The time has changed
Traditional security in schools was not created to protect mobile users enabled for the cloud. Today’s schools and colleges are highly connected environments, with students and staff using their laptops, tablets and smartphones to access institutional data anywhere, both on and off campus. As a result, users are more likely to become infected with malware because they connect directly to the Internet, creating gaps in visibility and coverage. Students and teachers have the flexibility to automatically install and enable applications, or access, create and share information with anyone, anywhere. That means that schools and universities around the world face an increased risk of sensitive data being exposed inadvertently or maliciously.
Applications, data and identities are moving to the cloud very quickly to take advantage of cost savings, scalability and accessibility. For schools, adopting SaaS applications gives students and faculty more control over the applications they use and the information they share on and off campus. With SaaS, applications and sensitive data are no longer restricted behind a firewall, and your staff does not need to use the VPN to do their job. As more schools and distributed learning environments depend on the cloud, direct access to the Internet is favored instead of directing traffic through the campus network.
