End-to-End Security in Education

Learning environments go digital

Whether they are completing a math test online, giving a science presentation, or virtually attending a field trip, students of all ages are always connected. And while they are preoccupied with completing online school assignments and streaming educational videos, IT teams at primary, secondary, and higher education institutions are hard at work designing and maintaining networks that make this all possible.

As educational institutions start to integrate digital technology into many aspects of learning, network demands exponentially increase. Students are bringing more devices to school and using them to write essays, prepare

presentations, conduct research, and take tests, and they expect reliable Internet access to do so. Smart boards, online lectures, real-time productivity applications, video platforms, 1:1 device programs, smart speakers — all of these technologies have enabled instructors to personalize lessons, standardize test taking, and increase collaboration between students.
