K-12 technology teams aim to enable eLearning and the digital transformation on campuses while protecting students and staff through network and physical security. Schools need surveillance solutions that integrate into the network to ensure the cameras and recording devices have dedicated network bandwidth without any degradation in performance or interruption in connectivity. Just as important, having physical security devices, such as cameras or recording devices, reside on a next-generation firewall (NGFW) would keep them safe from attacks and unknown threats.
Additionally, K-12 technology directors face specific compliance regulations designed to protect children and sensitive personal data, such as the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) or the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
