Case Study: Shawnee Heights Unified School District

Keeping students safe with Cisco security solutions on iOS

Shawnee Heights chose Apple and Cisco Security Connector for iOS to keep students safe from cyber attacks and from connecting to malicious websites. Although iOS is safe and secure, the Internet is not. With this in mind, Shawnee Heights turned to Cisco Security to gain needed control and visibility into internet traffic for the fleet of 3,500 school-issued iPads.

Overview

Challenges

  • Significant increase in security threats each day, including malware, phishing, crypto-mining botnets
  • No real-time protection for 65% of school-issued iPads leaving the secured network daily
  • Protect and filter iOS devices offsite, while enabling students to connect to networks when they leave school

Solution

  • Cisco Security Connector for iOS, optimized for iOS, combining Cisco Umbrella and Cisco AMP for Endpoints
  • Apple iOS 12

Results

  • Students have safe, easy access to online school content using their iPads
  • School district is confident that students are protected from cyber attacks
  • Cisco security software blocked 23,000 suspect Internet requests in one 30-day period

What they're saying

"Cisco Security Connector has been one of the best purchases we have made. It gives me peace of mind knowing that our staff, students, and devices are protected."

- Blair Anderson, IT Director, Shawnee Heights
