SONICWALL USE CASE SCENARIO for K-12

A typical K-12 network might deploy a SonicWall Nssp firewall at the district, plus NSa or TZ firewalls at schools, each securely connected via site-to-site VPN. Content Filtering Service aids in CIPA compliance. Use a TZ300P or TZ600P firewall to connect PoE-enabled devices without a PoE switch, including wireless access points, IP phones, cameras and more. SonicWave access points can be untethered from the firewall and managed via cloud.

Cloud App Security protects productivity platforms such as G Suite in the cloud. Capture Security Center adds single-pane-of-glass governance of security, networking, cloud apps, and wireless operations and policies.
