"We needed a security solution that could help us regulate Internet utilization by students. Earlier, we did not have any measure to monitor or control Internet usage, which was not cost effective"

Need of an Intelligent Multitasking Device
The need was to aggregate bandwidth from two separate ISPs and ensure 100% uptime throughout the year, while providing access to sites and materials that were safe and in line with University Policy. The other requirement was to ensure that the available resources were allocated to users according to business priorities, the academic calendar or even events taking place on the USIU campus.
The Cyberoam’s On-Cloud Management Service Solution
USIU was looking for a security solution that could help them regulate Internet usage and ensure that increase in Internet capacity was measured in line with their strategic plan. After extensive online research, they came across Cyberoam which suited their business requirements. In addition, local support availability was an added benefit for them. They started off by purchasing One (1) CR500ia Appliance.
