While we’ve explained the ins and outs of the E-rate program during the five-part SonicWall E-rate Fear Less series, we wanted to use the final episode to explore the common questions about the E-rate program itself and how SonicWall cyber security solutions may be funded via the program. Episode Five: E-rate Fear Less Series Q&A Holly Davis interviews SonicWall software business development director John Mullen.
As we near the conclusion of the SonicWall E-rate Fear Less video series, you should be gaining more familiarity with E-rate program benefits and what’s required to submit bids to RFPs. Before you begin that process, it’s important to explore the technology infrastructure (specifically what’s eligible in Category Two) as defined within the E-rate program by Universal Service Administration Company (USAC) and how each relates to the E-rate funding process.
The E-rate program is critical for K12 organizations that lack the funding to procure appropriate technology, such as networking and cyber security solutions (e.g., firewalls, wireless network security, etc.). But understanding the program — as well as confirming your E-rate eligibility — can be daunting. Episode Three: The E-rate Fear Less Solution On the third episode of the E-rate Fear Less series, Komplement CEO Holly Davis discusses school eligibility, discounts levels and the competitive bidding process.
Participating in your first E-rate season can be overwhelming. It is important to understand eligibility requirements of the program since the forms and terminology can become confusing. To better understand the ins and outs of the E-rate program, watch Episode 2 of the SonicWall Fear Less E-rate video series below. Episode Two: Navigating the E-rate Program On the second episode of the E-rate Fear Less series, Komplement CEO Holly Davis highlights key elements of the E-rate program to help you navigate the process.
We know how much value SonicWall network security brings to our customers, and we know how much value our partners add when incorporating our solutions into their solutions for our customers. The case of Calistoga Unified Regional School District is an excellent example. Calistoga is in California’s Napa Valley. The district has more than 850 students, divided among an elementary school, junior/senior high school and an alternative-program continuation high school for students between the ages of 16 and 18.
Recently, the personal information of Palo Alto High School students was published via a website that allowed students to see class rankings, grade-point averages and identification numbers.

Every day our children, teachers and administrators log into the network at school. How can you ensure the data travelling across that network is secure from hidden threats and attacks such as ransomware? With SonicWall next-gen firewalls and DPI SSL inspection technology, IT administrators can find threats hidden in encrypted web traffic that cybercriminals don’t want you to discover across your K-12 network.

Getting a discount on something you’ve purchase is always a little exciting. We all like to feel like we’re getting a bargain and saving money. After all, who doesn’t need some extra cash? Budgets always seem to be tight. This is especially true for schools and libraries. Funding is frequently limited and in tough fiscal times state and local governments need to make cuts with education often feeling the brunt.
A few weeks ago my eldest son was given a Chromebook by his school which he brought to the house to do his homework. Before the Chromebook, he did his homework on the PC I had set him up with in his room. The nice thing about that is I have a firewall with a content (aka URL or web) filtering policy in place so I have control over the websites he can access since he’s getting to the internet through our home network.
