Municipalities & Academia
State, local, and academic institutions are responsible for serving their constituents and students, including protecting their data. In organizations such as these, a single network vulnerability is all an attacker needs to steal critical data. That fact makes the collection, storage, protection, and distribution of citizens’ private information more challenging than ever before. APCON has solutions for ensuring municipal and academic networks have world-class visibility, security, performance, and regulatory compliance.

As the Oldsmar water supply attack demonstrates, public entities need to maintain focus on cyber threats and their potential impact. If your systems oversee utilities, the worst-case scenario of a cyberattack can be much more than just losing data. Taking proactive steps to secure systems is crucial to avoiding the most severe consequences of cyberattacks.

Make Your Institution a Difficult Target
In these days of constant connectivity, citizens and students connect their computers, cars, smartphones, tablets, TVs, and consoles to school, college, and university networks, straining performance and security. As state and local applications, registrations, licenses, and payment systems move from paper to online and move to the cloud, their threat surface expands. Increasingly, communities like these are looking for ways to enable greater access while maintaining privacy and acceptable usage policies. APCON’s network monitoring and security solutions deliver optimal network traffic to the appropriate monitoring tools while providing real-time insights into every packet traversing state, local, and educational networks.
Getting governments up to speed on cybersecurity will be costly but necessary: 'Bad actors are a lot more organized than cities.'
