TYSONS CORNER, VA, Oct. 7, 2016 — Randy Wood, vice president of federal sales at F5 Networks (Nasdaq: FFIV), has urged federal information technology leaders to adopt a “zero trust” cybersecurity model, measures to address network performance limitations and network perimeter security, ExecutiveBiz reported Thursday.

“To be most effective in government cybersecurity, agencies need to worry less about threat intelligence and all the new products on the market; to be successful, you must go back to the fundamentals, ” Wood wrote in a blog post published Wednesday on the Carahsoft website.
