Our extensive government data security experience allows us to provide one of the most broad data protection portfolios specifically focused on U.S. Federal agency requirements for protecting mission critical data in data centres, cloud environments and field deployments. Our product portfolio includes:
Insider-implemented breaches, such as those by Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning can not only severely cripple the ability of Federal agencies to achieve their objectives, but can also have a chilling effect on Federal professional and administrative careers.
While insider threats persist, external threats are becoming more menacing and sophisticated. Advanced persistent threats, or APTs, blur the line between insider and external threats by allowing external adversaries to steal the user credentials required to bypass perimeter defences and act as insiders. Due to their sophistication and required resources, APTs are often attributed to nation-states and other highly organised entities.
As cybersecurity threats have proliferated and computer technology has advanced, government data security compliance has become increasingly complex.
The government mandates encryption, and major government security compliance regulations such as FISMA, NIST 800-53, FIPS (up to level 3), and Common Criteria need to be part of the any government data-security solution. And, as data moves to the cloud, government agencies need to comply with FedRAMP. Finally, depending on the government agency, HIPAA-HITECH and PCI DSS may also be important.
Thales government data security solutions address all these issues and truly secure sensitive data for federal government agencies working in the Civilian, defence and Intelligence sectors through enabling an enterprise-level data at rest security strategy that is:

The sensitive nature of much of the data held by local and central government agencies places a greater-than-average emphasis on effective cyber-security.
National governments around the world and many of their member states and local jurisdictions have enacted laws regulating the data security of the personal, strategic and other sensitive data these governments hold.
State and local government agencies in the US rely on sensitive information stored in databases and file servers to process applications that enable essential services.
