Higher ed balances federal funding requirements, institutional needs

U. of Maryland switches VPN service

Following a beta testing period this summer, the University of Maryland has announced plans this October to replace its current virtual private network service with an offering from Palo Alto Networks. The new service, which will be available for students and instructors to test this summer and early fall, is set to replace the university’s existing Cisco AnyConnect VPN service. As within other organizations, the VPN is designed to provide a more secure connection to the university’s network when users are at home or on public networks. Emily has the story.

Organizations are overhauling massive systems and rethinking business processes left untouched for decades. Check out the entire special report.
