Federal BP Whitepaper "Your Network is the New Battlefield"
Federal departments and agencies, along with elements of the national critical infrastructure, must take a proactive approach to information and network security in order to combat the ever-increasing multitude of cybersecurity threats. Major initiatives and developing National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) guidelines, including continuous monitoring and CyberScope, support the acquisition and deployment of solutions that will continuously monitor, manage, and mitigate vulnerabilities. With current budgetary constraints in mind, it’s crucial that these solutions provide a rapid return on investment with substantial resource recovery. IBM® Tivoli® Endpoint Manager, built on BigFix® technology, has been validated by NIST as conforming to the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) and its component standards. It provides a flexible automation framework for effective continuous monitoring and management that advances the current paradigm of disparate and non-integrated assessment and remediation systems from multiple vendors.
