The complexity of existing business applications and the environment that has grown up around them can limit the potential for innovation. Taking mainframe applications forward and making the mainframe work harder requires a different type of approach to remove a number of constraints. Mainframe modernization is not one of the current “buzz” terms in the government technology sector, but it is fundamental to enacting many of the current Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandates. Without updating mainframe-based legacy systems, most agencies cannot consolidate their data center environments, move to the cloud to share services or enable the mobile workforce. Mainframes are the foundation for many missions across government, and should remain a topic
of discussion as agencies work to innovate and reduce costs in IT.

As government modernizes its information technology capabilities, the ability to successfully manage the identities of internal and external users – employees, constituents, contractors, partners, suppliers, et. al. – will be more critical than ever. Many of the advanced and emerging IT tools that improve government’s efficiency and effectiveness also alter the security landscape.

We’re dubbing 2019 the year of the cloud. Why? Fueled by the new federal cloud computing strategy, Cloud Smart, agencies are poised to fast-track adoption and breakthrough the burdensome policy barriers that have been holding them back. With knowledge sharing and purchasing flexibility on the rise, the time is now for federal agencies to make their move. But what trends will influence this frenzy of activity the most over the next 12-months?

Too often, agencies procure new contracts to build on legacy networks that either are inadequate, overall, or don't sufficiently support emerging technologies that can help meet growing cyber demands. In this Roundtable Webcast, sponsored by MetTel and Forcepoint, Mark Bunn, program manager for DHS’s Trusted Internet Connections will discuss agency needs in networking and cybersecurity. Don't forget to bring your questions for our government and expert speakers!
In this 60-minute webcast, OneSpan is joined by Michele Thomas, Chief Information Security Officer of the US Department of Transportation/NHTSA, in a Fire-Side chat around the authentication that exists today in the Federal Government, as well as where technology may be heading.
Join Technica and Juniper Networks and understand why Gartner predicts that by 2020, more than 50% of WAN edge infrastructure refresh initiatives will be based on SD-WAN versus traditional routers.
Contrail SD-WAN from Juniper delivers SD-WAN topology management, Application analytics and Application based routing with SLA and Integrated security.

Many factors are in play that affect the federal workforce—emerging technology and automation, changing customer demands, and evolving agency priorities. One of the PMA goals is to strategically and actively manage the workforce so that critical skill sets will be available in the future.
Technological advances, demographics, consumers, and talent markets are shaping the future of work, creating threats and opportunities. Learn how government employees and machines can work together to optimize our collective impact.
Online threats are escalating. Firewalls and antivirus software help, but they can’t guarantee the security of critical data. The only sure defense is an air gap that completely isolates sensitive information from the global internet. Belkin Secure KVM switches insert an impenetrable buffer between your secure system and your internet-connected computers – while still allowing both systems to share a keyboard, monitor and mouse.
Cybersecurity threats are real. And they’re everywhere. Belkin guards against those threats by keeping sensitive information on secure isolated networks. A secure KVM switch helps protect networks where they’re most vulnerable – at the desktop. But what happens when new technology threatens to undermine stability? By eliminating complexity, the Belkin Universal Secure KVM switch protects security, performance and budgets.
The IT function of federal government agencies is in transition. Agencies are shrinking their hardware and becoming more efficient. They’re moving from siloed, inefficient, legacy systems to IT networks with architectures that promise greater flexibility, easier scalability and more usability. Agencies are streamlining functionality by consolidating data centers and moving toward integrated and converged systems. Making the transition requires making difficult choices.
