Securing Federal Networks

  • Federal agencies are faced with the challenge of real-time, continuous monitoring. Anomaly-based detection is help with this effort.
  • The line between data security and physical security is blurring, since identity management is at the core of physical and network access.
  • The Veterans Affairs Department is exploring a solution that would allow the IT team to bring computers up for security patches at night, and shut them back down afterward to save energy.
