Supporting IT for a distributed workforce is tough at all agencies. The latest version of the TIC policy, known as TIC 3.0, has provided relief.
Providing the right level of access, performance and security for remote workers using the cloud requires solutions that can scale virtually infinitely.
To move forward, successful agencies will leverage TIC 3.0 and Zero Trust in tandem.
Most organizations have between 20 and 75 security solutions, each solving a separate problem. While these tools can help fight specific cybersecurity threats, they often don’t integrate well with one another, creating visibility problems and complexity overload.
Any discussion about improving the security of the federal IT enterprise sooner or later comes around to the topic of network visibility.
The rise of cloud, mobility and related applications effectively have undermined the concept of perimeter-based security. That is why the Trusted Internet Connection (TIC) 3.0 addresses the need to address security when users, applications and data reside outside the perimeter.
The evolution of the Trusted Internet Connection (TIC) program – from TIC 1.0 more than 10 years ago to TIC 3.0 today – reflects how technology often moves in unexpected ways.
The hope now is that agencies won’t have to bend backwards to satisfy TIC. The hope is that TIC will instead be flexible enough for agencies to adopt modern solutions tailored to their needs.
The Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) program launched in 2007 to protect the security of federal network connections governmentwide.
