No government agency can afford not to serve the public, even for a little while. Government is a 24-hour, 7 day-a-week operation and no downtime can be tolerated. What’s more, the security of data resources is paramount.
If a business must interrupt its operations to deal with an accidental deletion or modification to critical objects in one or more of its Active Directories, the consequences are largely financial. However, when a government agency experiences similar problems, people’s lives are affected, directly, immediately, and sometimes gravely. If users at any level of government, local, municipal, state, or national, can’t log on or can’t access critical files:
- Public assistance checks won’t get written
- Case files won’t be available
- Public health records won’t get updated
- Driver licenses won’t be processed
- Emergency responders could be delayed
You need to protect your Active Directory and your file access information with a solution that’s:
You also need:
- Flexible licensing that allows you to purchase only the functionality you need .
- Modular implementation that allows you to install only the modules you need now, without additional overhead.
- Scalability that supports millions of users with thousands of servers as well as it does hundreds of users with only a few servers.
