ForeScout Government Solution Brief

The Challenge

Here's a small sampling of government agency data breaches:

  • Theft of Social Security numbers and other sensitive personal information from the computer systems of the U.S. Government Office of Personnel affected roughly 21.5 million people.
  • British Intelligence recently revealed that ISIS hackers intercepted top secret British Government emails and were targeting information held by some of Prime Minister David Cameron’s most senior advisors.
  • Hackers released data on 10,000 Department of Homeland Security employees and 20,000 FBI employees.

It’s no wonder government agencies the world over are urgently seeking advanced network security solutions. As cyberthreats increase in numbers and effectiveness, government agencies must rethink how to eliminate intrusions, protect sensitive information and mitigate exposure to cyberattacks.
