Toowoomba Grammar School: Firewall & Network Monitoring Upgrade

Toowoomba Grammar School: Firewall & Network Monitoring Upgrade

Client Profile

Toowoomba Grammar School was established under the Grammar Schools Act of 1860 to provide a quality education designed for boys. TGS is a non-denominational, independent day and boarding school for boys from Prep to Year 12. TGS has built its reputation upon high quality teaching, excellent academic results, outstanding pastoral care and a holistic approach to the education and formation of young men.

The Challenge

There was no visibility into threat and response data, and limited user-based reporting. As a result, it was unknown if the security devices were effective, and to what extent, or the extent to which it protected the variety of TGS network users – staff, students, and guests.


Aryon presented a turn-key migration that integrated multi-layered systems to provide Identity Based Controls, Just-in-Time access, and Extended Reporting based on the Palo Alto firewall platform.

The solution considered the varying user types (students, educators, guests etc.) to ensure that access, monitoring and reporting were all optimised.
