Cybersecurity Protection for the Public Sector Today, and for Tomorrow
A scathing report published in 2021 by the Department of Homeland Security, titled “Federal Cybersecurity: America’s Data Still at Risk”, highlighted America’s “at risk” legacy systems. It brought out the fact that in 2020, there were 30,819 information security incidents across the Federal Government. The report referenced their 2019 report that sighted eight Federal agencies, including DHS, State, DOT, HUD, USDA, HHS, Education, and SSA that failed to comply with basic cybersecurity standards.
The report found agencies consistently failed to implement certain key cybersecurity requirements, including limiting each user’s access only to the information and systems needed to perform their job, and the lack of multi-factor authentication. These Federal agencies lax cybersecurity practices are putting America’s critical infrastructure and U.S. citizen information at great risk. As you can imagine, the Federal government has countless legacy systems that need to be updated with endpoint security and zero trust access protections to keep America’s critical infrastructure, and its citizens information private.
Based upon rapidly evolving technology advances, single-function security solutions will not be enough when hackers, state-sponsored, or otherwise, penetrate security holes between these solutions. China has been harvesting data from U.S. entities for years. Nobody in the United States knows exactly where China, Russia, or North Korea are in their cyber espionage or potential sabotage pursuits. By the time they do know about it, if they aren’t prepared with holistic cybersecurity protections, it will be too late.

RevBits is a cybersecurity technology leader that delivers new levels of security intelligence, using behavioral analysis, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, through our Cyber Intelligence Platform, or CIP. A unified platform that automates and integrates a suite of security products and modules, CIP detects, alerts, responds, and intelligently analyzes multi-layered security data across the entire IT and security stack. Data is coalesced and presented with unprecedented visibility within the RevBits unified dashboard. RevBits is taking cybersecurity to the next level, innovating new capabilities, with multiple patented technologies to ensure our competitive advantage.
The cybersecurity market has many vendors that tackle one or two security capabilities. This creates security siloes, with gaps between products and no consistent way to integrate, correlate and easily analyze critical security information. RevBits has a broad range of integrated cybersecurity products that are best-in-class individually, and more importantly, provide superior protection, by natively working together. With one glance at the RevBits integrated dashboard, a CISO can immediately see the status of all components within their cyber defense.
In addition to having its own SIEM, RevBits CIP is an extensible platform that can plug into Syslog, LogRhythm, Splunk, SIEM, and other log management and security platforms. RevBits can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud, and supports multi-cloud, on-premises, and hybrid environments.

Whether an organization is in the public or private sector, nobody knows when a cyberattack will occur. By the time it is discovered, it will be too late. This is why it is so important to protect data and resources with a unified cybersecurity platform.
In the fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood”, a big bad wolf secretly stalks and eventually approaches Red, who naively tells him where she’s going. Using the information innocently provided by Red, the wolf quickly navigates to the grandmother's house. Once there, he wreaks havoc and waits for the girl. When Red Riding Hood arrives at the house, the wolf eats her, too.
Despite the fact that there’s a huge market for cybersecurity software, the ever-increasing number of serious cyber breaches clearly demonstrates a need for better protection, and an integrated approach. With both state and non-state sponsored hackers, the sophistication of cyberattacks can only be stopped by equally sophisticated solutions.
