Security's an important issue in any learning environment. But at Fontys University of Applied Science in the Netherlands, IT security is particularly challenging because of the high caliber of students involved. Their challenges are to cope with growth in Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) numbers and support mobile end-points while maintaining IT security. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. They have implemented intrusion prevention system with next-generation firewall services based on advanced Cisco ASA platform. The results of implementing the Cisco were provided stable network security environment and maintained full protection since implementation.
