Reliable data backup remains critical: Ransomware, malware threats still lurk in remote work environment

As government employees transitioned to working from home, the number of endpoints and attack surfaces increased exponentially—and so did vulnerability. The importance of reliable, secure backup became clearer than ever. Secure backup remains a major challenge for many agencies. In this whitepaper, learn about what works and what doesn't work, so that your agency can lay down a foundation for future security.


Highly Scalable HCI Enables Mission Readiness for Large Defense Agency

A large Department of Defense (DoD) agency responsible for supporting the logistics and sustainability of a global operating force aims to further ensure mission readiness by implementing a highly flexible hybrid cloud environment. With locations across all 50 states and in more than 150 countries, the agency needed an agile solution that included application delivery, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), on-premises/cloud storage, and multitenancy capabilities at extreme scale. By taking complete control of their data assets and their enterprise IT infrastructure, this future-focused agency is ensuring that their global workforce will be ready for any contingency that may occur. With NetApp’s HCI Cloud Suite, the agency will experience a scalable cloud which will accelerate their ability to achieve their mission and support their users around the globe.

Implementing the Core Elements of a Zero Trust Architecture

U.S. Federal Government agencies are adopting cloud-based applications and services to accelerate the pace of innovation, simplify operations, and improve mobility. Malicious insiders or external attackers can breach the perimeter, gain access to the trusted enterprise network, and move laterally to steal data or wreak havoc. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-207 defines a new zero trust architecture (ZTA) for the digital era. CyberArk identity security solutions are based on the principle of Zero Trust and can be used in a variety of SP 800 207 deployment scenarios. Government agencies and private-sector enterprises can implement various CyberArk solutions as ZTA core logical components to help satisfy the key tenets of Zero Trust laid out in the NIST publication.


Your Cloud Is Only as Good as the Data You Put in It

As agencies focus on modernization and moving applications and processes to the cloud, it can be easy to overlook the old “garbage in, garbage out” truism. Legacy systems and unstructured data will not magically become a better experience once they are moved to the cloud. A focus on discovering, prioritizing and cleaning the data before you move it is an essential best practice to begin achieving the digital transformation that agencies need for their modernization projects. Once in the cloud, data access and visibility across the environment while integrating and preparing that data for analytics and dashboards is another best practice. Learn how other Defense agencies dealt with legacy systems and asset tracking and worldwide inventory by starting with the data.


Build a Test and Evaluation Plan with Advanced Fuzz Testing

Organizations leverage an intricate supply chain to source chunks of code or whole applications as the building blocks for their software. Sourcing from the cyber supply chain makes sense. Why recreate code that exists and is even available for free? Free, however, is rarely truly free. Download to learn how agencies can tackle the complex issues that stems from today’s software supply chain by leveraging a proven process known as “Test and Evaluation” and an advanced testing technique known as fuzzing or fuzz testing.


Harness the Power of AI and Machine Learning

The demand for data and analytics is growing exponentially, and legacy technologies cannot keep pace. In fact, many organizations struggle with a proliferation of data warehouses and a shortage of data science talent. Download this resource to learn how you can harness the power of AI and machine learning to turn surplus into valuable business insights.
