A number of our students are up to no good because they have installed either a VPN app, or VPN services on their iPads. This has been banned at our school because we don't want student's by-passing our firewall.

How would you remove this from a student's iPad. 

Majority of iPads are supervised and we use the Casper Suite for our MDM.

I work for a large school district and we are 1 to 1 iPads at the middle school level and I had to go to creating a IP Firewall Policy and deny the students from using a VPN.

I had this on our Aerohive devices but the IP firewall caused many issues where it would not let clients connect because it would max out each IP sessions. Since the removal of the firewall, clients have been able to use IPsec but we're now not experiencing wifi connections issues. Any other ideas?
