Mill Hill School selects next-generation firewalls from Palo Alto Networks

The independent school said IT makes up a significant part of the curriculum and it feels a duty to encourage the use of a broad range of web applications, some of which have become an integral part of its students' lives. Adam Banks, network manager at Mill Hill School, said: With 1,000 users, including day-pupils and boarders, it became clear to us that we needed a way of gaining greater visibility of what was being accessed as well as greater control over the specific applications that our pupils were using. It was also important that we had a complete all-in-one solution that was easy to use and manage. We can now provide a highly accommodating service to our pupils, safe in the knowledge that we're not exposed to any security threats. Following advice from IT services and security integration firm Synetix Solutions, Mill Hill deployed Palo Alto Networks' PA-500 Series firewalls. These provide visibility and policy control of more than 1,300 applications running on enterprise networks. Palo Alto Networks' App-ID technology identifies applications regardless of port, protocol, evasive tactic or even SSL encryption, all at up to 20Gbps with no performance degradation. Rene Bonvanie, vice-president of worldwide marketing at Palo Alto Networks, said: We have had tremendous success in the education sector precisely because we enable organisations to effectively balance the need for both access and security. Unlike legacy security technologies, our next-generation firewalls are unique in their ability to see and control applications, users and content not just ports, IP addresses and packets.
