Government agencies face an increasingly dangerous threat environment. Hostile state actors are penetrating critical infrastructure systems owned and operated by government agencies at the national, state, and local level. Ransomware gangs are stealing government data of all types in breaches with remediation costs that have soared into the millions of dollars.
In response, the federal government has taken the lead in mandating adoption of Zero Trust architectures and multi-factor authentication (MFA) for federal agencies:
State and local government agencies also need to adopt Zero Trust. The coronavirus pandemic and sudden shift to remote work has exposed critical systems to the cloud and breaches using stolen credentials. But even if user access to cloud apps is secured with MFA, how are agencies to protect their on-prem and air-gapped systems?
SurePassID Universal MFA enables government agencies to secure user access to sensitive systems and data no matter where they live – on-prem, in the cloud, or in hybrid deployments. Our highly secure, highly extensible solutions enable any agency, from small municipal utilities to the largest federal bureaucracies, to leverage the inherent security of on-prem and air-gapped environments.
