Peirce College Implements Palo Alto Networks Firewall

Peirce College in Philadelphia has upgraded its firewall infrastructure to the Palo Alto Networks PA-4000 Series firewall to gain visibility and control of Internet applications and threats on its campus networks.

"In order to keep up with the dynamically changing Internet application and threat landscape, we replaced our older generation firewalls with the PA-4000 Series," said Christopher Duffy, CIO. "Since then, we can monitor users at a level not possible before, and set and enforce more effective policies, which help protect our users and networks."

Other schools that have recently gone public with PA-4000 deployments include San Jose State University in California and Sinclair Community College in Dayton, OH.

Peirce College is a private institution providing degree programs primarily to working adults. As of 2005, it had about 2,000 students.
