Today’s Federal technology teams are faced with a perilous balancing act. On one side are bad actors trying to break through network security to wreak havoc on Federal systems and steal critical and sensitive data – or worse. On the other side is a growing remote or hybrid Federal workforce that increasingly requires seamless, secure access to government networks and assets from points located outside of the traditional physical security perimeter.
The reality is that breaches don’t have to be inevitable. To create a truly secure environment, cybersecurity needs to start at the beginning, when the user turns on their computer. This is the case in many safety-critical systems (consider airplane operating systems, medical devices, etc.). This same approach can deliver fully secure, remote access – including to classified networks.
