Trusted and Inherent Security for the U.S. Federal Government

Solving the Cybersecurity Challenges of Federal Agencies

Fortinet U.S. Federal Agency Security Solution

With the introduction of cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), and other emerging technologies, the federal government’s digital footprint is growing at an exponential rate. But as the amount of data continues to increase, so do the number of adversaries and vulnerabilities in the government’s networks.  As prime targets for the most sophisticated adversaries seeking to impact national security, public safety, and civilian services, federal government agencies require the most effective and comprehensive cybersecurity solutions available—while maintaining high-performance. At the same time, they must work within mandated budget contraints, incorporate advancing technology, and remain open to interfacing with the citizens they serve.
