CLIFTON, NJ--(Marketwire - Oct 15, 2012) - Bat Blue Networks, a leading provider of cloud-based virtual perimeter services, has been selected by High Point Regional High School in Sussex, New Jersey as their exclusive provider of in-the-cloud Security-as-a-Service.
High Point Regional High School, like many school systems, was in need of enhanced security to protect their student, faculty and administration technology systems, and to set a foundation for next generation education delivery platforms such as iPads and tablets. The challenge was their dependence on technology was consistently growing and evolving, however they found the cost and administration for year-to-year hardware, support and subscription purchases un-sustainable.
After extensive research High Point Regional High School selected Bat Blue Networks' in-the-cloud Security-as-a-Service, Cloud/Sec. Cloud/Sec is a cost-effective, next-generation cloud-based security solution that is the first to replace the dozens of disparate security technologies organizations operate with a single completely managed solution. Cloud/Sec supports all sites, remote users, and even tablets and mobile devices to support the next generation of education. Bat Blue's offering delivers application security, URL filtering, anti-virus and anti-malware, as well as protection from Internet-based threats and attacks without requiring hardware, subscription and implementation costs. Cloud/Sec dynamically evolves with growing needs, utilization and emerging threats, so that it is the last security solution High Point Regional High School will have to buy.
"As a school system we are pressed from many angles; increased Internet usage, evolving threats and constantly shrinking budgets. We also wear many hats, so we can't be experts in everything," said Thane Young, Technology Coordinator. "It's nice to know someone has your back when it comes to security. Bat Blue was able to provide us with an expert and cost-effective solution that greatly enhanced our security and the support is absolutely fantastic."
"The Bat Blue team fully supports High Point Regional High School and is very committed to education," said Babak Pasdar, President and CEO of Bat Blue Networks. "Every day we see educators fighting ever increasing technology needs, evolving, complex threats and dwindling budgets. How can schools evolve to support media driven technologies? This led us to develop a solution that is an affordable and sustainable alternative to the unsustainable options available to education today."
Cloud/Sec provides a single global security policy for all locations, applications, mobile devices, cloud instances, cloud stores and users anywhere in the world, eliminating the need for up to 50 disparate point solutions. It enables IT to operationalize the perimeter and still retain total control of data and applications. Today, Bat Blue provides security to more than 150,000 users and more than 10,000 devices.
