Email Security that Meets Government Standards

Nation state actors, cyber criminals, hacktivists and other attackers continue to set their sights on government organizations. In 2017 alone, breaches were reported on the federal level at a major military branch, on the state level at a Division of Medicaid and Department of Motor Vehicles, and on the local level at a County Clerk’s Office and Hall of Justice – and unfortunately that’s not even the half of it.

The fact is that many of the traditional security solutions currently in use by government organizations simply cannot detect and prevent advanced email and other attacks such as zero-day exploits, malware hidden in attachments, malicious URLs and ransomware.

In our report, Email Security that Meets Government Standards, we take a deeper look at the email- and cloud-related cyber threats facing today’s government organizations, and we also explore how these entities stand to be affected in the event of a successful compromise. We then discuss how more than 900 federal, state and local government organizations are currently benefiting from FireEye solutions they have in place. Some of these benefits include:

  • Accurate detection and immediate blocking of advanced and targeted email-borne attacks, including spear phishing and ransomware, by products including FireEye Government Email Threat Prevention (ETP) – a FedRAMP-authorized email security service – and FireEye Email Security (EX Series).
  • Flexible deployment options, including FedRAMP-authorized solutions that help government organizations comply with FISMA requirements and NIST guidance. 

  • Data integrity with SOC II Type 2 Compliant Data Centers in the U.S. and Frankfurt, Germany.

The key takeaway here is that government organizations need to be prepared. Attackers are constantly on the prowl, and all it takes is one slip-up for a compromise to occur. Download the report, Email Security that Meets Government Standards, to help make sure your organization isn’t the next victim.
