Multi-Domain Architecture, as noted in previous entries in this series, can provide for a robust and secure federal IT infrastructure when coupled with experienced IT partners like CTG Federal and Cisco. As a solution, Multi-Domain Architecture can enable IT and cyber operations across the board for federal agencies. Yet despite the potential benefits that can be gained, starting the process can be reasonably daunting at first glance.
This initial anxiety is unwarranted, instead, the process of adopting next-generation solutions can be both easy and painless, so long as agencies being by establishing what their challenges are and focusing on them.
Typically, one of the largest challenge facing federal agencies are silos which in turn can disrupt service delivery. While siloed, federal IT can experience a lack of visibility and their IT teams may struggle to gain a full grasp of what solutions are currently in place.
Additionally, with the digital transformation another challenge has begun to weigh heavily on federal IT: personal devices. With the advent of hybrid work and the mass adoption of the cloud, the scope of devices connecting to a federal agency’s network has increased substantially.
While these two issues may seem disparate, their solution is not. Utilizing a Multi-Domain Architecture can solve both challenges while enabling a more efficient and secure federal IT network. Additionally, it allows agencies to adapt to meet the needs of the future.
As a first step, federal IT professionals should start by gaining a holistic view of their entire network. With that understanding in hand, reaching out to an experienced IT partner like CTG Federal and Cisco, and discussing how to best align solutions and embrace zero trust, becomes a much simpler task.
