Educational institutions face a myriad of IT challenges and typically must solve them with limited budgets. With ever-increasing bring your own devices (BYOD) by students, faculty, and administrators, educational organizations need to scale bandwidth and provide secure access. Sensitive information must be secured and compliance standards protecting students, such as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), must be met. While it’s key for educational institutions to have the latest security and networking technologies, limited budgets can make it seem impossible to purchase and then find the resources to manage them.
