Ensure The Security of Government Information and Maximize Public Sector Productivity

Perhaps no other type of organization is under more frequent and sophisticated attack than government agencies. While you have a modern mobile workforce, you are entrusted with the some of the most sensitive data. The sheer quantity of which is staggering including Social Security numbers, credit card data, criminal records, and even personal health data. Encryption is just not enough to protect this data today.

Tasked with meeting compliance challenges in a complex regulatory environment, including increasingly high settlement fees for data breaches, government IT organizations must be good stewards of the information they’re charged with protecting that flows through government agencies.

Traditional controls are easily compromised by nation-state attackers, hacktivists, insider threats and other malicious actors. But you must also deal with potential physical threats such as device loss or theft and illegitimate access to sensitive information. A data breach could be devastating – from reputation issues and escalating security vulnerabilities to compliance-related consequences. Without the IT staff or resources to keep up, it’s a matter of finding a way to fill in the gaps.
