Cyberoam, a network security appliances company, and its New Zealand distributor SnapperNet, have announced a discount policy for schools, universities, academies and any other educational institutions in the country.
The education pricing will enable institutions to purchase Cyberoam products and subscriptions at discounted prices.
Richard Paul, director at SnapperNet Distributors, said that the discount will apply to all Cyberoam hardware appliances, virtual appliances and UTM feature licenses.
“The threat landscape is constantly changing. New malware is being created and if security solutions aren’t constantly maintained by vendors, their infrastructure is at real risk of attack. Students are savvy about getting around firewalls,” he says, “and often share passwords or show little concern for security issues,” said Paul.
Paul added that SnapperNet will work with the system integrator or reseller to come up with a discount or a final price that works for their customers.
“Customers from the education sector comprise a major part of the Cyberoam users,” said Alkesh Soneji, who overlooks the Australia and New Zealand market for Cyberoam. “Protecting students and other network users, from malware and inappropriate content, remains the primary need among educational institutes, and Cyberoam solutions offer user identification and control even in shared environments.”
Albany Junior High School and Mardsen College in Wellington are among the educational institutes that SnapperNet and Cyberoam are working with in the country.
