VMware Carbon Black Cloud (FedRAMP High) Next Generation Anti-Virus 

Being the victim of a cyberattack that leads to a data breach or disruption of service is a primary concern for federal agencies, with the quantity & quality of threat actors only continuing to grow. With the rise of ransomware and cyber warfare efforts, there’s a real need for federal agencies to find a way to combat cyberattacks to minimize the attack surface even as their perimeter widens.

In most cyberattacks, the real damage isn’t done in the initial breach, but rather when adversaries find a way to persist in the network and spread between systems. With the increased distribution of users, applications, and data centers around the world, traditional perimeter-centric models & tools are no longer an adequate defense strategy.

In the face of these threats, agencies need to take a new approach to cybersecurity that includes enhanced firewalling, integrated intrusion detection and prevention systems, and AI-driven remediation responses that allow you to truly protect the heart of your network.

With VMware Carbon Black Cloud’s recent FedRAMP authorization, this solution provides a great opportunity to consolidate multiple endpoint security solutions down to a single agent and console.

Register for our weekly demo to learn more about how VMware Carbon Black can help you protect your federal agency with the highest-caliber, next-gen cybersecurity on the market!

VMware NSX Security

Public sector agencies are constant targets for cyberattacks from all sides – individuals, activist groups, and even nation-state-level coordinated campaigns. The White House, seeing this, has published mandates that require government agencies to segment their networks, shrink their attack surface, minimize lateral threat proliferation, and reduce risk. 

VMware NSX Security gives agencies all the tools needed to segment and secure virtual and physical workloads without the need to alter the underlying physical networking. This solution allows agencies to create vNIC-level firewalls that intelligently block traffic by factoring in the application generating traffic, the identity of the user, the origin & destination network or IP address, and even virtualization-level context like VM names or tags. All this combined with hypervisor-level network virtualization gives agencies a tremendous level of granularity when it comes to network security. 

NSX now offers IDS/IPS functionality with the Advanced Threat Prevention offering, allowing for even more robust security. Easily and quickly identify anomalous network traffic with the Intrusion Detection/Prevention appliance and eliminate the need to hair-pin traffic to discrete appliances for analysis with VMware’s purpose-built lateral threat detection capability. 

Join our weekly demo to learn more about NSX Security and how it can be used to strengthening your network security posture.
