Providing Next-Generation Security for Students and Faculty
The Department of Education in Western Australia is the education authority for approximately 40,000 teaching staff and more than 280,000 students. Their challenges are to centrally manage 798 school sites over 2.5 million km2 area, help improve Internet availability and easily facilitate BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) for students and staff. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. They have implemented eight Cisco ASA 5585-X series next-generation firewalls. The results of implementing Cisco were improved availability and reliability, improved performance and increased end user satisfaction.
