Ensuring Network Security for a Distributed Campus

Ensuring Network Security for a Distributed Campus

Like many colleges and universities, UT Austin depends heavily on its wired and wireless networks to enhance the educational experience and quality of life for students, faculty and staff. The 350-acre campus includes nearly 200 buildings linked by a 10 gigabit fiber optic backbone. Up to 120,000 individual devices may be connected to the network at any time, including servers, switches, wireless access points, desktops, laptops, tablets, smart phones, security cameras and other systems. Previously, the ISO analysts relied primarily on intrusion detection/prevention system (IDS/IPS) appliances and custom-developed software tools to monitor network activity.
