Bradford Networks and Essex Agricultural & Technical High School Webcast Examines Network Security and the BYOC Model

Webcast Offers Best Practices for Implementing Network Access Control to Securely Enable Student- and Faculty-Owned Devices Onto the Network

CONCORD, NH--(Marketwire - Apr 25, 2011) - Bradford Networks, the best choice for network security in evolving IT environments, today announced the details of an upcoming webinar with Essex Agricultural & Technical High School (Essex Aggie) that will outline its implementation of a BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) model. The session, titled, "BYOC: How School Securely Opened its Network to Student- and Faculty-Owned Devices" will discuss how Essex Aggie deployed a Network Access Control (NAC) solution to provide students, faculty and guests with secure and compliant access to its wired and wireless networks.

Frank Andrus, CTO and co-founder, Bradford Networks

Educational institutions are especially burdened with the pressure to open their networks to student-and faculty-owned devices, but have been hesitant to do so because the security risks far outweighed the benefits. This balance, however, is shifting and with technology now playing a key role in the learning process, these institutions are now allowing non-school owned assets access to their networks.

In this webinar, Kyle Jones and Frank Andrus will describe how Essex Aggie took a phased approach to implementing a NAC solution to provide the school with complete visibility and control over the users and devices on the network. This webinar will also address the following topics:

  • Lessons from the front lines exploring how Essex Aggie implemented a BYOC model
  • How Essex Aggie moved from a manual device inspection process to a NAC solution offering automatic discovery, profiling, scanning, remediation and provisioning
  • The process Essex Aggie followed to develop network access procedures to help ensure network usage was focused on learning enablement

Wednesday, April 27, 2011 from 12:00 - 1:00pm EDT
