Keeping informed to stay safe

Look to trustworthy organizations for accurate, timely education about COVID-19.

Helping to support those on the frontlines

Strengthen communities by aiding our service members and healthcare professionals.

We’ve teamed up with USO’s Force Behind the Forces® initiative to combat COVID-19. Together, we’ve raised $31,000 to support USO-Metro response efforts focused on delivering impactful services and programming to lessen the effect on our military community during this time of need. These contributions position USO-Metro at the ready to respond to the ever changing operational demands placed on the military in the weeks and months ahead.

As part of those efforts, USO-Metro has delivered more than 1,000 care packages and served more than 2,800 pre-packaged meals to service members, military children, and healthcare professionals at local military installations since the pandemic started.

Meeting the challenges agencies face

The immediate IT needs we are hearing from government agencies as they transition to allow their employees to work remotely include:

Security

Enable remote workforce to securely access IT resources.

Capacity

Optimize networks to accommodate increased teleworker demands AND external users (citizens) accessing web sites and applications.

Productivity

Minimize disruption for people forced to work remotely, especially those who need to access legacy applications.

Analytics

Leverage structured and unstructured data to achieve mission critical objectives like tracking infections, travel, responses, etc.


Providing solutions that can help
 

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for Teleworking

As government employees move to teleworking, they need secure access to the data and systems required for their job. To help with this challenge, we’re providing an unlimited edition of NetIQ Advanced Authentication that offers multi-factor authentication for as many users as you need.

Agencies can connect this trial to secure their users coming in through VPN, RADIUS, web portals, etc., as well as any internal requirements they may have. This COVID-19-specific license enables the use of all Advanced Authentication features through July 31, 2020.

IDOL delivers text analytics, speech analytics, video analytics and unstructured data analytics on an extremely diverse set of file formats across an exhaustive range of data repositories.

Manage, Automate, and Ensure Compliance of Virtual Networks for Confident Telework Environments

With more combined government employees working from home than ever before due to COVID-19, networks are feeling the impact. Make sure your agency’s network infrastructure is capable of providing sufficient bandwidth and can identify bottlenecks rapidly by “stress testing” with the Network Operations Management suite (NOM).

This case example demonstrates how NOM can be used to build Business Value Dashboards that present your data in real time in a very flexible layout for visualizing on any browser capable device.
