Today, school administrators are concerned about mobile learning initiatives, network capacity demands and security breaches. New initiatives such as Common Core online assessments and one-to-one learning programs require a robust network. Students are using devices like Chromebooks for everyday class work, and teachers are relying on the network for lesson plans and testing. As the need for a reliable network becomes more vital for the students and staff, the health and safety of the network become more critical. The demand for a more secure network is even more apparent with the recent headlines. Hackers are targeting schools to acquire student and staffs information which is increasing the concern of security breaches for many school administrators.
