From universities to grade schools, education institutions are increasingly leveraging technology to meet their unique challenges. With sometimes tens of thousands of students, faculty members and staff needing access to applications and documents from remote locations, it is a huge challenge for IT teams to accommodate these people while maintaining security requirements with optimal efficiency.

Despite limited IT budgets, education institutions focus much of their funding on IT services as they are aware that the benefits of remote access and cloud computing are endless. With the logical implications of cloud computing, 40% of K-12 schools are utilizing to cloud computing for data storage, according to a study by CDW Government, a provider of government technology products and services.
