As many of you are a member of an EDU IT department, I am sure you would agree that improved security, better visibility / control, and cost reduction are common themes within the education sector. In addition, there is also the added pressure of budget cuts, more demands being placed on the school network and IT staff, as well as having dynamic and tech-savvy users. Unfortunately, traditional port-based firewalls are no match for the double whammy of university users and next-generation applications – which are both good at circumventing IT controls. 

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 us for an informative town hall webinar on March 14th, 2012. The webinar will feature a guest panel of your peers from Penn State University and Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13 as part of our Q&A session. We will discuss how the education market 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. We will review specific third-party case studies and customer success stories, in addition to a Palo Alto Networks Next Generation Firewall demonstration. At the conclusion of the webinar, one lucky attendee will win a Kindle Fire.

Specific Discussion Topics Include:

•          Why port-based firewalls, IDS/IPS, proxies, URL filtering, DLP, etc. are no longer sufficient to protect against today's application-specific attacks.

•          Evolving from port/IP address based security policies to application and AD user/group based policies.

•          Blending positive and negative enforcement models to better align IT security policies with business priorities.

•          Learn how to save money by consolidating network infrastructure, while more thoroughly blocking malware, viruses and spyware, and prioritizing E-learning and business applications on your network.
