RSA Doubles Down on Government Zero Trust Initiatives Through Open Standards
RSA, the security-first identity leader, announced that it will add support for the Open Authentication (OATH) open standard at the Billington CyberSecurity Summit today. RSA’s support for open standards and the company’s own solutions can help government agencies fulfill key cybersecurity mandates—including directives for the implementation of zero trust network architecture, the adoption of multi-factor authentication (MFA), and the use of cloud technology, enterprise-managed identities, and phishing-resistant capabilities—outlined in EO 14028, NSM-8, and M-22-09, among others.
“Recent governmental cybersecurity mandates are positive, foundational catalysts for ensuring the resilience of critical infrastructure and assuring national security interests,” said RSA CEO Rohit Ghai. “In order to stay ahead of adversaries, government agencies and their affiliates will need to focus not just on compliance but innovating in partnership with vendors that build security-first best practices into how they engineer, supply, and support their solutions.”
