Cybersecurity Solutions for Government

Attivo Networks Solutions for Government Entities

Gain early in-network threat detection of insiders and external adversaries targeting military operations and federal, state and local government organizations.

Overview

Government cyber attacks are increasing in volume and effectiveness against military organizations, federal, state and local governments. Traditional network defenses have focused on preventing intrusions, but attackers continue to evade them.

Protecting against these attacks requires an increase in federal cybersecurity - extensive visibility into in-network attack activity across attack surfaces, whether on-premises, in the cloud, or at remote locations.

In addition, threat deception technology provides federal government cybersecurity entities with early and accurate detection of in-network threats and the ability to respond to them quickly and decisively. Recognizing the importance of deploying deception to protect critical information, the National Institute of Standards and Technology has included it in SP 800-53, SP 800-160 and the draft for 800-172.
