Asset Visibility and Security Solutions for the Public Sector

Every day, public sector organizations rely on IT infrastructure to support and power mission critical activities. However, the past few years have seen fundamental change. Continued migration to the cloud, the move to mobile and BYOD, the convergence of IT/OT/IoT, and the sharp increase in remote working have changed how the public sector must approach cybersecurity.

As the number of connected devices in the workplace grows, the IT and security tools previously relied on are becoming ineffective. Due to an explosion of endpoints, many public sector organizations experience a “visibility gap” where IT and security leaders can’t see all the vulnerable assets within their environment.

  • Discover and identify misconfigurations and coverage gaps in existing security products.
  • 90% of devices in enterprise environments are now unmanageable with legacy IT security solutions.
  • According to Microsoft’s 2021 Digital Defense Report, the government is one of the most targeted sectors, comprising 48% of nation-state threat activity.
