Forcepoint’s Sean Berg Suggests Zero Trust, Behavioral Analytics, Continuous Monitoring Combination for Gov’t Cybersecurity

TYSONS CORNER, VA, January 13, 2021 — Sean Berg, president of Forcepoint‘s global governments and critical infrastructure business, has said combining a zero-trust architecture, continuous monitoring tools and behavioral analytics would allow agencies to authenticate users and prevent unauthorized network access, ExecutiveBiz reported Thursday.

In a Jan. 6 post on FedScoop, he wrote that government organizations should consider implementing an inside-out perimeter approach focused on user behavior instead of the traditional outside-in strategy to secure critical data or applications in the age of remote work.

“When paired with a zero trust architecture, continuous monitoring reduces friction that can stand in the way of successfully executing a mission. Instead of locking down vast amounts of data by default and inhibiting information sharing, behavioral analytics makes it possible to personalize the security response on a case-by-case basis,” Berg noted.
