AG Series secure access gateway delivers unmatched support and flexibility for Norwich University’s heavy workloads and ever-changing user access requirements
MILPITAS, CA – May 29, 2013 – Array Networks Inc., a global leader in application delivery networking, today announced that Norwich University has deployed Array’s AG Series secure access gateway in the university’s Center for Advanced Computing and Digital Forensics (NUCAC-DF). NUCAC-DF is a top cyber-forensics academic program in the United States with over 350 students and faculty accessing computer-aided design (CAD) and architectural systems assignments and other educational tools from both the campus and remote locations internationally.
Array’s AG Series secure access gateway provides the university with a secure, remote access platform that meets the demands of the university’s changing environment and provides reliable support that handles the heavy workloads Norwich’s previous VPN solutions did not support. Array’s combination of ease of use and high performance caters to the university’s user base with computer skills ranging from beginner to power user, regardless of location or mobile device. The ease of use requires little IT interference and upgrades are initiated seamlessly by end users through app stores or single desktop link.
The Center’s students learn how to attack, analyze and defend systems and can study areas of virtualization, information assurance, cloud computing, fraud detection and formal method development. The center, which is run entirely by students, requires constant adds and deletions as students come and go each semester and students participate in attack and defend exercises, which the center does not want replicated on its own network. Array enables secure access to office PCs or virtual desktops by students, faculty and administrators without the risk of data leakage or risk of malicious attack. With Array’s solution, users access desktop applications without the content actually being transferred to outside devices
“With Array we have been able to deploy best-of-breed technology within the constraints of the Center’s limited IT budget” says Michael Stephenson, virtual laboratory systems manager of Norwich University. “The scalability and consistent high performance of the solution has allowed the faculty and IT department to save time and effort as AG Series secure access gateway seamlessly handles heavy traffic loads. Array’s solution supports the broad range of platforms used by students and faculties and the efficiency of the Center’s IT department has been tremendously improved.”
“Array is pleased to work with Norwich and helping to develop the skills of students who will in the future guard corporate and government networks from cyber-attack,” noted Paul Andersen, Director of Marketing at Array Networks. “Our AG Series secure access gateway provides the next-generation of education and work with trusted, secure remote access to needed applications.”
