Author: JT Smith

CDW Government announced the results of the 2008 School Safety Index, the national benchmark on the current status of public school district safety. Measured on a scale from zero to 100, the national cyber safety average this year was 38.6, down 25 percent since 2007. This yearââ¬â¢s Index finds that NAC is emerging as an essential IT tool for K-12 school districts, with 57 percent using NAC to view and control who and what is on the network. Rural districts lead NAC adoption at 60 percent, followed by suburban districts at 54 percent and urban districts at 45 percent.
