Many of today's educational institutions find themselves vulnerable to security breaches that may compromise confidential information and expose the university to losses and other risks. Malware, phishing, infrastructure attacks, social network targeting, and peer-to-peer (P2P) information leakage are not potential threats; they’re actual, daily issues.

Furthermore, the type of computer architecture that they have, the open-endedness of it all and the number of individuals who use these institutions servers, contributes to a level of access that skilled hackers can use to their advantage.

Faced with these challenges, many IT administrators in the education sector are turning to Palo Alto Networks - as opposed to their legacy port-based firewalls - to stop threats and provide application visibility and control on their campus networks.

Please join Palo Alto Networks for an informative webinar and demo. As part of our discussion panel, Eric Smith - Assistant Director of Information Security and Networking at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania - will discuss how Bucknell University has leveraged Palo Alto Networks' game-changing Next Generation Firewall technology to better align information security policies with business priorities, while much more effectively managing risk.

About Eric Smith:

Eric Smith has over 15 years of field experience in information security, networking, and systems administration. Eric is a founding member of PreSet Kill Limit, the security research group which has won the Defcon Wardriving Contest several years in a row.  He is currently obsessed with iOS security and
privacy issues.
