In this day and age, good security can make or break your business, your IT, or even your personal life. Security is something that everyone thinks about—from “Did I lock my door before I left?” to “Do I really have a strong enough login to protect my vital data?” That said, there are some environments where security is of the utmost concern. A prime example of this high-stakes security is the U.S. government, as SolarWinds’ IT management work with our Federal customers has shown us time and time again.


During this THWACKcamp session, “What the US Government Can Teach You About Securing SolarWinds,” I’ll be joined by Paul Parker, SolarWinds Chief Technologist for the Federal & National Government, as we thoroughly review some of the helpful security techniques employed by Federal IT teams and how they can be applied to any business, regardless of size or security needs. We’ll certainly take a look at the SolarWinds products that are commonly used by government agencies for cybersecurity and how they can play a part in helping to optimize your security. Through thoughtful demos, we’ll review Active Directory integration and how it can assist with single sign-on, multi-factor authentication, and CAC, as well as Network Configuration Manager (NCM) compliance policy reports. We’ll also share some real-life examples of port requirements and security gone wrong. These talking points are just the tip of the iceberg of what you’ll get during this THWACKcamp session.
