Arts University Bournemouth

The Art of Secure Connectivity

“We needed an easy-to-manage solution with strong monitoring and reporting capabilities. This is exactly what we found from the Fortinet’s products”

– Stephen Harvey, Head of Digital Services, Arts University Bournemouth


Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) offers courses in art, design, media and performance, priding itself on exploring the boundaries of artistic expression. The university has many exciting plans for its future, as well as an on-going commitment to making its campus a hub of creativity.

With over 3,600 Students and 600 Staff based at a single campus in Poole, Dorset, AUB was facing some very modern challenges around its IT infrastructure. It needed a reliable and secure infrastructure and connectivity to support its various operations, and also had to be equipped to deal with several unique issues around security, including web filtering and counter-terrorism reporting.

Fortinet’s FortiGate next generation firewall provides easy to manage technology, that has the ability to support AUB’s specific security requirements – from counter-terrorism measures to bespoke web filtering functionality and large file uploads. Best of all, AUB will be prepared for any future risks thanks to the zero-day malware protection to guard against new threats.
