Enterprise Insight Analysis

Whether they are part of a business or working for a government organization, today’s investigators, security specialists and intelligence analysts are facing extraordinary pressure to respond quickly to a wide range of threats — from cyber attacks, terrorist threats, criminality, and unethical and immoral activities. These attacks are especially challenging as societies are increasing their reliance on cyberspace for economic growth, societal well-being, government operations and critical infrastructure monitoring and management. Concurrent with the increase in cyberspace reliance is an increase in cyberspace vulnerability. This vulnerability is amplified by an increasing frequency and complexity of attacks and highly variable, diverse and rapidly evolving threats. As such, there is a greater burden on organizations to respond in real time.

Bring Order to Hybrid Clouds

While many government agencies are choosing a hybrid cloud approach to realize the primary benefits of both private and public clouds, many are realizing additional benefits of opting for an open source-based hybrid cloud. A standard hybrid cloud still entails managing cloud software components from multiple vendors and ensuring all applications and data are properly integrated. When agencies take the open source-based approach, they can simplify migration to a hybrid cloud, while also realizing the agility and flexibility of open source.


Monitoring is a Security Essential

As government agencies migrate to the cloud, they are working to adhere to the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act, launched by the Office of Management and Budget in 2012 to improve federal network security.

CDM aims to improve security by watching round the clock for intrusions, vulnerabilities and other potentially malicious activity.


Open Source Drives the Agile Cloud

More government agencies are moving data and applications to the cloud. In doing so, the first major decision is choosing the best platform for the job: public, private or hybrid. Another option has been emerging of late—the open hybrid cloud. With open hybrid cloud platforms, government agencies are finding greater efficiency, flexibility and cost savings.
