These challenges give IT decision makers the responsibility to boost the reach and quality of services, while also reducing cost and complexity on the backend. As a demonstrated leader in secure, enterprise-grade mobility and software-defined productivity, VMware has the experience and expertise agencies can rely on to help drive their missions forward.

  • Bulletproof security fortifies your agency from the inside, creating a more resilient infrastructure.
  • Seamless mobility redefines accessibility and productivity in a mobile-centric world.

SAIC Chooses VMware NSX for its Automation and Security Capabilities

Build Bulletproof Security
 

Expanding government services and increasing agency mobility both mean new threats are coming – is your IT ready? VMware NSX helps you build robust data center micro-segmentation that lets IT easily build and manage granular, workload-specific security that guards against threats that outsmart traditional perimeter defenses.

 

VMware NSX secures the data center from the inside out through micro-segmentation, delivering robust, compartmentalized workload-specific security. While perimeter defenses focus mostly on intrusion, micro-segmentation protects against lateral threats, the ability of viruses or hackers to move undetected between critical connections, applications and databases.

Create Seamless Mobility
 

Mobility is the key to making today’s digital government work. Users, devices, applications and operating systems are growing more diverse, creating the need for a mobility platform that is easy to customize and simple to support. VMware Air Watch with Enterprise Mobility Management gives federal IT the ability to balance access and accountability, extending mobility while managing risk and giving agencies detailed control over the entire mobile experience, from onboarding devices to managing content and applications. AirWatch helps ensure consistently high-quality experiences that boost productivity and performance backed by state-of-the-art mobile security and data loss prevention.
