Why Zero Trust is a Public Sector Must-Have

Public sector agencies are embracing zero trust as a counter to today's cyber risks. Read this guide to learn what you gain from a zero trust posture.

Stay Compliant with New Federal Requirements

The United States Office of Management and Budget released government-wide actions and responsibilities for critical software use on August 10, 2021 mandating agencies to define their privileged access management (PAM) strategy to align with the Executive Order and keep pace with evolving threats.

BeyondTrust is ready to support public and private sector organizations on this journey.

Public Sector: Whitepapers & Essential Reading

BeyondTrust for Operational Technology (OT) Security

Today, operational technologies and traditional IT networks interact heavily with one another, allowing remote control and access to OT systems. This may increase efficiency, but comes at a heavy cybersecurity cost.

Several experts in the field recently sat down to discuss the growing OT/IT convergence challenge, possible solutions, and recommendations for the future. Read this whitepaper to discover key points from this discussion.

BeyondTrust for Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) Architecture

Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) is the set of tools, policies, and systems that Federal and DoD agencies use to enable the right individual to access the right resource, at the right time, for the right reason in support of critical mission objectives.

BeyondTrust’s Universal Privilege Management solutions secure and protect privileges across passwords, endpoints, access, and identities, giving agencies the visibility and control they need to always verify, apply least privilege, achieve compliance, and boost operational performance. Read the whitepaper to learn how.

Mapping BeyondTrust Capabilities to NIST SP 800-207

Zero trust assumes there is no implicit trust granted to assets or user accounts based solely on their physical or network location (i.e., local area networks versus the internet) or based on asset ownership (enterprise or personally owned). Authentication and authorization (both subject and device) are discrete functions performed before a session to an enterprise resource is established.

Read this whitepaper to learn how BeyondTrust Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions map into guidelines set forth in the NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-2017 on Zero Trust Architecture.

BeyondTrust for Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Phases

According to The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), The Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Program provides a dynamic approach to fortifying the cybersecurity of government networks and systems. The CDM Program delivers cybersecurity tools, integration services, and dashboards that help participating agencies improve their security posture.

BeyondTrust provides a unique set of integrated solutions to address a wide range of architectures, including CDM, enabling agencies to achieve Zero Trust security goals. Read this whitepaper for the full mapping of our solutions to the CDM phases.

Achieving NIST SP800-53 Compliance with BeyondTrust

NIST Special Publication 800-53 provides a catalog of security controls for all U.S. federal information systems except those related to national security. The purpose of the NIST 800-53 is to provide guidelines and best practices for protecting the government’s sensitive information and the personal information of citizens from cyberattacks. This special publication is authored by the Joint Task Force.

In this whitepaper, we highlight some of the key NIST control families and explain how BeyondTrust PAM solutions enable you to meet the requirements.

Unique to BeyondTrust: FIPS Level 1 Validation

Government agencies, and private sector organizations that support these agencies, can have confidence that BeyondTrust Remote Support and BeyondTrust Privileged Remote Access have met the rigorous requirements of FIPS 140-2 Level 1. BeyondTrust is the only remote support and privileged remote access solution available with this certification, enabling organizations to meet these extensive compliance requirements.

Comparing GDPR TO U.S. State Compliance Regulations (CCPA & NY SHIELD Act)

While GDPR applies to all countries in the European Union, there is not a similar comprehensive mandate in the United States. In the US, organizations are subject to a variety of compliance mandates that depend on industry, location, and other factors.

Read this paper for a comparison of GDPR, CCPA, and NY SHIELD Act, and also to learn about how BeyondTrust privileged access management solutions can help support your compliance initiatives.

Achieve Zero Trust Security Goals with BeyondTrust

A zero trust security posture reduces the threat surface and minimizes the threat windows during which attackers can inflict damage, helping to protect against everything from simple malware to advanced persistent threats.

Read our latest Zero Trust research report, Advancing Zero Trust with Privileged Access Management (PAM) to learn how to deliver identity-centric security that secures against both external and internal threats and stands at the core of a public sector zero trust strategy.

“We needed to find a tool to enable remote work as effectively, securely and quickly as possible, to be able to facilitate the critical business of government.”
