Campus security - time for a change?

Security challenges faced in enterprise-wide computer networks are likely to become a hallmark of 2010.

Organizations are moving to a Secure Network Fabric to respond and address the constant need for security and policy enforcement throughout the network, says Derek Wiggill, 3Com Africa regional sales director. “A network security solution needs to ensure that only legitimate network packets reach their appropriate destinations”.

Global enforcement should also be imposed everywhere in the network topology, rather than using chokepoints. Enforcement management must also be centralized, reducing inconsistencies and costs.

University and large campus networks are focusing on identity-based policies and user access management issues because they experience a large population of users, bringing their own unmanaged systems on to the internal network, and are not completely trusted. Assigning new users to groups, such as staff and administrators, or grouping students by major, can ensure appropriate access to various resources in a manageable fashion.
