Whether your agency is tasked with defense or providing healthcare, telework is now an essential part of your mission’s success. Taking advantage of cloud applications and mobility, your employees can now stay productive regardless of where they are or the type of device they use. But to capture this boosted productivity, you need to ensure you provide seamless but secure access to your infrastructure.
Telework uncovered previously untapped productivity but it also exposes your agency to new risks. With workers often using personal devices and networks you don’t manage, you no longer have the same visibility and control you had inside your perimeter. Advanced threat actors already have the resources to put themselves miles ahead of government agencies. Now, they have new points into your infrastructure.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recommends deploying Zero Trust. With users now working from anywhere and your data follows them, this means security needs to span from the endpoint all the way to your cloud applications.
