In partnership with MeriTalk, we developed a “health check” for U.S. federal government agencies & surveyed 300 U.S. Federal IT managers to understand security issues that are top of mind in their data center plans. Check out the results, and remember, the threats to federal systems will only continue to grow, so don’t let security be a roadblock to your government data center modernization.
