Government and Federal Institutions

Government institutions, both large and small, have struggled for years to keep pace with malicious hackers and insider threats. Cybercrime is becoming innovative and ruthless, and therefore government agencies and federal institutions need to look beyond traditional methods to prevent cyber espionage and ensure the protection of sensitive data and critical infrastructure.

Provide secure access to documents, applications and information

Provide fast, reliable access to agency data to those who need it, while confidently blocking those who don’t. Emailed documents can easily be a loophole in a secure business environment, making them a particular challenge. Your employees exchange documents frequently with recipients, and once those documents leave your control; you need to know they won’t be misused.

Secures documents from the moment of creation

  • Secure all documents by default so they cannot be unintentionally shared
  • Provides access only to authorized individuals or groups
  • Specifies how documents can be used by authorized recipients

Put an end to cyber espionage

One of the biggest threats to governments of all sizes is cyber espionage. To get ahead, your institution needs a multi-faceted prevention strategy that combines proactive protection that eliminates threats before they reach users, and state-of-the-art CPU-level exploit detection to expose even the most highly camouflaged threats.

Check Point offers a comprehensive solution, with:

  • A full range of interoperable threat prevention blades
  • Common policy management and monitoring
  • Maximum protection from emerging threats

Protect critical infrastructure

Government institutions also have the responsibility to protect and defend their local, state or national level critical infrastructure. This includes deploying security platforms across both IT and OT networks for a unified end-to-end security architecture to protect critical assets from threats. Threats to IT networks are protected from OT networks that are not updated or patched as frequently as IT systems and do not have the same level of security. OT networks are protected from Advanced Persistent Threats that target IT networks.

  • Our Next-Generation Firewall enables granular functional control of SCADA protocols
  • Log SCADA protocols, including commands and parameters for forensic analysis of incidents in your operation networks
  • Create a baseline of known/legitimate traffic to identify and prevent deviations and anomalies
  • Monitor your compliance to major regulations such as NERC CIP v5 using the Compliance Software Blade



How We Can Help

Block APT and zero-day attacks

  • Integrated, defense-in-depth protection that enables government institutions to detect, protect and respond to multiple advanced attack vectors simultaneously
  • Integrated solution that leverages antivirus, IPS protections, anti-bot and firewall technology
  • Real-time intelligence feeds to security gateways via Check Point ThreatCloud services, protecting against unknown malware, zero-day exploits and advanced persistent threats (APTs)


Continuously monitor and diagnose environment

The Continuous Diagnostics and Monitoring (CDM) program, launched by the Department of Homeland Security, addresses the challenge of knowing what is occurring on a continuous basis—not just at audit time. Our CDM offering provides Federal Agencies with real-time configuration monitoring against a library of security best practice diagnostics to ensure you’re always in compliance.

  • Facilitate event investigation and gain real-time insight into critical security events
  • Customize reporting to tailor to different stakeholder needs
  • Monitor devices and be alerted to changes in gateways, endpoints, tunnels, remote users and security activities


Secure information on multiple devices

  • Integrated security that leverages a single protection architecture for mobile and endpoint-based systems such as mobile phones, laptops and medical devices
  • Ensure remote connectivity for managed endpoints
  • Protect mobile devices from threats and secure documents


Defend critical infrastructure

  • Leverage our full range of threat prevention capabilities including firewall, IPS, anti-malware, and sandboxing to detect and prevent inbound threats to SCADA networks
  • Monitor your compliance to major regulations such as NERC CIP v5 using the Compliance Software Blade
  • Log SCADA protocols, including commands and parameters for forensic analysis of incidents in your operation networks
  • Our Next-Generation Firewall enables granular functional control of SCADA protocols


Advanced Incident Detection and Response

  • Effectively prioritize events to focus on the ones that are important
  • Timeline sequence and details of an attack to aid in responding quickly to a security incident
  • Interaction with intelligence sources and incident response analysis and recommended remediation for quick recovery
