Government

Maintain situational awareness, address internal and external cyber security threats, and adhere to compliance mandates.

Reduce Risk with Visibility, Awareness and Control

Considering the unrelenting cybersecurity threats faced by organizations everywhere, and many global political uncertainties, government departments and agencies have to be more vigilant and proactive than ever before. At the same time, the compliance requirements that government agencies must meet for security change with almost every administration. From CDM to FISMA-NIST, there are always new requirements that agencies and departments must anticipate, implement and report against. BeyondTrust enables you to maintain both the security and compliance of federal IT resources with expansive visibility, awareness and control across all attack surfaces.

Privilege and Vulnerability Management Solutions for Government

Incorporate the Cybersecurity Strategy and Implementation Plan Directives with Ease

The results of the US Federal CIO’s 30-Day Cybersprint and Cybersecurity Strategy and Implementation plan (CSIP) identified several deficiencies in processes for monitoring and protecting high value assets and sensitive information. In order to mitigate the findings, Agencies need to protect high-value assets (HVA) from unauthorized access with a solution that empowers IT and security teams to:

  • Improve accountability and control over privileged passwords
  • Leverage asset vulnerability information to help determine access
  • Enforce least privilege and application control for all servers and desktops
  • Eliminate root on Unix and Linux
  • Bridge Unix and Linux systems into Active Directory (AD)
  • Reduce risk through integrated threat analytics

Safeguard Your Infrastructure with Comprehensive Auditing and Mitigation Solutions

Strengthening the cybersecurity of federal networks, systems and data is one of the most important challenges facing government agencies. The government has taken a number of critical steps recently to protect information security assets, such as the implementation of the Continuous Diagnostic and Mitigation (CDM) program. BeyondTrust’s IT Risk Management Platform helps agencies realize CDM goals and achieve mission objectives by:

  • Addressing critical functional areas of the CDM program related to endpoint integrity, least-privilege access, and infrastructure integrity
  • Offering comprehensive visibility into risk by correlating privileged access and vulnerability data into a single pane of glass
  • Delivering a single platform for both privileged account management and vulnerability management
  • Read the white paper: Addressing Continuous Diagnostics & Mitigation (CDM) Program Requirements

    Achieve Compliance Over Privileged Users and Assets Using the NIST Framework

    The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) revised its controls to include new security control and control enhancements addressing issues related to:

  • The range of advanced persistent threats
  • Inside threats
  • App security
  • Mobile and cloud computing
  • Supply chain issues
  • Distributed systems
  • BeyondTrust’s privileged access management and vulnerability management solutions address several of the security and privacy control families in the latest SP-800 53 Rev. 4 publication.

    Protect Your DoD IT Networks From Known (and Unknown) Threats

    In September 2015, the Secretary of Defense and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff published a document in which they identified several key cyber security requirements that all agencies must address in order to improve the resilience of the Department of Defense (DoD) IT networks. One of the outcomes was the Cybersecurity Discipline Implementation plan.

    The plan identifies four Lines of Effort, each representing a prioritization of all the DoD’s cyber security requirements:

    1. Strong authentication - to degrade the adversaries' ability to maneuver on DoD information networks;
    2. Device hardening - to reduce internal and external attack vectors into DoD information networks;
    3. Reduce attack surface - to reduce external attack vectors into DoD information networks; and
    4. Alignment to cybersecurity / computer network defense service providers - to improve detection of and response to adversary activity

    Embrace Cloud-First and Ensure You’re Protected

    In December 2010, the U.S. Chief Information Officer (CIO) released “A 25-Point Implementation Plan to Reform Federal IT Management” as part of a comprehensive effort to increase the operational efficiency of federal technology assets. One element of the 25-Point Plan is for agencies to shift to a “Cloud-First” policy, which is being implemented through the Federal Cloud Computing Strategy. With Cloud-First, agencies can implement cloud-based IT solutions whenever a reliable, cost-effective option exists and to modify their IT budget to include cloud options wherever possible.

    BeyondTrust solutions can protect your IT infrastructure, whether your infrastructure consists of a datacenter, the cloud, or a combination of both. Our vulnerability management solution provides agencies with zero-gap coverage for diverse and hybrid environments. Your IT security team can discover and assess any IT resource in your organization, cloud or on premise, with agentless and agent-based scanning that protects your high value assets, whether they are connected to your network or not.

    Implement ICAM with Confidence

    The Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD 12) established the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card as the de facto standard credential for federal employees and contractors for access to federal information systems and federally controlled facilities. With the PIV card, agencies can implement and enforce strong authentication as part of its identity credential and access management (ICAM) initiatives.

    BeyondTrust IT Risk Management platform includes solutions for privileged access management that:

  • Secure and automate the process for discovering, managing and cycling privileged account passwords and SSH keys
  • Control how people, services, applications and scripts access credentials
  • Auto-logon users onto RDP and SSH sessions, without revealing the passwords
  • Record all user and administrator activity in a comprehensive audit trail
  • Alert in real-time as passwords are released and privileged session activity is started
  • The BeyondTrust platform offers multiple deployment options with broad and adaptive support for devices including PIV cards. Read about how to enforce CAC and PIV Cards with PowerBroker.
