The View From NCS Technologies

SecureView Preferred for Government Security

Posted by Katie Callahan on Aug 14, 2018 1:47:30 PM

The Preferred Way to Protect Government Data

State sponsored cyber attacks on American networks and endpoints is both in the news and a daily fact of life. For government employees, processes to thwart security threats include strategies to protect databases and servers in data centers, locking down endpoints (like laptops and notebooks), and educating employees about everyday social engineering threats (clicking on destructive malware on a website or answering a malicious email).

Security officials give special attention to securing everyday network communications. To keep daily work communications private and secure, government workers access various levels of secure networks. Depending on need, workers may access different levels of communications security each day. This is referred to as multi-level computing.

NCS Is a Leader in Government SecureView Implementations

Posted by Katie Callahan on Jul 20, 2018 12:16:47 PM

The Preferred Way to Protect Government Data

It previous blogs concerning government security challenges, we have noted how the issue is extremely complex. Planning for security threats includes protecting databases and servers in data centers, locking down endpoints (like laptops and notebooks), and educating employees about everyday social engineering threats (clicking on destructive malware on a website or answering a malicious email).

In addition, government workers must be mindful about how secure their everyday network communications are. To keep communications private and secure, government workers access various levels of secure networks. This is multi-level computing.

Examples of protected information networks include NIPRNet (private IP network), SIPRNet (classified), and JWICS (top secret). 

Government and military workers often use virtualization tools at the endpoint to most best access these networks. Today, the preferred virtualization tool is SecureView, developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and implemented by NCS Technologies.
