Government contractors and cybersecurity professionals discussed the challenge of simplifying federal agencies' efforts to protect their information technology infrastructure from cyber attacks during the RSA Public Sector conference held Monday in San Francisco, CyberScoop reported Tuesday.

Steve Harris, senior vice president and general manager of Dell EMC's federal business, told the publication on the sidelines of the conference about the complexity and issues posed by security systems in an IT infrastructure to agency employees.

He discussed an approach that agencies can implement to streamline their cybersecurity efforts.

“When we actually treat the infrastructure as a platform, it allows customers to greatly simplify their development and the way the build software,“ said Harris, a 2019 Wash100 winner.

“When you start building software in that way, it greatly reduces bad actors' ability to attack you. What we're accomplishing is taking what were many silos or products, and we're integrating them together into a platform approach, which is eminently more defendable and securable,“ he added.
