ESET serves state, local and federal agencies nationwide—protecting data, users and equipment to ensure continuity of operations 24/7.

Leaders in protection, compliance and support.

Government organizations are highly attractive to cybercriminals, who see them as both vulnerable and highly profitable. In recent years, these vulnerabilities have increased as the attack surface has expanded. Contributing factors include moving to the cloud; expanding public access to data; increasing use of third-party suppliers and service providers; and the shift toward remote or hybrid office work.

ESET security solutions address these and other challenges common to government organizations of all sizes, including:

Securing confidential information, such as tax records and credit card numbers, while also providing online access.

Preventing interruptions or shutdowns of vital services, such as electricity or water, caused by ransomware or DDoS attacks.

Budget constraints exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic, including loss of tax revenues.

Equipment ranging from legacy hardware and multiple OSes to the latest mobile devices.

Compliance, auditing and reporting requirements driven by PCI DSS, ADA, FISMA, HIPAA and more.

The need for cybersecurity education for all employees.
