The federal government has their own unique challenges when it comes to network security. After all, their agencies house highly sensitive, mission critical information that absolutely must be secured. The cybersecurity needs of federal agencies will only continue to increase, as hackers, both criminals and adversary national states, have the resources and desire to wreak havoc in government networks.
Government agencies also must deal with budgetary constraints, which may not allow for the all of the security tools desired to combat cybersecurity threats, resulting in a need to do more with less. But by taking a proactive approach to cybersecurity, focusing on real-time data collection, threat assessment, and intrusion prevention, agencies can better identify threats and establish policies to mitigate the damage they do.
It all starts with complete network visibility. Creating end-to-end visibility eliminates dangerous blind spots. Utilizing Network TAPs and packet brokers at the physical layer ensures 100% packet capture, which then allows the tools you deploy in your security stack to have the visibility necessary to monitor, protect, block and analyze traffic in real time, all the time.

All of the new regulations and standards guiding the transition to Zero Trust can be overwhelming for IT leaders tasked with upgrading highly complex government networks. This white paper explores current tactics for federal agencies to achieve cybersecurity maturity in accordance with federal programs like the DHS Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM).
