For federal agencies, it’s critical to ensure sensitive data doesn’t fall into the wrong hands, and that it is only accessed by those with a need to know. Because many organizations have numerous levels of access rights, as well as numerous channels and products by which data is disseminated, data tagging and access management have become extremely complex. For secure federal collaboration, organizations need to efficiently and securely share sensitive information.
Unfortunately, managing that data is often inefficient and full of friction: Some organizations have dozens of distinct servers and/or networks, each with their own unique access parameters, containing different sets of data. Additionally, sharing information with partners on shared drives is highly manual, with end users passing data to admins to ensure information is properly protected before being uploaded to a shared repository. With users navigating between these disparate interfaces, only able to view data on one server at a time, this introduces inefficiency, user error, and risk to agency missions.
Agencies need a more efficient way to balance security with visibility. Virtru Secure File Collaboration equips end users to securely share data with colleagues and coalition partners by automating encryption and applying access controls from existing tools.
The result is an environment where sensitive and classified data can be shared quickly and efficiently, with fewer bottlenecks and reduced risk — tying encryption and access controls to the data itself, everywhere it travels.
This white paper details how federal government teams can leverage Virtru Secure File Collaboration to create a trusted, secure means of sharing data.
What You’ll Learn:
- Why today's methods of managing shared data are not working efficiently
- Why a data-centric approach to security can maximize effectiveness and fulfill the promise of Zero Trust architecture
- How Virtru's solution ties existing tags and classification to shared data using Attribute-Based Access Control
- Why revocability is essential to securely share highly sensitive data with coalition partners
- What the end result can look like for various recipients with different levels of data access
