Securing the school network amidst escalating threats

Security threats are now a routine problem for increasingly connected education institutions. The good news is that a new generation of technology solutions can deliver the levels of visibility, interoperability, and automation needed to help schools combat security threats.

This video series investigates how education institutions can improve their cyber security strategy and better protect themselves against internal and external threats.

Security controls vs the learning experience

Balancing security with a seamless user experience is a tightrope walk for any organisation. David Wain, Data#3’s National Practice Manager for Education, and Richard Dornhart, Data#3’s National Practice Manager for Security discuss the unique challenges schools face to achieve the right balance of usability vs security.

How The Southport School balances security and learning

Schools must protect sensitive student data while ensuring a seamless classroom experience – and do it all with limited budgets. In this video, we explore the value of strong authentication and identity-based access control through the eyes of a customer who has achieved the level of security necessary to protect their network from insider and outsider threats.


Learn more about how The Southport Schools’ investments in wireless networking and security paid off when we revisit them after four years in this customer story.

Utilising automation to create a secure network

This video discusses why it’s vital for security tools to interoperate. From allowing schools to leverage legacy infrastructure or selecting the best solution for the job; to providing that critical level of visibility and paving the way for the efficiency benefits of network automation. Learn why you cannot overlook the value of interoperability, with our special guests from Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company.
