Smart Cities and Smarter Cybersecurity: How the Cloud Can Protect Your Jurisdiction
As government agencies shift from old-fashioned software to more sophisticated technologies that allow them to better serve constituents, cyber-risks also increase considerably. For this reason, part of becoming a smart city is choosing the right solutions that will provide smarter cybersecurity.
So, how can your community address these potential threats?
A View From The Cloud
Even though adopting cloud solutions offers a wide variety of benefits for local government, cybersecurity is on top of the list thanks to its enhanced capabilities.
Unified cloud solutions offer continuous security monitoring through:
- Numerous intrusion detection systems (IDS) to identify malicious traffic attempting to access its networks
- Any unauthorized attempts to access the data center are blocked, and unauthorized connection attempts are logged and investigated
- Enterprise-grade anti-virus software guards against trojans, worms, viruses and other malware from affecting the software and applications
Uptime, security and support are a given in the cloud as it is built to give your team access to systems from anywhere and provide exceptional uptime and advanced privacy protections.
