The Derby College Group


Derby College Group is one of the largest colleges in the United Kingdom, catering to thousands of students in supporting them towards their career goals. The college is continuously innovating and extending its course list to help offer a variety of classes for school leavers and adult learners.

Derby College Group needed to provide an anytime, anywhere service for students on campus or for those working remotely. As more students and staff accessed the services from different locations, Derby College’s IT infrastructure reached a breaking point. Fortinet’s solution provided port of entry for its internet connection, allowing them to use Web Filtering, ISP, and Application Control.
