World Wide Technology (WWT), a leading technology service provider, knows that local governments have a lot to juggle – managing the complexity of their current systems and safeguarding their cybersecurity for tomorrow. They’ve recently released a blog detailing the how they can help.

Assessing Current Tools and Future Cybersecurity Needs
Recently, WWT helped a large Department of Defense agency rationalize its current cybersecurity tools in an all-day Ideation Workshop. WWT experts, armed with decades of cybersecurity and homeland security experience, hosted the workshop with for agency stakeholders at our Innovation Center in the heart of Washington, D.C. This workshop provided the opportunity to talk through elements of the existing cybersecurity program and map the agency’s current capabilities to a model reference architecture. The exercise revealed several tools that the agency was paying for but wasn’t using completely.
The Result: A Streamlined, Cost-Effective Security Strategy
WWT recommended a plan to decommission duplicative capabilities and identified a next-generation firewall to apply unified protection both on premises and in cloud infrastructure. Because of the WWT Ideation Workshop, the agency had a better understanding of the tools and capabilities it already had while immediately putting a plan in place to maximize what was already working and eliminate several overlapping capabilities, saving immense costs.
