Dell SonicWALL Firewalls Help Time Warner Cable Business Class Provide Managed Security Services to School Systems
Dell today announced that Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC) is successfully leveraging Dell SonicWALL to provide managed-security services to school systems across the U.S. By running Dell network security solutions, school districts are creating stable, adaptive and reliable security environments for school systems of all sizes and freeing up school IT personnel to focus on other education-related technology initiatives that improve student experiences.
TWCBC works with Dell Security premier partner Secure Designs, Inc. (SDI) to implement its suite of Managed Security Solutions to school systems. SDI provides an affordable, easy-to-use suite of outsourced network security for micro, small and large distributed organizations. The company was recognized by Dell as the ‘Innovation Partner of the Year’ in 2014.
Security solutions offer schools peace of mind
TWCBC is offering educational organizations end-to-end security solutions that address each school’s unique policies and requirements, and deliver comprehensive security. For instance, TWCBC recently signed a managed security services agreement with a Texas school system with 28,500 students and 3,262 faculty and staff.
