Here are some suggestions.
- You can use and anti-virus and firewall at the gateway level. And deploy
desktop anti-viruses and firewalls on each PC.
- You can purchase separate firewall and anti-viruses or use a multi-function
security service that has a combination of firewall, ant-virus, IDS, and spam
- Use a central management console so you can update virus signatures regularly.
- Network security is a combination of technology and culture. You must train
the users and make them aware of the need to exercise caution when surfing.
You must ask them not to open any attachments without scanning them, not to
visit unproductive sites, and not use a floppy or CD-ROM before scanning them
- Security is not a one time affair. After you have deployed the solutions
and created awareness among the users, you must review the solutions periodically
and train each new batch of students.
All the best.

An IVR can certainly be added to a toll-free number. The responsibility of making
a number toll-free lies with the local telephone exchange, who will send you
the bill for all incoming calls.
The IVR server will sit in your premises and will be the gateway point for all
incoming calls. Based on the response of the caller the IVR will route the call
to the appropriate extension.
