MORE SECURITY. MORE SIMPLICITY. LESS COST.
Embrace the Digital Classroom with Fortinet’s Network Security Solutions for Education
Security, simplicity, and cost. Every IT Director faces these challenges for their environments. However, in education, maintaining an effective balance of these elements is critical all day, every day. Long gone are the days where students were prohibited from using their personal devices and only approved users were granted network access. Today’s digital classrooms require connectivity for almost any device. From primary to upper grade levels, students often bring more than one device with them each day. The opening of networks to accommodate the growing number of devices fosters inevitable security risks which could lead to data breaches and data leaks of sensitive student and staff personal information. Fortinet understands and appreciates the unique challenges educators face in delivering engaging, relevant, and meaningful learning opportunities to students while maintaining a high level of network security to protect data and meet compliance standards like HIPAA, CIPA, FERPA, and others.

FORTINET SOLUTIONS FOR EDUCATION
Fortinet offers a broad range of E-Rate eligible solutions to provide schools with the products necessary to take control of their networks at an unparalleled and affordable price point. To effectively and efficiently manage bandwidth, granular tools are needed to control access and shape bandwidth for BYOD or 1:1 environments. The FortiGate UTM and NGFW products offer advanced tools to manage users and applications to set the policies required for different groups (i.e., students, faculty administrators, guests/ patrons, and school board members) no matter what type of devices they’re using. Quality of Service (QoS) tools allow schools to determine the traffic types that take priority such as VoIP or testing applications over bandwidth-intensive video or music services.
