Hoboken, New Jersey - (Vocus) May 7, 2013 — Hudson Catholic has joined with eMazzanti Technologies, a computer consultant in the Hoboken, NJ and New York City areas, to produce a new video showcasing the school’s technology transition and how it’s making a difference in the lives of the students.
“Our mission statement focuses on individual and community responsibility, noted said Richard Garibell, MA, President/Principal. “This kind of sums up what we’re all about.”
According to Michael Herrera, Ed.D, Associate Principal, eMazzanti is considered to be at the forefront of technology, has a proven track record in education and has excellent customer service.
“Two of our alumni mentioned eMazzanti was a company we should contact to solve our technology problems,” said Garibell. “So, they came highly recommended.”

Technology Brings Curriculum Alive
eMazzanti has helped give our teacher tools to bring curriculum alive,” said Astudillo, BA. “The students can submit all of their assignments online as well as access any of their notes—all through any desktop or mobile device.”
“Our technology goal was to bring the 21st Century model classroom to Hudson Catholic,” continued Astudillo. “And, thanks to eMazzanti, it’s happening.”
Hudson Catholic has steadily integrated new technology into its school over the last few years and now has 200 computers, making more than a 3:1 ratio of computers to students. Obviously, the Internet is playing a more important role in the educational lives of both students and faculty and it was time to address security and access issues in a more comprehensive way. For example, student access to inappropriate material needed to be managed to the school’s written policy, the network needed additional protection against viruses and malware, and confidential information needed to be secure.
Evolving in a Digital World
“Hudson Catholic continues to evolve from an analog classroom to a digital classroom enjoying online access to vast amounts of knowledge. However, with this evolution is the need to protect students, data and bandwidth”, said Michael Herrera, Ed. D., Associate Principal, Hudson Catholic Regional High School.
Tapping the IT expertise of eMazzanti Technologies, a new eCare Network Solution was developed that consisted of a WatchGuard XTM firewall device linked to eMazzanti’s 24x7x365 network monitoring system. The solution optimized the bandwidth of the school’s busy network, protected the network against virus and malware attacks, and ensured all data remained confidential.
The eMazzanti solution provides user reports so school authorities may empirically monitor Internet use, making changes that better serve students and faculty.
