Federal, state and local governments face the challenging task of balancing openness and trust with privacy and protection.
Beyond the data governments must legally protect, is an interesting variety of information that should be protected. Examples of both include:
- Internal Revenue Service (IRS) – personal tax records
- Veterans Administration (VA) – Health records
- Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) – law enforcement information
- Department of Defense (DoD) – strategic & tactical military data and information
- State and Local
- Tax records
- Child Welfare and Foster Care programs
- State contracting and procurement
- Law enforcement

Over the past several years Global Velocity has proven itself with cybersecurity solutions in the demanding defense and intelligence sectors of the federal government. This work has resulted in a number of high-level customer relationships.
According to Market Research Media, the U.S. Government has laid out broad plans for the implementation of cloud computing in the federal government infrastructure, a step reflecting a fundamental re-examination of investments in technology infrastructure. The federal government cloud computing market has entered a double-digit growth phase of about 16% Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) over the period 2013-2018, with projections of hitting $10 billion by 2018. Global Velocity believes that as a result of the federal government’s stated goal to migrate its computing resources to the cloud, the same market opportunities being pursued for Information-Centric Security commercial customers also will exist in the federal market.
Several key leaders in the U.S. Government have publicly stated the time has arrived for security that is more information-centric. Recent events such as Wikileaks’ and Edward Snowden’s release of sensitive information have brought increased visibility to the problems associated with managing and protecting mission critical information. Global Velocity’s technology is proven in this arena and well positioned to serve the ever-increasing needs of the federal government. In time, these opportunities may grow to include the nation's allies, as well.
In addition to Global Velocity’s cloud-based Information-Centric Security solutions, the Company has a rich history of supporting federal customers with its patented and patent pending approach to classifying network traffic by using computer hardware to perform complete flow analysis, real time pattern matching, content monitoring and filtering, and policy enforcement. By relying on high speed hardware processing, Global Velocity offers products to its federal customers that operate at multi-Gbps throughputs. The Company believes it is well positioned to continue to secure many large federal cybersecurity contracts because of its unique ability to provide both cloud enabled Information-Centric Security as well as Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technologies.
According to Market Research Media, U.S. government-related IP traffic will increase tenfold from 2013 to 2018. DPI is the only currently available technology capable of providing security for ever-growing IP traffic with inherent traffic management capabilities. Given the severity of recent Chinese hacking attacks and the potential catastrophic consequences of critical networks disruption, DPI technology is in a favorable position to emerge as a major line of cyberdefense for years to come. The U.S. Government DPI market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 31% from 2013 to $1.8 Billion by 2018. Market Research Media believes the market will see a few good years of explosive growth in all segments.
