Webinar | Securing Digital Transformation in Higher Ed

This webinar is a part of the EDUCAUSE Industry & Campus Solutions series.

Would you believe me if I told you that students might really be choosing where to go to college based on how good the wireless is on campus? This is an example of how digital transformation is disrupting every industry by breaking down barriers between people, the devices they carry, and how they interact with businesses and institutions. Users get this "right now" experience from the apps they use every day on their smartphones and are starting to expect the same from their college or university.

Digital Transformation means exploiting the full potential of modern information technology to quickly introduce new capabilities that improve services while securing the privacy of students, faculty, and staff. At the same time, it allows you to save time and money. From the perspective of the IT professional, it means maintaining visibility and control while taking advantage of both public and private clouds. It means securely rolling out apps faster and making your users say "wow" in a good way.


  • Understand what digital transformation means for your institution
  • Hear how digital transformation will impact your ability to secure your institution while embracing the digital world
  • Learn how modern IT and security solutions can help you offer exciting new capabilities to your users
  • Find out how solutions offered from the cloud are faster and easier to deploy, manage, and use
