Valeo Networks Secures Government Organizations’ Computer Systems
CYBERCRIMINALS ARE TARGETING
Every day, nation-states and cybercriminals step up their attacks on American institutions, and agencies like yours are in their crosshairs. No one is immune to hackers and their sophisticated methods of attack — phishing, malware and ransomware. You need to build a strong defense against these cyber threats, a challenge for any organization working with limited resources and a restrictive budget. Valeo Networks can help secure your agency’s data and keep your systems up and running by providing the most robust in-depth cyber defenses available today. With the proven cybersecurity tools and technologies, Valeo Networks can assist even budget-constrained government organizations in hardening their computer system defenses to protect vital records and information from dangerous intrusions.
Cloud Meets Compliance
A growing number of agencies and local governments are moving their data to the cloud, consolidating data centers to streamline application hosting and management. In fact, state and local entities have outpaced their federal counterparts in cloud migration. Global research firm Gartner predicts a 17.1 percent average growth rate per year through 2021 in government use of public cloud services. If concerns over compliance with federal and state reporting regulations have stopped your agency from moving data to the cloud, Valeo Networks can steer you to secure services that will address your needs while satisfying regulatory standards. For example, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) meet or exceed the critical standards for data storage and government applications required by Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS).
Free Compliance Consultation
If your agency is concerned about meeting the requirements of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) or the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Valeo Networks can perform a risk assessment and review your current data protection policies and procedures. Valeo Networks can also make recommendations on implementing a privacy and security plan.
Compliance with National Institute of Standards and Technology
Valeo Networks has been National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-171 compliant since December 2017. Achieving NIST 800-171 compliance requires diving deep into networks and procedures to address appropriate security policies. Valeo Networks continues to evaluate its networks, procedures and processes to ensure we maintain compliance. Obtaining this compliance means that Valeo Networks values its security and that of its customers.
An estimated 4,000 ransomware attacks occur every day targeting individuals and organizations, including government entities. Every local and state government agency should have a robust disaster recovery and data protection plan in place to deal with aggressive cybercriminal attacks and unexpected natural disasters.
One well-known local government intrusion happened when cybercriminals attacked the city of Atlanta with SamSam ransomware in March 2018. The City spent more than $5 million to rebuild its computer network and another $2.7 million went to emergency consultants and crisis managers, according to Statescoop. It is much less costly for government organizations to proactively strengthen their cybersecurity defenses upfront, particularly when compared to the expenses that can be incurred in the aftermath of an attack.
Leveraging next-gen technology such a SIEM/SOC Monitoring as a Service (MaaS) and Web Application Firewalls (WAF), Valeo Networks can help identify, halt and remediate cyberattacks with an industry-leading 15-minute cyber event notification service level agreement (SLA).
It’s not uncommon for small to midsize government agencies to be overburdened as they try to respond to a range of IT challenges — legacy systems, licensing and contracts issues, fragmented IT infrastructure, and increasing numbers of sites and devices — all without the benefit of an IT staff who are prepared for the latest issues that arise.
