Kent ISD

Education Services Agency Improves Protection for 20 School Districts With FortiGate NGFWs and FortiAnalyzer

“FortiGate is definitely my firewall of choice. The ease of use and management made it very easy to decide to continue to move forward with Fortinet and Vector.”

– Chris Lillis, Senior Security Engineer, Information & Technology Systems Kent ISD


Kent Intermediate School District (Kent ISD) is a local education service agency that supports more than 280 schools across 20 districts. The agency needed robust network security to protect its internet access service and hosted applications. But it was frustrated with the performance of its previous firewalls. So, Kent ISD turned to Fortinet Partner Vector Tech Group, which offered a comprehensive yet easy-to-manage solution based on FortiGate next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) and FortiAnalyzer analytics and automation. Vector’s staff are certified Fortinet Network Security Experts (NSEs), providing Kent ISD with an additional source of assistance, if needed.
