  • Upgrade of Small Elementary School’s Technology
  • At Start• Wired network consisting of several switches• No border protection• 1 windows server 2000 non AD enabled• 50-60 windows 98, Millennium, and XP clients• Workgroup network design• No backup solution• No antivirus solution• No filtering solution• Low budgetary allowance
  • Considerations• Budgetary constraints allow best case scenarios as opposed to ideal scenarios• Technology upgrade• Ease of administration• Regulatory Compliance
  • Goals• Implement wireless network• Border protection• Implement centralized server solution• Upgrade existing client technology• Implement cost effective backup solution• Implement antivirus solution• Implement filtering solution
  • Implement Wireless Network• Devices should be able to roam seamlessly across campus• Site survey• Implementation and testing• Result: Freedom of movement
  • Border Protection• Port blocking implemented on border device• Administrator trained in use and concepts• Result: Attack surface reduced
  • Centralized Server Solution• Select appropriate hardware and install• Train administrator on active directory concepts, user management, policy use and proper OU structure• Design an effective OU structure, user management polices and other aspects that fit the clients needs and help alleviate future difficulties when the time for change comes
  • Centralized Server Solution 2• Install active directory and related services• Implement file server role• Implement user management• Implement print server role• Centralize user file management• Implement access control policies concerning centralized user data
  • Centralized Server Solution 3• Result: Almost all user created data stored in a centralized solution due to polices directing user storage• Result: Users are now managed centrally• Result: User access to data now under the control of the Administrator in a centralized location, access control allows protection plus oversight of data• Result: Users now have ability to print from any location on campus to any location on campus• Result: Administrator now has control over the vast array of policies active directory offers
  • Upgrade Existing Client Technology• Replace all older hardware and software with newer replacements allowing implementation of active directory policies• Result: New technology equals more productivity
  • Implement Antivirus Solution• Deploy server, and arrange policies for Symantec Endpoint protection• Train administrator in use of Symantec Endpoint protection• Result: Vast improvement in potential for security across the board
  • Implement Filtering• Implement free proxy server software DansGuardian• Implement squid proxy software• Implement via active directory policies enforced use of proxy• Result: Administrative control over internet content accessed by users
