  • Continuous Monitoring: Elevating Cybersecurity in State and Local Government

    State and local agencies are not required to comply with federal policies related to continuous monitoring and NIST's Cybersecurity Framework, but they would be better off if they did. Whether it is required or not, the concept of continuous monitoring has been proven to raise the level of cybersecurity when implemented appropriately and with the right tools. Join this webcast to learn more about how your agency could benefit from continuous monitoring and NIST guidance.

  • All About Self-Encrypting Drives

    With data security risks on the rise, an influx of government mandates and regulations for securing data have been implemented and are becoming the norm. Eliminating exposure of private data is now simply viewed as a mandatory and sound business practice. To avoid the high costs associated with these types of data compromises, organizations must put in place a comprehensive security strategy. Read this whitepaper to learn how self-encryption is achieving this initiative.

  • The Rising Threat of Enterprise Cybercrime

    Cybercriminals are leveraging vulnerabilities of the Internet, browsers, operating systems, and applications to secretly and proficiently gain access to information assets. Compromising employee endpoints with malware has become the preferred method; a far simpler path into the network than a direct network attack. Agencies need to recognize and address this growing danger.
