer a powerful way to bring the K-12 network safely under control. This paper describes such a solution, and how it can be used to securely lock down the K-12 network, while reducing management costs and headaches.
