Milton Security Group, Inc., the premier manufacturer of the ICEGuard and Edge 7200 adaptive network security appliances and network management solutions, announced today the release of an integration system between their Cloud Authentication & Security (CAS for short) and Microsoft Office 365 for Education.

Identify, Control and Enforce

"Since the first release of CAS this year, which first utilized Google Apps For Education Authentication, many of our education customers have been asking for the ability to leverage their Microsoft Office 365 for Education accounts. Today we give them what they want," said Jim McMurry, CEO. "CAS will now enable educational organizations to use their current Microsoft Office 365 for Education accounts for authentication purposes. Combined with our ICEGuard enforcement appliances, they will be able to effectively maintain strict security control on the physical networks in each and every school."

Data breaches in educational institutions are skyrocketing, and many IT departments have to work within the constraints of a tight budget. It is difficult to afford the visibility, identification, and control needed to protect their schools. The combination of CAS and the Milton ICEGuard adaptive network access control appliance (Adaptive NAC), gives each school the ability to know the who, what, when, where, and how of every user attempting to access the network, and it does so at a considerably lower cost than any other cyber security company in the market.

"Office 365 for Education is very popular on school campuses across the country," continues McMurry. "It provides a unique login for each student/staff member. Why not use it to grant specific and granular access to the network while it's at it? CAS for ICEGuard does that."

Availability

Cloud Authentication Security (CAS) is available now, with special Educational pricing available during the month of May 2014.

ICEGuard Adaptive Network Access Control (NAC) appliances are available immediately in various configurations.
