Honorably Serving Our Veterans Wherever the Mission Goes

Posted by Mehul Patel on Nov 2, 2020

The VA Has an Opportunity to Rethink Its Cybersecurity Posture in the New Normal with Cloud Web Isolation.

Covid-19 and its impact have pushed federal workers out from behind the firewall to the edge of the network in home offices. Fortunately, the Department of Veterans Affairs had already embarked on an aggressive IT modernization initiative—providing the framework for making sure remote workers have fast and consistent access to the tools and information they need, wherever the mission takes them.

Safeguarding Our Health Information in a Global Pandemic

Posted by Mehul Patel on Oct 20, 2020

HHS Can Use Cloud Web Isolation to Stop Cybersecurity Threats without Impacting Productivity.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been on the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic, working with other federal departments to coordinate national policy and responses to address the public health crisis. However, just as in enterprises around the world, HHS has had to deal with shelter-in-place orders and work-from-home policies that have scattered users out from behind the data security perimeter to home offices. The ability of employees to log in to critical systems in the middle of a global pandemic is mission critical and a national security priority, but the department’s systems and the data that powers them need to continue to be secured without impacting business continuity or the native user experience.

Posted by Mehul Patel on Oct 16, 2020

Government Agencies Need to Rethink How They Provide Fast and Reliable—Yet Secure—Access to Remote Users.

Covid-19 and the resulting fallout has laid bare the inefficiencies of government and a failure to address these issues with existing digital transformation initiatives, according to a new report published by Gartner. These inefficiencies, the report said, is undermining the productivity of the federal workforce at a time when agencies dealing with the pandemic, the government response, and economic recovery need to react quickly to fast-changing conditions with organizational agility.

Build a Security Approach that Is Integrated, Simple, and Cloud Delivered

Last month I had the absolute pleasure of chatting with Kenny Yeo, a cybersecurity analyst from Frost and Sullivan and one of the leading security experts in the Asia Pacific region. Kenny and I locked horns during a conference recently, and we started sharing notes on how SaaS security has evolved. It turned into quite an interesting conversation, so I wanted to get his take on recent network and security shifts that are impacting companies.

Introducing cloud-based data loss prevention with Menlo Security

 

Safeguarding Internet access is a significant problem for most businesses. In a recent Verizon Study, 6.2 percent of all data breaches result from browser-based attacks.

What is of particular importance is that 90% of these Menlo Security customers are isolating ALL of their web traffic, which unlocks isolation’s full potential. So why is this significant?
