Community college boosts BYOD security

North Hennepin Community College partners with Good Technology for secure mobile BYOD solution.

BYOD-mobileIn an effort to improve its BYOD security, North Hennepin Community College is using Good Technology’s Good Enterprise Suite for its BYOD solution, enabling secure access to work emails, student assignments, strategic plans, and more.

North Hennepin Community College, part of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, is one of the largest community colleges in the state with over 10,000 students and 500 employees. Faculty and administrators have demonstrated a desire to grade assignments and review documents from their personal devices, and the college’s IT department needed a BYOD solution that protects student information and intellectual property, while separating work and personal data.

“With so much back and forth between classrooms and meetings, higher education employees need the ability to work from their personal devices,” said Kristine Boike, Dean of Academic and Technology Services, North Hennepin Community College. “In addition to providing top security and usability, our faculty is saving hours each week through Good’s efficient workflows.”
