Untangle for Higher Education

Balancing Security with Controlled Access

College students are bringing more connected devices on campus than ever before, using them to access more web-based applications and high-definition content every day. Their mobile, digital lifestyle has led to unpredictable spikes in network traffic that can bring school networks to a crawl at any given time. Attempts to solve the problem with expensive bandwidth upgrades have only led to increased bandwidth usage by students.

To get insatiable bandwidth usage under control, Untangle enables network administrators to prioritize access to online school systems and educational content, while controlling the delivery of entertainment and recreational content—some of which can not only introduce liability from illegal downloads, but also carry malware payloads. Students, staff and guests are protected from online threats, ensuring a secure and reliable internet connection for all users campus-wide.

We now rely on Untangle’s NG Firewall to share bandwidth, restrict certain applications like file sharing, and provide access management and security by linking with our LDAP server.
