Network devices, servers, cloud systems are a critical and indispensable part of any government or military organization. These systems support a real-time information fabric, necessary for their ongoing missions and operations.
Today, more than ever, government agencies need to provide a higher level of cyber defenses, particularly against the constant nation state cyber-attacks. Government entities rely heavily on the integrity and performance of their online services to carry out their agency’s missions and operations. The protection of these systems and data is essential to preventing disruptions of regular operations, and more importantly, to secure against any type of data loss.
The relentless nature of daily security threats that governments worldwide face – general Internet malware, targeted attacks, never-ending network probes, denial of service attacks, etc. – has led to the deployment of a complicated mass of security solutions (IDS, IPS, Firewalls, Antivirus, Web filters, Patching Systems, etc.), each of which need to be maintained, updated, tuned and supported.
Despite these current defense-in-depth approaches, system breaches still occur. Simply relying on existing security measures is pointless. Invisinet offers a new approach – that new approach starts at the connection to the Internet itself.
Unique Solution Value
Invisinet Transport Access Control (TAC) acts as a liaison between the chaos of the Internet and a government agency’s network, masking all protected assets and preventing all unapproved traffic from even knocking on the network’s front door. Unlike other security controls, the decision to allow a connection happens on the very first packet. The result is an immediate and tangible reduction in the malicious, unwanted traffic that pose the bulk of cyber threats today. Only pre-authorized, authenticated connections are allowed, all of which are managed via a highly scalable and secure provisioning system. Government agencies can now operate with confidence that their online services will be available, with their information protected – system-wide. This is especially true for intra-agency communications; dedicated Invisinet deployments can create secure bridges between agencies, with little to no maintenance required.
The benefits from this deterministic level of protection spans from headquarters to the field, including the Internet of Things. Invisinet ensures critical communication channels and processes remain open with integrity while protecting the information government agencies rely upon.
Invisinet also provides a new approach to high assurance micro-segmentation and cloud security and can help to protect against the advanced persistent threats that government agencies face every day. DoD and Civilian Agencies benefit from the broad applicability of our products and technology, including:
- Real-time protection with no unauthorized awareness of systems and networks – you can’t attack what you can’t see.
- Real-time logging of all policy actions with identity attribution, for the earliest possible detection of attacks, and for forensics and compliance reporting.
- DDoS protection and higher performing networks and systems as a result of the excess traffic is filtered out.
