Agencies making the move to the cloud have to deal with operational challenges, but also with persistent myths about cloud security. Cloud security duties for agencies can be complicated and vary among different varieties of cloud services, from infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) to platform-as-a-service (PaaS). Trend Micro’s cloud platform helps cut through some of the complications and practical challenges that arise with different cloud types and responsibilities for automation and cloud-native security resources with consistency. The platform presents one agent, one console, and consistent features and functionality for infrastructure and platform services.

How can agencies protect access to their most valuable resources – data, applications, and infrastructure – on-prem or in the cloud? The only practical control plane still available across all networks, devices, users, applications, etc. are Identity-centric controls. With Zero Trust, it’s a holistic, strategic approach to security that ensures that everyone and every device granted access is who and what they say they are.
This whitepaper will help you understand how Identity is the new battleground in cyber security, how a Zero Trust approach helps protect against identity-based attacks, and the key elements of Zero Trust.

To meet the high expectations of today’s government users, reduce development time of digital experiences, and eliminate potential security gaps, government agencies need to put employee, citizen, and other user identity front and center. In order to accomplish this, public sector enterprises are employing modern Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) solutions.

The Okta Identity Cloud helps DoD organizations manage their extended enterprise by making it possible for them to embrace the secure cloud, at scale — while also extending the same strong authentication to on-prem apps, such as WAM; reduce the complexity of managing separate password and authentication policies across on-premise and cloud resources; and provide a consistent and seamless access experience for end users, eliminating password fatigue and improving onboarding time.
Known as Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management, FICAM is the U.S. government’s approach to Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM). There are numerous federal laws, policies, and standards that influence the design of FICAM programs. One of these—the OMB 19-17 Memorandum—sets out the federal government’s position on identity, credential, and access management (ICAM) and issues multiple strategic goals for agencies to work towards. These goals are intended to modernize digital operations, thereby improving security and better serving citizens and partners. In this whitepaper, we’ll explore what OMB 19-17 means for your agency. Plus, we’ll discuss how an Okta and Amazon Web Services (AWS) partnership can help you to comply with FICAM requirements and perform at full potential.

Meet the growing demands of your citizens and constituents as remote work becomes the new normal. In this ebook, Get to Know Cloud Content Management for Government Agencies, see how managing your content in the cloud lets you automate critical workflows and secure data across teams inside and outside your perimeter.
In many ways, the past year has been government’s time to shine. Despite massive disruption, IT and business leaders have risen to the task of enabling remote work and delivering constituent services in new ways. At the same time, they’ve encountered daunting technology challenges as overburdened web portals crashed and slow page loads frustrated users seeking unemployment relief and other urgent services. To address these challenges and prepare for emerging technologies that require secure, real-time data processing at massive scale, many government IT leaders are turning to edge computing, where the collection and processing of data occurs closer to the sources of that data to improve latency, availability and security.

The work from-home scenario exposed system limitations. It was difficult to rapidly scale contact center operations to meet demand while also transitioning employees to a work-from-home environment. Websites were crashing and citizens were often on hold for long periods if they were able to get through at all. As a result citizens, grew increasingly frustrated by the lack of information available and inability to easily contact someone for help. While most agencies were working on digital transformation as it pertains to customer experience, communication modalities and automation have quickly become requirements based on changes across the 2020 business landscape. A cloud-native contact center solution focused around automation enables agencies to address customer experience (CX) goals, provide much needed scalability while enabling worker location flexibility.

Business landscapes have changed with the dawn of new technologies, and as a result, the end-user computing experience has changed as well. More is required today to allow employees in a variety of locations to access applications their work revolves around.
While providing the freedom to work from any location on any device can be a great way to attract talent, it is usually not the most important driver behind the adoption of a modern end user computing (EUC) solution. That distinction goes to security.
Today, the industry is decades into virtualization’s conquering of the data center and at least a decade into the hybrid cloud era. Enterprises can also affordably leverage flash storage and new data center architectural options to transform and improve the methods by which end-users consume enterprise resources.
