  2. 2. Defending and Safeguarding School and Campus Networks,Databases, and Privacy with Real-time Threat ManagementChallenge for IT in Today’s Educational InstitutionsThe networking system at educational institutions presents a unique and constant challengebecause of the large computing environment and evolving new users that appear each yearrequiring access. A typical higher education institution is comprised of various departments witha long list of faculty members and staff members, a large number of transient students, andnumerous servers, databases, computing devices, university-owned websites, distance-learningweb technologies, web applications, and WLAN network devices. Educational institutions overallhave become a lucrative target for both malicious hackers and insider thieves alike because ofthe wealth of personally identifiable information (PII) and intellectual property data stored oncampus servers and network databases. Most educational institutions’ administrativedepartments, healthcare systems, research centers, and financial services are accessiblethrough a campus network. As a result, the abundance of sensitive data is vulnerable to securitythreats that can compromise confidential records and expose the university to security risks,leading to the loss of both crucial information and privacy for student bodies, faculty, and staffmembers.5 Security Focus Points1. High-risk security breaches including malware threats are a common occurrence.2. Due to the highly decentralized systems within educational institutions, a scalable network security solution is needed to ensure consistent security across all network as well as protect sensitive information and intellectual property from both external and internal threats.3. IT departments are experiencing mounting pressures to improve operational efficiency, secure networks, meet compliance mandates, and reduce security overhead cost. How to do more with less?4. Situational Awareness is needed to increase visibility among all networks, identify and investigate anomalous behaviors, and mitigate security risks.5. Educational institutions often have minimal budgets to allocate for network security.Did you know that higher educations have lost control of more than 22 million files of sensitiveinformation that includes birth dates, social security numbers, identification numbers, as well asother personal, financial, employment, medical, professional, and confidential researchinformation?
