From resource allocations and automation to integrating and centralizing IT, there are many challenges for campus IT to tackle. In this whitepaper, we’ll discuss how schools, colleges, and universities are modernizing their IT tools and processes.


How Artificial Intelligence Can Troubleshoot Your Wi-Fi for You

That can place a tremendous strain on IT. Nearly 60 percent of higher ed network administrators are spending at least a quarter of their time troubleshooting Wi-Fi. Download this informative white paper to learn how, thanks to self-aware networks, a great deal of those troubleshooting tasks can now be automated with artificial intelligence in the cloud.


IT For Education: Priorities, Challenges, and Automation Secrets

The Rise of the Secure Internet Gateway

The IT landscape has evolved. Critical infrastructure, applications, and data are moving to the cloud, leveraging either public or private cloud infrastructure.
