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.
