Government Use Case: Protect Endpoints

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.
