IT security for public sector

Zero Trust - a strategic approach for public authorities and administration

Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) is becoming more and more important in IT. ZTNA is based on the philosophy of not trusting a device or a user until it is definitively authenticated. As our working environment is increasingly reshaped by mobile working, digitalization, the Internet of Things and the outsourcing of various services to the cloud, ZTNA must continue to be a key component of integrative IT security solutions in the future.

Digitization no longer affects only industrial companies, but also public administration. A digital society needs not only a modern infrastructure, but also a secure one. 

Public Authorities are a target for cyber-attacks more than ever, due to the sensitive information stored - about every single one of us. When digitizing administrative processes, European guidelines for network and information security or data protection must also be observed, whilst complex networks grow by number of devices, employees and data volumes.
