SOLUTION BRIEF PUBLIC SECTOR +1.855.813.3385 | 1 Secure Connectivity for Elections & Polling Places The Challenge Government agency leaders and IT departments have many network-related challenges to consider when connecting and securing voter kiosks on election day. With temporary polling places at locations ranging from rural towns to big cities, agencies need flexible, easy-to-deploy Internet access. With the integrity of the democratic process at stake, election and registrar departments must have assurance that voter data is completely secure — and that it's isolated from applications such as WiFi for volunteers. Further, with lean IT teams, agencies require the ability to troubleshoot connectivity and security remotely. All of these issues must be addressed with cost-effective solutions that fit well into streamlined government budgets. The Solution Agencies leverage Cradlepoint's all-in-one branch solutions for pop-up connectivity at polling locations anywhere. Cloud-managed and software- defined routers — delivered through NetCloud Service — include high- performance WiFi and support multiple WAN options, such as wired connections and up to two LTE dual-SIM modems for ultra-reliable connectivity. Advanced security and Unified Threat Management (UTM) features including app-based control, multi-zone firewall, IPS/IDS, and web content filtering provide enhanced voting system security. Also, with NetCloud Perimeter running on each router, sensitive data from voting booths can be isolated on perimeter-secured overlay networks — leveraging Software-Defined Perimeter technology.
