WatchGuard gets an A+ from Andover

See how Andover Regional School District got out from under their Internet security and access limitations with WatchGuard unified threat management solutions. With 300 computers across two school campuses and the business offices, bandwidth was being stretched especially with video and audio streams. And students were circumventing the previous web security measures. WatchGuard addressed not only the bandwidth concerns, but needs surrounding bandwidth aggregation, gateway security and the Web browsing behavior of the students. The WatchGuard WebBlocker service lets administrators disallow categories of sites that are obvious concerns, plus individual sites that without educational purpose. Says the School Business Administrator: “I would have graded our old product at a D, and we’re in the A+ range with WatchGuard.”
