Internal Vulnerabilities

In "Heart of the Network: Data Center Defense," MeriTalk and Palo Alto Networks surveyed 300 Federal IT decision makers to examine the steps agencies take to keep data secure at each phase of the data center modernization journey – consolidation, virtualization, and cloud migration. The report found the most significant vulnerabilities included denial of service attacks (48 percent), non-public information (45 percent), agency network (44 percent), classified or protection information (39 percent) and system admin accounts (37 percent).

Cybersecurity threats are growing. To defend against increasing threats, agencies must comply with various cybersecurity mandates that often fail to take the user experience into account. According to a new MeriTalk report, "Federal Cyber Uncertainty – KVM XYZ," keyboard-video-mouse (KVM) switching devices may be the solution agencies need when looking for ways to enable productivity while ensuring air-tight seals between networks, protecting from both internal and external threats.

According to the MeriTalk report, delivered as an infographic and sponsored by Belkin Government, Federal managers still lack confidence in their ability to protect sensitive data and experience challenges when it comes to compliance with Federal mandates designed to improve cybersecurity.
