Universities and colleges face tight IT budgets and steep technology demands — all without sacrificing application performance and security.

Higher-education environments have the requirements of large enterprises with specialized needs for device proliferation, IP address management, student privacy and security compliance mandates from funded research programs.

A10 empowers educational organizations with infrastructures that are fast, secure, resilient to DDoS attacks and reliably overcome IPv4 exhaustion limitations.

Universities, research centers and schools of higher learning share the same application delivery, networking and security challenges as global enterprises. But they also have the burden of managing mobile device IPs of the entire study body accessing the internet and interactive learning services — often concurrently. In scenario diagrammed above, a university uses global server load balancing (GSLB) and carrier-grade network address translation (CGNAT) to securely connect services, devices and applications to on-campus students and faculty, as well as across remote locations.  For additional security, SSL inspection and URL filtering mitigate threats in encrypted traffic, and DDoS protection defends infrastructure from advanced cyber attacks. An integrated application delivery controller (ADC) layers additional security controls, including SSL offload, WAF and DAF capabilities.

CHOOSE A10

I could pay over twice as much for a competitive solution and I’m very glad that I didn’t. I’ve found that the A10 solution does all that our previous system did — and more.
