Federal cybersecurity solutions are modernizing rapidly due to the evolving nature of the types and scale of threats we face. The White House’s Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity has made every federal agency evaluate their current posture and identify short and long term tasks to improve cyber resilience. Prevention and detection of attacks and breaches need to be made in a systems engineering approach where the flow of mission and cybersecurity information is managed in a zero trust framework. To scale to support the geographic dispersion of our workforce and customer base and to continuously monitor cyber posture, cloud computing is a key enabler.
