LANGuardian helps network engineers to address the specific system administration and network mangaement challenges posed by campus networks.

There are several important differences between campus networks and corporate networks:

  • Campus networks usually have very large numbers of users at a single location.
  • The network tends to be used for leisure as well as network activities.
  • Users have more freedom than corporate users – for example, in terms of allowed hardware, software, and mobile devices.
  • Users are less aware of information security issues than users on corporate networks.
  • Attacks from within the network are more common than in corporate networks.

These network characteristics typically lead to network issues such as bottlenecks, performance issues, copyright infringement, virus proliferation, and intrusions. LANGuardian gives the campus network engineer a single point of access to all the information that is needed identify and resolve these problems.
