Leverage the Power of IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) is poised as a technological game changer. Government agencies are already deploying devices and sensors to gather data, while others are still experimenting with or studying options to leverage the IoT. As with any new technology, these capabilities come with a lot of promise, but also many implementation concerns and challenges. Chief among those concerns are management and security, experts said during the recent webcast, “Taking IT to the Edge: Delivering on the Promise of IoT.” As the new era of computing presents precautions and potential for government agencies, learn how to leverage the power of IoT.


Shared Services and Emerging Technologies Modernize Government

It’s no secret technology evolves rapidly, and that government agencies can’t keep up. That’s why the concept of shared services—centralizing service provisioning—has made waves among federal agencies. It has evolved over time, from a 20th century model in which agencies looked inward to a 21st-century model based on as-a-service offerings and outsourcing. Learn from the experts to hear how federal agencies are using technology of the future today to meet mission requirements and budgets.


Data-Driven Decisions Streamline Agency Operations

As agencies continue to gather more data, deriving the maximum amount of value and intelligence from the data becomes even more critical. Properly applying data analytics can help present the right data in the right format. Structured and unstructured data, operational data, financial results, and other data can be mined to unlock insights that help drive improved decisions and understanding. This report helps illuminate the tactics agency leaders can take to glean more value form their data stores.


Content Management is Key to Solving a Data Deluge

In a recent survey, we asked agencies about how they are currently managing their data, their views on modernization efforts and what plans they have to establish true digital transformation. In this market insights report, we breakdown the key take-a-ways from our survey findings.


AI, Analytics and the Future of Your Enterprise

Data is the new currency. Are you capitalizing on the full potential of data analytics? In our big data primer, you’ll learn how to overcome three key challenges facing organizations today: Managing overwhelming amounts of data; Leveraging new, complex tools and technologies; Developing the necessary skills and infrastructure. The future belongs to organizations that leverage their data most effectively, so don't wait.


Modern Storage Accelerates Data Insights, Speeding Innovation

Deep learning opens up new worlds of possibility in AI, enabled by advances in computational capacity, the explosion in data, and the advent of deep neural networks. But data is evolving quickly and legacy storage systems are not keeping up. Read this MIT Technology Review custom paper to learn how advanced AI applications require a modern all-flash storage infrastructure that is built specifically to work with high-powered analytics, helping to accelerate business outcomes.


People are the Heart of Network Security

As technology and federal agency business practices evolve, so too do the best practices associated with maintaining an effective security posture. Involving the people more directly through training sessions and less formal one-on-one conversations, even having them help craft network security guidelines, is moving in the right direction. You can learn how successful agencies are doing this by registering for this whitepaper.


Team Approach Helps Agencies Overcome CDM Challenges

Now in its fifth year, the Department of Homeland Security’s Continuous Diagnostics and Monitoring (CDM) system is intended to help provide federal agencies with the tools and processes they need to ensure greater security and better defense against cyberthreats. Many agencies have made significant progress, but increased and more involved partnerships are critical to continuing to move forward. Read more about this high level approach by registering to receive this whitepaper.


Identity Management Continues to Evolve

As federal agencies continue their march toward modernization and meeting the requirements of the federal CDM mandates, they are finding new tools and frameworks to help meet mandates and mission requirements. New technologies and increased use of cloud services are also changing the way agencies handle identity management. While there has been significant progress, many gaps remain that will involve not only new technology, but also evolving business processes. Register for this whitepaper to understand the experts’ approach.


Protect Data Wherever It Exists

Risk management and data protection policies are struggling to keep up with the ever-expanding network edge, mobile devices, and employees working for virtually anywhere on an expanding array of devices. Traditional approaches to securing data no longer apply. Now agencies need to better understand where data is located, where it’s moving to, and use segmented approach to apply more protection to more valuable data; as this whitepaper explains.

Blockchain: Distributed Ledger Holds Promise for Agencies

Blockchain is gaining traction among agencies as a way to create permanent, secure, and transparent transactions for numerous application beyond the original intent for which it was created. Blockchain is a shared, immutable, distributed ledger for recording transaction history. It is typically associated with the Bitcoin brand of digital currency, but it can be used for more than that. Download this informative report from a recent event titled "Blockchain Beyond Bitcoin: Transforming Government Security" to learn how some agencies such as the General Services Administration (GSA) have already reaped the benefits of a blockchain and other agencies such as the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are still testing the waters as they iron out key management and privacy issues.


Security Execs, It's Time We Had The Integrity Talk

By nature of its definition, true integrity allows for no variance between something’s established value and its current state. For security executives, the meaning—and role—of integrity has been somewhat difficult to pin down and even more challenging to manage. Originally, integrity, as defined in the SANS Institute’s CIA Triad, was narrowly focused on organizational data and making sure that data remained unchanged by external sources. It was one of three components—Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability—viewed as critical to identifying and mitigating risk to the data. Unfortunately, most organizations tend to invest heavily in tools and processes that enable confidentiality and availability, while integrity is the least addressed component. Learn how to make the change in your organization and the benefits in this informative report.
