PALO ALTO, CA, US, May 9, 2024 / — RSA Conference 2024 News – Kiteworks, which delivers data privacy and compliance for sensitive content communications through its Private Content Network, announced today its Private Content Network aligns with the recently released National Security Administration’s (NSA) Zero Trust Maturity Throughout the Data Pillar model. Federal agencies, the Department of Defense (DoD) sector, and Defense Industrial Base (DIB) can demonstrate compliance quickly and easily across all seven Zero Trust Data Pillars with the help of Kiteworks.

Released in April, NSA’s report concludes that federal agencies, DoD, and DIB can no longer rely on traditional perimeter-based security models to protect sensitive data. Instead, the NSA concludes a Zero Trust approach focused on seven different Data Pillars is required: 1) Data Catalog Risk Alignment, 2) Enterprise Data Governance, 3) Data Labeling and Tagging, 4) Data Monitoring and Sensing, 5) Data Encryption and Rights Management, 6) Data Loss Prevention, and 7) Data Access Control.

Kiteworks provides a robust platform tailored for federal agencies, DoD, and DIB organizations seeking compliance with the NSA’s Zero Trust Maturity for Data Pillars. By offering capabilities such as granular access controls, real-time data usage monitoring, and robust data loss prevention, Kiteworks ensures that government organizations and DIB suppliers meet the highest standards of sensitive content communications security and compliance.

Kiteworks enables organizations to achieve the highest standards of data security and compliance by addressing each data pillar:
