Defending a complex network environment with over 7,000 mobile and BYOD devices requires AI capabilities for real-time visibility.
The United World College of South East Asia (UWCSEA) has two campuses in Singapore, with over 5,500 students and 1,000 staff, and is one of the most well-respected schools in the APAC region.
Each one of its students owns a personal device connected to the school’s network and is encouraged to use phones, computers and tablets for educational purposes. With over 200 applications and several thousand devices in the hands of students, UWCSEA’s vast network was exposed to risk at any point.
In the face of a rapidly-evolving threat landscape, with largescale attacks that exploit IoT vulnerabilities, UWCSEA needed real-time visibility of all the devices on its network. Compounding these challenges, as a non-profit institution, UWCSEA has limited resources. Its lean security team found it virtually impossible to sift through thousands of logs and attempt to spot threatening anomalies.
Knowing that a breach of its sensitive student and parent data could cause significant reputational damage, UWCSEA was determined to use the most innovative tools on the market to defend its network.
