Local Government Use Case: Transition to a Cybersecurity Platform to Improve Effectiveness and Efficiency PDF

As new digital technologies or threats emerge, the traditional approach has been to add new, discrete security appliances and solutions to the network and its elements. As security products proliferate, so do costs and operational complexity, while network and security teams struggle to get a comprehensive view of traffic and potential threats. Read a real-world example of how a local government adopted elements of the Security Operating Platform over time, and how the platform approach helps them  prevent 1M threats a month from impacting city operations.
