macmon for Education and Research

Protected Network Access and Secure Cloud Usage in the Education Sector

Every industry has its specific characteristics and requirements. However, it is in the field of education that the most diverse requirements arise due to homeschooling, blended learning in divided classes, lessons with hygiene rules and digital teaching scenarios. As a result, schools, universities and other educational institutions need an open network architecture that must be fail-safe and highly available due to the large number of users.

On the one hand, free Internet access is required for smartphones, tablets, game consoles and PCs. On the other, laptops in certain buildings and areas should have direct and secure access to the internal network of the school or university. However, since the Corona pandemic, students and faculty must also have access to online learning platforms, homeschooling applications and video conferencing tools. In addition, students who swap devices, reset them, and use them everywhere are often less careful about the passwords they set than they are with their devices.
