Walton County Public Schools
Date : 9/1/2013
The Dell SonicWALL SuperMassive will easily support our district’s 5,000 devices connecting to it and surfing the internet at the same time, which was important to us. It doesn’t even break a sweat.

ChallengeLike most large school districts, Walton County Public Schools depends on reliable internet connectivity and protection of its data. A slow firewall caused the organization’s internet connection to fail regularly, so the IT team sought a faster, more high-performing network security solution.
SolutionBy combining Dell™ SonicWALL™ SuperMassive™ firewalls with AppAssure™, Walton County Public Schools gained deeper network security, multi-gigabit speeds and robust backup and recovery. Dell’s next-generation firewalls (NGFW) also help staff and students to stay connected and informed.
Benefits• Increased internet speed tenfold
• Successfully rolled out 4,000 iPads for students
• Firewall changes can be executed in 30 seconds, versus 15 minutes
• Achieved reliable connectivity for students, teachers and staff
