Unstructured data and documents are an integral part of government contracting, but they pose a significant security risk. Unlike structured data stored in databases, unstructured data is not organized, making it challenging to locate and control. With the increasing use of mobile devices and remote work, unstructured data can be accessed from multiple endpoints outside of network boundaries, increasing the risk of data loss or cyber attacks. Furthermore, without proper visibility into who is accessing what files across the organization, there is a significant risk of insider threats and data breaches.
Government contracting often requires sharing information internally and externally with contractors and partners. However, traditional methods of sharing information, such as email and file transfer protocol (FTP), are often not secure enough to protect sensitive information. Secure sharing of information requires traceability, user-friendly interfaces, and secure transfer mechanisms. Additionally, ensuring only the right people have access to the right information is a critical challenge. This requires a Zero Trust Data Access (ZTDA) solution that verifies user identity and access privileges before granting data access.
Phalanx MUZE provides a secure platform for sharing information internally and externally, ensuring traceability, user-friendly interfaces, and secure transfer mechanisms. The platform offers end-to-end encryption for sensitive information such as proposal, costing, and bidding information, as well as Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and export-controlled information for components of CMMC and ITAR compliance. With Phalanx MUZE, sharing proprietary client information stored in cloud and endpoint environments by remote workforces is secure and straightforward, reducing the amount of unencrypted information residing on email servers.
Phalanx MUZE provides a Zero Trust Data Access (ZTDA) solution that combines automation, encryption, and identity for a seamless data access experience. With ZTDA, access to data is granted based on identity, device, location, and other contextual factors, providing an extra layer of security that traditional access controls cannot offer. This ensures that only the right people have access to the right information, reducing the risk of insider threats and data breaches. Additionally, ZTDA allows for easy encrypted data access without relying on cloud storage, securing third-party file transfers, and protecting sensitive information stored on endpoints outside of network boundaries.
Phalanx MUZE has helped numerous government contractors protect their sensitive information, including costing, bidding, and proposal information. The platform has secured remote workers across multiple sites internationally, providing end-to-end encryption and traceability for Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and export-controlled information. Phalanx MUZE's Zero Trust Data Access (ZTDA) solution has enabled contractors to work securely from any location, without sacrificing productivity.
Phalanx MUZE has also helped its customers achieve compliance with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and export-controlled information components of CMMC and ITAR. The platform provides encryption and traceability for these types of information, ensuring that they are protected from cyber threats and unauthorized access. Phalanx MUZE has enabled contractors to securely transfer CUI, PII, export-controlled information, and wiring/payment information to third parties while maintaining compliance with regulatory requirements.
