Cybersecurity Solutions for Government

Attivo Networks Solutions for Government Entities

Gain comprehensive visibility to exposures and early in-network threat detection of insiders and external adversaries targeting state, local, federal government and military organizations, as well as educational institutions.

Overview

Cyber attacks are increasing in volume and effectiveness against federal, state and local governments, military organizations, and educational institutions. 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 Active Directory, in the cloud, or at remote locations.

Attivo identity security and deception technology provides government cybersecurity entities with early and accurate detection of in-network lateral attack activity, privilege escalation, 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.

Why Visibility, Prevention & Detection are Priorities for Government Agencies
