Zero Trust illustration

Take the Zero Trust Approach

Zero trust has become a major focus area for the U.S. government in the last few years. An executive order issued by President Biden in May 2021 included the use of zero-trust architecture to strengthen federal government computer systems and networks.

Sophos Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) removes implicit trust from your applications, end-users, and devices and allows you to segment access across your systems and resources. It constantly validates your users, devices, and policy compliance before granting access to your applications and data.

With Sophos ZTNA, you can use a single-agent, single-console, single-vendor solution for both ZTNA and your next-gen endpoint protection. Sophos ZTNA integrates with Sophos Intercept X, and they constantly share status and health information with each other to automatically isolate compromised systems and prevent threats from moving across your systems and stealing your data.

Secure Your Multi-Cloud Environments

Government organizations are rapidly adopting the cloud and implementing multi-cloud infrastructure with workloads spread across multiple public, private, and edge cloud platforms. This makes it more complex than ever before to maintain visibility and control over users, applications, and data.

Sophos Cloud Native Security provides complete multi-cloud security coverage across your environments, workloads, and identities. It offers flexible host and container workload security for Windows and Linux to protect your cloud infrastructure and data . Our multi-layered technologies protect against ransomware and other advanced attacks and identify threats such as container escapes, kernel exploits, and privilege-escalation attempts.


Meet Your Compliance Reporting Requirements

Government organizations must adhere to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework and other regulations. But, a lack of skilled IT and financial resources can make it tough to create compliance reports and demonstrate compliance.

Sophos Central provides flexible reporting tools so you can visualize your network activities and security. It offers built-in compliance reports and easy-to-use tools for creating custom reports.

Sophos Encryption lets you verify your encryption status and show you are complying with regulations. It is especially useful in cases where your devices are lost or stolen and you need to prove that these missing devices are encrypted.
