Artificial Intelligence (AI) Comes of Age

The promise of practical AI and machine-learning is particularly relevant to the IT modernization efforts currently underway throughout government agencies. Driven by the expectations of an increasingly digital-savvy public, agencies have been straining to transform their sprawling, aged, costly, and resource-heavy IT environments into something that can quickly and efficiently deliver citizen-friendly digital services. Learn more about this technology modernization in this Enterprise Outlook report.


Cyber Guide: Stay Ahead of Security

If there is one constant in the world of cybersecurity, it’s that nothing stays the same. The manner in which agencies connect to and use technology continues to evolve and unfortunately cyberthreats are also changing to adapt and find new vulnerabilities.


Buyers Guide: Cybersecurity

Cyber criminals constantly innovate their threat tactics to more efficiently breach organizations and make off with valuable data. As cybercrime evolves, we see increased innovation in the hacking tools and techniques used to evade known security mechanisms. In the past few years, we have seen more advanced, targeted attacks, where hackers spent ample time investigating the target and tailoring the threat. Keeping up with new attack techniques, and effectively defending against advanced threats, is perhaps the biggest challenge facing security teams today. In a world of cyberthreats where the only constant is change, architecting a cybersecurity solution that dynamically adapts to constant change is crucial.


6 Keys to Government Cloud Modernization

Maintaining a flexible infrastructure, as well s flexible processes and attitudes, is critical to truly modernizing the government’s use of the cloud. Explore this Infographic to learn the 6 keys to government modernization.


Army's Next Contract Move

As technology continues to evolve, contract vehicles also have to change to keep up with the needs of government agencies in how they procure technology. The Army’s IT Enterprise Solution (ITES) contracts are a good example of that; especially the hardware-specific contract ITES-3H.


NETCENTS-2 Makes Good Business Sense

The Defense Department’s focus on net-centric war fighting has sharpened over the past decade. Along the way, its IT contract vehicles have become more important as a way to focus technology on that goal. Network Centric Solutions-2 (NETCENTS-2) is a critical contract vehicle to help the Air Force acquire technology tailored to its specific mission needs.


Maximize the Cloud

In order to get the most out of cloud, agencies need a holistic plan that considers not only the technology, but also the cultural, policy, and funding issues associated with this fundamental shift. Read this one-page paper for some quick expert tips on leveraging cloud the right way.


View Data as an Asset

Who owns your data? Download this informative report to hear how the Small Business Administration (SBA) is managing their cloud strategy, along with understanding the importance of data ownership, data management and data governance and how a shift to the cloud can prepare your agency to successfully manage the influx of data.


Give Cloud its Due

Cloud is an integral part of an agency's modernization plan today. As agencies begin to move to modernize systems and consolidate data centers, they are looking to the cloud to improve the flexibility, efficiency, and scalability of their operations - as well as how to sustain cloud in the long term. Download this informative report focused on a recent cloud event to hear how different agencies are saying farewell to their data center, evaluating their cloud options and communicating with their team to successfully transition to the cloud.


Cloud Security Evolves

As cloud becomes an integral part of an agency’s enterprise, security becomes even more crucial. Learn how the cloud creates a new dynamic between agencies, users, and vendor partners with regards to their cybersecurity roles and responsibilities, and why there must be transparency in how these roles are carried out.


Disrupt the Machine-to-Human Fight with a New Defender Lifecycle Model

Traditional security strategies focused on prevention are no longer sufficient to defend against the increasing speed, volume and polymorphic nature of today’s cyber threats. Instead, organizations must embrace a new Defender Lifecycle Model, which shifts control and advantage from the attacker back to the defender by integrating machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and security workflow automation with a foundation of pervasive coverage.
