Cyber Attacks Against State And Local
Governments Are Surging

U.S. state and local governments are under threat now more than ever. Cyber attacks against state and local municipalities have increased almost 50% since 2017.

Ransomware demands have also risen from an average of $30,000 to $380,000. To adapt to this rapidly changing landscape, government entities need a solution that protects against all cyber threats.

With cyber attacks increasing in volume, variety, sophistication, and velocity, it’s no wonder companies struggle to keep up. Consolidated security allows you to overcome these challenges. A single unified architecture secures your cloud, mobile, IoT, endpoints, and network, streamlining operations and reducing costs.

State And Local Government Cyber Security
Requires A Consolidated Architecture

Traditionally, IT professionals stitched together a variety of products, each designed to address specific security issues. A consolidated architecture provides you with improved visibility, superior threat intelligence, and simplified management across your entire environment. With cyber criminals targeting your network, cloud, and endpoint and IoT devices, it’s time to consider a cyber security strategy that covers all your bases.

State And Local Government Cyber Security Requires A Consolidated Architecture

Stop Ransomware In Its Tracks

Cell phone ransomware

One of the biggest threats to governments of all sizes is ransomware. A successful ransomware attack can cause you significant downtime, lasting days, months, or even longer. State and local government entities often have tight budgets and cannot afford to be hit with a successful ransomware attack, which typically has devastating financial consequences.

Check Point’s Anti-Ransomware is a necessity for state and local government cyber security. Protect your entire agency from the most dangerous ransomware attacks and restores encrypted data to ensure business continuity. Anti-Ransomware is part of Check Point’s advanced endpoint security suite, Harmony Endpoint.


Prevent Phishing

Phishing is one of the most dangerous and effective forms of cyber crime. Humans are often the weakest link, and it only takes a momentary lapse of judgment to fall victim. The consequences of a successful phishing attempt cannot be understated. For instance, in January of 2020, a city in Wisconsin was disabled by a ransomware attack, which was introduced via a phishing email. When the attack was taking place, their city manager said, “Our ability to access anything on our computer files right now is non-existent.”

The ability to prevent phishing scams is paramount for state and local government cyber security. Check Point offers solutions to block phishing attacks across email, mobile, and endpoint devices.
