Government Cybersecurity

Protecting federal, state, and local agency networks and data​

The challenges of defending public sector data

Threats to network

Cyberthreats are constantly evolving, and adversary tactics are more sophisticated than ever. Protecting government data in networks that are completely disconnected from the internet present a unique set of challenges for teams who need visibility into network activity.

Resource constraints

Insufficient cybersecurity funding and skills shortages are a burden for government security teams. Organizations in the public sector are facing frequent turnover and causing teams to spend more time training new staff than on the mission at hand.

Strict compliance mandates

Federal and SLED government cybersecurity standards are becoming more complex and increasingly stringent. Meeting and maintaining regulatory compliance add overhead on top of the core responsibilities of a team’s critical mission.

A SIEM that serves the mission of the public sector

“America’s economic prosperity, national security, and our individual liberties depend on our commitment to securing cyberspace and maintaining an open, interoperable, secure, and reliable Internet.” – Former President Obama.

A strong cyber defense has an impact on every agency’s mission success. Unfortunately, high levels of complexity combined with a shortage of skilled people can prevent your team from focusing on the mission at hand. DoD, civilian, and state agencies must simplify and strengthen their approach to cybersecurity. LogRhythm can help.

We’ve created a platform that your security analysts will actually like using that allows them to respond to threats in real-time. Our LogRhythm SIEM Platform incorporates fundamental security tools and capabilities into one solution — unlike other disparate solutions that require you to purchase and implement them, individually.

Focus on key threats

The LogRhythm SIEM Platform helps you power your security operations center (SOC) to focus on key threats, reducing your team’s risk and protecting mission critical data.

Get visibility to the most advanced threats

LogRhythm attains full visibility by aggregating log and machine data with network and endpoint data. When a threat is detected, analysts can quickly qualify and investigate it using rich forensic data.

Securing environments in the public sector comes with unique challenges and regulations. We’ve compiled a collection of resources to help you stay a step ahead.

Federal sector cybersecurity

Your team needs to collect, archive, and recover logs across your entire infrastructure to meet many of the DoDI 8500.2 guidelines.

LogRhythm SIEM helps your team effectively monitor log data applicable to DoDI control guidelines while reducing the cost to meet others. Your team can automate DoDI 8500.2-specific reports helping you meet reporting needs easier.

State/Local government and education (SLED) cybersecurity

Many state agencies have invested in overly complex security infrastructure that making quick threat almost impossible. These security tools often do not integrate or share information creating even more security gaps.

LogRhythm SIEM unifies these tools by aggregating data — delivering a full picture of security events right to your analysts.

A better way to combat government cybersecurity threats

Federal, state and local governments are dealing with an increasing number of advanced persistent threats (APTs). Threat actors target government agencies for many reasons, including ideological beliefs, financial gains, proprietary information, influence elections, and much more. Traditional tools fail to keep up with the scale and complexity of APTs, lacking proper visibility, detection, and response capabilities needed to stop advanced nation-state attacks before it’s too late.

Don’t let cyberthreats stop you from accomplishing your designated missions. Maximize your security intelligence by getting visibility into all parts of your network – including non-log generating devices/sources – while simplifying the SOC experience so your analysts can respond to threats faster.

With LogRhythm, you can let technology do the heavy lifting, so your team can work smarter, not harder.
