The cybersecurity industry has an effectiveness problem. Despite new technologies emerging every year, high-profile breaches continue to occur. To prevent these attacks, the industry needs to adopt a new approach by focusing on security operations. That’s where Arctic Wolf can help.
Built on an open XDR architecture, the Arctic Wolf Platform® combines with our Concierge Security® Model to work as an extension of your team, proactively protect your environment, and strengthen your security posture.
We envision a future without cyber risk. Every organization should be so effective at security operations that both the likelihood and impact of a cyber attack is minimized to the point where risk is essentially zero.
Security Operations for State and Local Government
In an ideal world, when citizens give their data to state and local governments, it would stay safe and protected from cyber threats. Unfortunately, that’s not often the case, as the list of cybersecurity challenges continues to grow at an exponential rate.
It’s clear that governments need to gain greater visibility into what’s happening in their networks—before a breach occurs. However, for most public sector organizations, funding and staffing a 24x7 security operations program on a tight budget is an uphill battle.
The stakes have never been higher for state and local governments looking to protect invaluable data from cyber attacks.
Yearly budget increases aren’t keeping up with growing number of sophisticated threats, as well as the new tools and solutions needed to stop them.

Competing Prioritization of Resources
Compared to highly visible expenditures, adequately funding and resourcing cybersecurity initiatives is often overlooked—until it’s too late.
Protect your organization with a 24x7 dedicated Concierge® Security Team.
“Historically, cybersecurity in local governments was usually not a high-priority item, and it might not be something for which staff had training. Even if you wanted to bring in more security, a city might not have had the funds readily available at the time.Having a security operations provider allows us to more easily budget what we do on our end for security.”
