Contract for Campus Central Firewall Services Signed

Earlier this May of 2005, the campus signed a contract with Netscreen to provide a range of firewall solutions to campus departments. IET will offer the following four firewall service level options:

  • Complete turnkey service managed by IET
  • Department-owned and operated service
  • Equipment sparing service
  • Custom installation service

Firewall training for system administrators and other technical staff is anticipated to begin in July. As a first step, Netscreen will provide training for IET staff, using a train-the-trainer approach. Netscreen will also provide additional training classes, which will be targeted at departmental security administrators. On-going training will be provided by IET. Additional training opportunities are being explored, including web-based training and virtual laboratories.
