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.
SonicWall has recently been named the 85th Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) Numbering Authority (CNA) by the MITRE Corporation, an international not-for-profit security institute. What does this mean for SonicWall and the cyber security world at large? SonicWall has a new way to contribute to cyber security education and defense. The purpose of the CVE program is to provide a method and consortium for identifying vulnerabilities in a standardized manner.
Network security is often too focused on traditional business. But there are more than 100,000 K12 campuses in the U.S. alone. Each have similar security challenges as the standard enterprise or business, but its users (i.e., most commonly students) require more careful and dedicated protection. Episode 1: An Explanation of E-Rate To help K12 organizations and technology partners better understand opportunities provided by the E-rate program, SonicWall E-rate and cyber security experts explain the history of the program, its importance to K12 organizations, discount levels, and eligible technologies and solutions.
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.

A few weeks ago one of my sons got a new Chromebook at school. The old one had been around for a few years and was rather outdated in terms of the technology. The new version has a touch screen and can be used as a laptop or tablet. Not exactly new to anyone in the tech world, but for a kid it’s pretty exciting.
