The university that distributes iPhones to students--Abilene Christian University--is adapting its network access and security strategy to deal with an ever-increasing volume of mobile devices on campus.

This year Abilene Christian University will dole out 2,000 iPhones to incoming freshmen and to existing students who need upgraded devices. Each of those gadgets carries network security threats that can be hard enough to monitor and control on an individual basis, let alone across an entire college campus.

To ensure that every one of those IP-enabled iPhones adheres to security policies and doesn't create a threat to the network, the university developed a plan of action that was largely based on existing policies that governed the use of laptops and computers on its wireless network.
