East Stroudsburg Area School District

Pennsylvanian School District Improves Network Visibility and Control Through the Fortinet Security Fabric

“Security alerts happen all the time, and in order for me to do anything else with my day, I need to have information at my fingertips. Fortinet’s solutions provide me with just that.”

– David Cooper, Network Analyst, East Stroudsburg Area School District


A decade ago, network security at East Stroudsburg Area School District revolved mainly around intrusion detection and network access control. Nowadays, the small IT team at the northeast Pennsylvania school district contends with a whole host of rapidly evolving concerns. These include ransomware, denial-of-service attacks, and zero-day threats.

Building on its initial Fortinet Security Fabric footprint, the District added endpoint detection and response (EDR) for 1,500 staff endpoints and lab computers. It bolstered that with security information and event management (SIEM) capabilities. This expanded Security Fabric has helped the IT team detect known and new threats immediately and stop them at the source. It has also improved visibility across the network, so the team can identify suspicious activity that may become a cyberthreat. All this new capability has not overwhelmed the team, though, thanks to AI-driven automation throughout the Security Fabric.

Learn how the East Stroudsburg Area School District is making the most of its long-term partnership with Fortinet in this case study.
