SMCJUHSD Penetration Testing and PAN Firewall Analysis

SMCJUHSD Penetration Testing and PAN Firewall Analysis

The Challenge

South Monterey County Joint Union High School District
(SMCJUHSD) required a Penetration Testing on their networks,
which comprised three high schools. SMCJUHSD has two Palo
Alto Networks Firewall PA-5220s, one at King City High School
and one at the Greenfield High School. The Director of IT was
concerned about security and wanted Accend to review the two
firewalls for best practice configurations and also the security
architecture.

Client: South Monterey County Joint Union
High School District (SMCJUHSD)
Location: King City, California
Website: www2.smcjuhsd.org

Our Solution

Accend provided a senior security consultant who was certified in Palo Alto Networks (PCNSE) and a CCIE in Security
and Routing & Switching to assist SMCJUHSD with the Penetration Testing, Firewall Analysis, and Security Architecture
Review.

The Results

Accend provided SMCJUHSD security assessment reports of the two environments, which lists all the security
vulnerabilities discovered. Outside of the security scans, Accend also manually reviewed the PA-5220s for SMCJUHSD’s
two high schools. Security issues were found and recommendations were made accordingly on the security policies,
appliance, and security architecture.

SMCJUHSD was very pleased with the security assessment that a re-assessment was done a year after the initial scan.
