The emergence of IT trends such as Web 2.0 and mobility present a challenging balancing act for K-12 school districts across the nation. While social media and “Anytime, Anywhere Learning” clearly enrich the learning experience, these developments present IT administrators with an ever-growing list of educational and administrative demands on their network. New bandwidth–hungry Web 2.0 applications and social media sites are overwhelming networks and first-generation firewalls are failing to stop the invasion of application-based threats. Clearly, K-12 IT administrators need to find a better way to manage bandwidth and security on the new application-centric network.
Join this webinar to learn from leading security experts on how to use next-generation firewalls to provide robust bandwidth management and prioritization of application traffic for VoIP, video conferencing and social media resources.
