The Internet2 NET+ program is excited to share that four new services are joining the program: CloudCheckr, Google Workspace for Education, Palo Alto Networks, and signNow/airSlate. Cloud providers undergo a robust, community-led service evaluation process in order to be accepted into the Internet2 NET+ program. It is through NET+ that the community is able to leverage these solutions in an established community of practice; sharing use cases, deployment best practices, and successful strategies for broad adoption to help institutions improve how they operate while better serving students, faculty, and administrators.
