Mobile devices are flourishing on campuses and in K–12 school districts. But how do you ensure that your network is protected while keeping it versatile enough for devices to function in an educational environment?
EdTech is hosting a webinar on Sept. 25 that will serve as a forum for reviewing best practices for mobile device management. Leading the discussion: Jason Arellano, user services manager at St. Edward's University; Crystal Montvid, solution architect at CDW•G, and Chad Stevens, K–12 strategist at CDW•G.
Effective MDM has become a vital component of networks at higher education institutions and K–12 schools. More than 70 percent of college students carry smartphones, and tablets are expected to be the largest bandwidth consumers on campuses in 2014.
With bring-your-own-device programs growing at K–12 schools, it's becoming standard practice for networks to support all manner of devices.
In a CDW•G survey of 175 K–12 IT professionals, 90 percent said supporting multiple platforms was a top priority for their districts. Accomplishing that feat requires a flexible network with tight security that protects wireless users.
These are just some of the challenges faced by IT professionals at today’s schools. Don't miss out on this free opportunity to learn tips and guidance that will give you an edge in this growing field. Register for the webinar today.
