Security in Higher Education: A Model for the Modern Institution

10/09/17

Institutions of higher learning are responsible for providing a secure environment for their students, faculty and administrators to work and study. To protect personal information, intellectual property and other sensitive data from breach, universities must find a way to secure applications and data across an increasingly complex array of devices, applications, network connections and usage scenarios. At the same time, the institution must meet the demands of users for a simple, high-quality experience on any device they choose to use, including personal laptops, smartphones and tablets, wherever they work. The cost of failure can be high, from reputational damage, to regulatory fines, to the loss or compromise of valuable research. Layering point solutions onto an aging infrastructure only adds complexity without building strategically robust security. As the threat of malware, hacking and other attacks continues to rise, the need for a more comprehensive and effective approach is becoming urgent.
