James Cook University

“We needed not just a firewall outcome but a broader view of security and cybersecurity and protection for the organization, and one that really answered our end-to-end requirements.”

Kevin Lane, Senior Infrastructure Engineer, James Cook University


James Cook University is a large, 22,000 student institution with teaching and research capabilities spread across three main campuses – Cairns, Townsville and Singapore. The university has additional campuses in Mt Isa, Mackay, Brisbane, Thursday Island, along with several research facilities. Each location must meet the same strict security requirements and is held to the same standards across the board.

With so many locations and a need for end-to-end security, the university realized it needed a strategic partner that would help manage a complex network, give full-range visibility and offer scalable technology to support growth.  Fortinet was identified as the company that could provide this solution.
