Norwich School has deployed ForeScout’s CounterACT to provide enhanced visibility for devices accessing its network.
Norwich School is a co-educational, independent day school for pupils aged seven to 18. Norwich School required a network access control (NAC) solution to increase the visibility and security compliance of devices being used by its 1050 students and approximately 250 staff, in one location across multiple buildings.
“CounterACT, in our opinion, had an easier to use interface which makes setting up, managing and viewing potential threats a far easier task. With a small team it was critical that NAC wouldn’t take up too much of our time, both in the set up phase and beyond,” said Steve Banyard, network manager at Norwich School. “Another major appeal was that we wouldn’t have to modify our network to integrate the product. Also, there are multiple ways to enforce security policies depending on your environment and the client agent is optional.”
