Video Highlights

  • Users — 10,000 students and 3,000 faculty — on Arkansas State’s campus have two or three network connected devices each.
  • Their frontline defense is a Palo Alto Networks next-gen firewall that helps to segment networks and provide intrusion protection.
  • Zone-based policies allow them to filter access to resources by group or users, instead of just IP address.
  • Encryption tools keep personally identifiable information private and help share important files safely.
