As Governments adopt digital technologies – employee remote access, citizen self-service, SaaS, cloud, and more – these same technologies introduce new points where the network can be infiltrated, and new valuable data that must be secured. The result was a cyber security arms race where new threats were countered with new security point products.
Today, governments are consolidating security appliances and functions to gain better visibility and use scarce cybersecurity professionals wisely.

• The advantages of a platform approach to network security consolidation.
• Best practices for deployment.
• How a government agency eliminated 10 security appliances at every location, simplifying compliance, management and reporting while improving security.
To gain, maintain, and expand competitive advantage over adversaries in a new digital operating environment, SOCs must be capable of seamlessly employing, integrating, and automating its capabilities across all environments and in any domain.
Learn about how the Federal Government faces unique challenges regarding Zero Trust that commercial entities do not. While cybersecurity programs within the Federal Government are more mature and provide significant capability, many do not ad- dress the issue of inherit trust. Due to this, Zero Trust has gained momentum across the Federal Government.
This guide outlines the challenges Defense agencies face and methods they can use to integrate the Palo Alto Networks ecosystem into the Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA) to fight modern threats, meet current and future security objectives, and improve cyber resilience and operations.
The federal governments will use cloud as a new foundation to build more effective security capabilities across domains - including cyberspace. An explosion of government adoption of public, private, hybrid, and cloud services have introduced new ways to scale and deliver efficient operations across multiple cloud platforms. As federal agencies continue to transition and expand their footprint into the cloud, it is critical to ensure these systems are secure and vulnerabilities are addressed immediately.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-190 provides guidance on securing application containers and related ecosystem components. While it thoroughly describes the security risks and associated countermeasures for protecting containerized apps, it leaves organizations to fend for themselves on the tactical front. Twistlock is a purpose-built software suite for securing cloud-native workloads. From the beginning, we’ve been developing technology to address the types of risks NIST SP 800-190 describes.
Through network security consolidation, government agencies can achieve tighter
integration between previously disparate systems while automating and simplifying
the process for responding to and preventing malicious activity.
A strong cyber defense, agile to the needs of governments globally as well as to adversaries’ tactics and tool changes, is germane to the future. Palo Alto Networks meets the cybersecurity needs of its government customers by providing a future-proof platform with visibility, prevention and resilience – from the endpoint to the heart of the network, data center and cloud – and for all threat types for IT and OT networks.
This paper highlights an innovative security approach that eliminates the wide range of cloud risks that can cause breaches, while enabling organizations to achieve consistent and frictionless cloud protections for multi-cloud environments.
Growing amounts of SSL/TLS encrypted traffic can be hiding threats. Decrypting and inspecting encrypted traffic can add latency, costs and management overhead. Read how this federal agency chose Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls to decrypt traffic inline and whitelist applications, reducing risk, increasing performance and simplifying security management.
