Forti-K-12 Focus: Selling the Fortinet stack into education and beyond
August 25th, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm AEST
Digital innovation technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and Chromebook devices are rapidly being adopted by K-12 school districts to enrich student learning experiences. When implementing these technologies, there is a requirement for high quality and efficient network security. This is because cyberattackers are becoming more innovative and are compromising the personal and financial data stored by schools. Network security is further threatened due to common issues such as unknown mobile devices accessing the network, ageing networks, and lack of awareness of cyberthreats among students and staff.
Fortinet’s Security Fabric provides easy-to-manage, affordable, and automated security protection. It supports digital learning infrastructure, student online safety and compliance, and distributed districts. With architecture built according to the needs of public and private schools, Fortinet is the K-12 security partner providing a complete end-to-end safeguard that keeps students safe.
