Build a Case for Intelligent Automation

Agencies are having to do more with less, but still must deliver efficient services to meet rising citizen expectations. This environment makes a compelling case for intelligent automation, which can help agencies improve interactions with their constituents and enhance employee job satisfaction.

The Advantages of User Awareness in Public-Sector Network Security

To serve their citizens, federal/national, state and local governments must gather, create or process sensitive information. As various high profile breaches have demonstrated, this data is not sufficiently protected, particularly from the insiders whose actions are responsible for the majority of public-sector security incidents. Preventing security incidents and protecting government information requires a comprehensive, organization-wide access approach that can accommodate the context of individual users, the data they need access to, and the limits on what they can do with that data.


Leveraging CDM to Improve Cybersecurity

The Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program is available to U.S. government civilian agencies, as well as state, local, tribal and territorial departments and agencies, and covers 15 continuous diagnostic capabilities rolled out in three phases. Phase 1 focuses on Endpoint Integrity, Phase 2 covers Least Privilege and Infrastructure Integrity, while Phase 3 is concerned with Boundary Protection and Event Management. The CDM program uses commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) tools to automate the process of continually scanning an IT environment to discover, report and manage security flaws.


CDM and Cybersecurity Evolve with the Times

The variety and volume of cyberthreats continues to increase, especially as cloud computing, the Internet of Things, and mobile computing continue to increase in popularity. Securing government agency networks is a complicated and constantly evolving task, requiring the right mix of technology tools, business savvy and workforce expertise. Agencies have to manage evolving network dynamic, according to industry and government speakers at the recent event CDM: Pushing the Boundaries of Cybersecurity on March 23, 2017.

That means understanding all IT assets—cost, location, or potential redundancy. Download this IT Playbook to learn helpful tips to get your agency on the path to FIARA success.


Apply Modern DLP for Full Protection

As budgets tighten, risks change, and government mandates grow, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) emerges as a way to minimize costs, avoid incidents, and simplify compliance. DLP tools identify exactly where data is at all times— at rest, in transit and in use. Download this whitepaper to find out the key capabilities needed to ensure the most comprehensive level of protection for your agency’s data.


Improve Cybersecurity with Network Visibilty

Federal agency executives are making modernizing their IT a high priority. And it’s not just to provide citizens with the high-quality digital services they expect these days. There are federal mandates like FITARA. Plus it’s just good business sense. Many agencies are held back with legacy systems that are expensive to maintain, difficult to secure and integrate and simply don’t perform at the level required to support modern digital services. The cloud is emerging as the preferred platform to support these IT modernization efforts. The cloud provides the flexibility, agility and security government agencies need as they move to modernize IT.


CDM Program Will Combat Cyberthreats

Cyberthreats continue to bring security concerns to government organizations.
