Government computers and servers are a critical path to sensitive data and are central to operations. Malicious access and unauthorized changes to these systems can have a significant impact on an agency’s operations and, potentially, that of the country.

Read this use case for a real-world example of how a civilian government agency chose Palo Alto Networks Traps advanced endpoint protection to secure up to 10,000 workstations and servers and prevent ransomware attacks. In their evaluations, Traps performed better than both their existing antivirus and endpoint security products combined.

Government Use Case: Network Security Consolidation

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. Read this use case to discover • 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.
