Case Study: Town of Brookline

Securing an ever-expanding network

With the recent introduction of BYOD and IoT devices, Town of Brookline’s network expanded rapidly. The town turned to Cisco Security to regain the visibility, control, and performance it needs to serve its 60,000 residents around the clock.



  • Need to protect thousands of students and citizens with minimal staff
  • Dramatic increase in IoT and BYOD access
  • Inability to monitor encrypted traffic without performance degradation


  • Reduced infected machines by 70 percent
  • Blocked 37 million pieces of malware in one year
  • Vastly improved security with fewer resource requirements

What they’re saying

Cisco security is giving us network visibility we never had before.

Zeray Assefa, Director of Network Operations, Town of Brookline
