Mitigating BYOD Security Issues on Campus with DNS and DHCP

Wednesday, April 11 | 2:45PM–3:45PM ET | Maryland Ballroom F, Fifth Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Universities are facing a new era of network challenges, in large part due to the explosion of BYOD. The breadth of connected devices on campus puts more pressure on network services, while running the additional risk of uncontrolled security levels. Too often, a single device can be the cause of a widespread outage. Based on practical solution implementation at the University of Tennessee, this session will cover solving higher ed BYOD challenges through DNS and DHCP architecture best practices and mitigating DNS malware with solutions beyond traditional IP-based blocking.

Understand potential campus network security-related events caused by DNS and DHCP * Learn about UT's network challenges and its process of selecting a new network architecture and security solution * Learn how DNS and DHCP, with built-in security, can act as a source of protection
