The need for inter-agency communication has never been greater, whether central or regional level. Government data is by its nature highly confidential and as such is prone to theft, loss or misuse. Furthermore, the type of data held by government bodies is diverse, from central policy documents to the personal records of members of the community.
This complexity is compounded by the need for government organizations to share data with a broad range of people such as members of the public, employees, contractors and other third party agencies. Handling such diverse data records and managing so many digital identities can be a huge task.
Government bodies must also ensure they deliver services and regulate functions that are vital to public safety and commerce.
Celestix provides government organizations the ability to securely publish only the network resources that are required by users in order to meet the demands of their role. For instance, electoral register records can be made available only to that voter and criminal records can be shared only between agencies with the appropriate level of trust. Access can be controlled through the enforcement of strong user policies, ensuring that users without the rights to view certain network resources never get to see them.
In addition, Celestix solutions allow government establishments to manage user identities, allowing for the use of authentication, single sign on and not just for the user but also at the device level. The combination of remote access, authentication and identity management ensures government organizations can remain in control of their data and can provide accurate reporting to regulatory bodies.
