Government

Government information should be available to the public at all times. Rapid access, quick response times and the highest service levels are a necessity. However, as government department and agency networks are opened up for inter-departmental information exchange and public access, communications must be fully secured. Above all, service continuity is a prerequisite to enable information sharing.

Protection

Information leaks are unacceptable, let alone when they involve confidential data. A multi-layer approach ensures protection at the network level provides controls on data access from the working environment and guards the application layers against unauthorized intrusion.

All governments demand the highest levels of security for both critical networks and sensitive data

The NETASQ intrusion prevention engine is based on more than 10 years of research. It incorporates the latest technologies and uses a number of different analyses to deliver enhanced levels of security. Its protocol analysis and signature protection work together to ensure proactive defense against attack, by uniquely incorporating intrusion protection with Zero-Day Unified Threat Management.

This, coupled with antivirus protection combining heuristic analysis and a base of antivirus signatures, ensures NETASQ solutions provide total protection for any organization.
