Case Study: Shawnee Mission School District

Making a secure digital learning environment

How do you securely implement a new digital learning initiative that requires providing over 27,500 students and teachers with mobile devices? SMSD leveraged Cisco Security and Collaboration Enterprise License Agreements (ELA) to efficiently and cost-effectively deliver the technologies they needed.

Summary

Challenges

  • Securely implement digital initiative to provide mobile devices for students and teachers
  • Integrate a fragmented infrastructure that hindered progress and posed a security risk
  • Need to reduce complexity and simplify management for the IT team

Results

  • Decreased the number of malware incidents from three per day to one per month
  • Improved productivity and collaboration among students and teachers

What they're saying

"Security is no longer a second consideration for us… it’s an assumed part of everything we do. This ELA is an integrated set of tools that allows my existing team to meet our larger mission: transformed digital learning."
