By now, we’re all familiar with the challenges facing government CIOs and CISOs as they lead the defense of the nation’s cybersecurity. While budgetary issues and the vast array of threats occupy public discourse about cybersecurity challenges, one aspect that’s often overlooked is the ever increasing number of endpoint devices that are accessing the network and need to be both protected and defended against.
Traditional cybersecurity defenses are not well equipped to deal with endpoints that are on the go such as tablets and other mobile devices that define today’s workforce. Simply put, conventional methods rely on protecting authorized users from known threats and preventing unauthorized users from gaining access. In other words, security is a reactive perimeter activity when it should be proactive defense in depth.
By using the massive amount of information that government agencies already collect about their network via endpoint devices, agency IT leaders actually have all the information they need to create an effective defense of their people, processes, and technology.
