Using a Zero Trust, Cloud-Based Tactical Network to Protect our Tactical Edge

Being connected to the internet 24/7/365 with high-speed communication networks is no longer a luxury—it’s an expectation. We expect to find the information we need, when we need it, with no interruption. But for our tactical edge—the people deployed on the front lines—the environment is very different.

For those responsible for collecting and disseminating intelligence, the ability to securely connect to the internet from literally anywhere can be a matter of life and death; the difference between a successful mission and one that fails; or the difference between accurate intelligence delivered in time or too late.

In response to these needs, the Department of Defense (DoD) created the concept of the tactical cloud edge and tactical compute nodes. Learn more about how Zscaler Government Cloud can be your zero trust cloud solution.
