Protecting Critical Data Sent and Shared
Across the Government Supply Chain

Federal and central government agencies exchange confidential information through different communication channels—including email, file sharing, managed file transfer, SFTP, and web forms. Malicious cybercriminals and rogue nation-states understand the value of this private data and target these communication channels. At the same time, federal cybersecurity standards and regulations mandate the use of comprehensive governance and protections. Recent Executive Orders, such as EO 14028, require government agencies to employ zero-trust security principles from the network to content.

The Kiteworks Private Content Network unifies, controls, tracks, and secures all file and email data communications in one platform. FedRAMP Authorized for Moderate Level Impact, Kiteworks enables government agencies to employ zero-trust content policies to ensure first- and third-party access to sensitive content—controlling, tracking, and reporting on who can access, edit, send, share, and receive content communications. This dramatically minimizes exposure and compliance risks.

Frequently Asked Questions

When sensitive information is shared and sent through emails and files, there is a higher risk of cyberattacks and data breaches. These risks increase when the information is shared using public networks and insecure data storage systems. In the case of the federal government, the information shared may be confidential national security information, which if accessed by unauthorized personnel, can have severe consequences. Kiteworks provides enterprise-grade file sharing, secure email, managed file transfer, and web forms that adhere to strict security protocols and comply with federal regulations such as FedRAMP Authorized to Moderate Level Impact, FIPS 140-2, IRAP assessed to PROTECTED level, and Cyber Essentials Plus, among others. The platform is designed to prevent unauthorized access and usage of data, with intricately layered security measures in place, which include end-to-end encryption, multi-factor authentication, data loss prevention, and granular access controls.

Sharing, transferring, and sending sensitive information across different federal and central government agencies increases the likelihood of intercepts by hackers and unauthorized personnel. This can happen even when the files are secured by firewalls and other security protocols. This creates a complicated web of access controls and security measures that can become difficult to manage. Kiteworks offers a centralized platform that empowers users to share files and data across different government agencies with ease. The platform is designed to provide seamless integration with other systems, which makes sharing files and emails much more secure. All data transfers are logged and tracked to ensure the highest level of security.

Data leakage for federal and central governments happens when sensitive data is accessed, transferred, sent, and shared without proper authorization. This can happen through unauthorized access to email accounts or through unsecured file transfer protocols. This creates a breach of confidentiality and can lead to reputational damage as well as regulatory penalties. Kiteworks offers a secure and encrypted communication channel, which prevents any unauthorized access, transfer, and sharing of confidential information. The platform also provides features like content classification and data loss prevention, which allows organizations to control access to sensitive data, identify potential data leaks, and prevent them from happening.

Mobile devices pose significant risks when federal and central government agencies share and send sensitive data. These devices often lack proper security protocols and can be easily accessed by unauthorized personnel. Further, the data being shared can be stored on the mobile device, which creates a vulnerability point if the device is lost or stolen. Kiteworks offers a mobile app that is designed to provide secure and encrypted file sharing on mobile devices. The app ensures that sensitive data is securely stored and accessed only by authorized personnel. The platform also provides remote wipe capabilities, which means that if a mobile device is lost or stolen, the data stored on it can be remotely deleted to ensure that it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.

Outdated file sharing systems can be a significant risk for federal and central government agencies. These systems often lack modern security protocols and may not be compliant with federal regulations. This creates vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers and other malicious actors. Kiteworks provides a modern and secure file sharing and data management solution that adheres to strict security protocols and complies with federal regulations. The platform is designed to replace outdated file sharing systems and provides granular control over data access and sharing. It also comes with advanced security features like end-to-end encryption, multi-factor authentication, and advanced threat protection, which ensures that sensitive data is always safe and secure.
