Growing Zero Trust with XDR

With dramatic changes taking place throughout the federal computing environment, security goalposts are shifting. A government-wide move towards more open and cloud-based systems expands the attack surface and explodes the traditional notion of perimeter security. More recent events, such as the shift to work-from-home, the emergence of the Internet-of-Things (IoT), and 5G and IPV6 are accelerating this trend. As a result, new cybersecurity risks are emerging as adversaries evolve their approaches to target these growing vulnerabilities.
