Case Study: Cyprus University of Technology

Protecting students, staff with Cisco Firepower firewalls

Protecting almost 5000 students and staff across a distributed university campus is difficult. Cyprus University of Technology chose Cisco Next-Generation Firewalls running the Firepower Threat Defense (FTD) platform to get better visibility into malicious behavior on their network and stop threats in their tracks.

Summary

Challenges

  • Monitoring so many people and devices distributed across 40 university buildings.
  • No next-generation features like advanced malware protection and intrusion prevention.
  • No centralized management console.
  • Lack of deep network visibility.

Results

  • Consolidated the number of security products used, saving time and resources.
  • Centralized firewall management, making firewall administration and operations easier.
  • Full visibility into network activity.
  • Faster response times.
  • Improved ease of segmentation and policy management.

What they're saying

"With Cisco Firewall and Cisco Security, we can secure our network and be sure that students, staff, and visitors are safe so we can focus on what matters here: education."

Andreas Mouskos, Network Security Engineer, Cyprus University of Technology
