ULTRA RED for Government Organizations

Government organizations, both central and local, are targeted by a range of actors including nation states and state funded organizations, cyber criminals, and cyber activists. Depending on the actors involved, successful attacks on Internet exposed assets can result in the theft of sensitive information, the harvesting of citizen data, digital service disruption and blackmail.

From a broader security perspective, our government customers are focused on:

  • National Security - defending against geo-political motivated attacks
  • Service Continuity - Maintaining availability and resilience of digital citizen services.
  • Protection of Citizen Information (PII)
  • Overseeing the protection of Critical National Infrastructure
  • Protecting infrastructure deployed to support flexible working arrangements for government employees (Work from Anywhere).

Top attack surface challenges resulting from these priorities include:

  • External asset discovery and curation.
  • Continuous discovery of new assets and updates to existing assets as things change.
  • Timely discovery validation and remediation of vectors and identification of deprecated components and services.  
  • Detection of sensitive data such as login credentials and PII exposure

With ULTRA RED, Government organizations gain full visibility of their Internet exposed assets and services, scoped to support the way their security teams operate (ie. individual department or shared services). Automatic vector detection and deep validation greatly improve the productivity of cyber teams by saving untold hours in uncovering and validating serious vulnerabilities. Full documentation and remediation guidance cuts mean-time-to-remediation in half. ULTRA RED’s industry leading repository of DarkNet and open-source intelligence detects PII and sensitive information exposures enabling a timely response. Full support of Gartner's Continuous Threat and Exposure Management framework delivers a standard process to systematically improve staff productivity and reduce attack surface risk. From a national security perspective, government CERTs can gain oversight of assets belonging to their critical national infrastructure organizations.
