Zero-Trust Approach to Cybersecurity

Zero Trust Architecture

All of our solutions follow a Zero Trust Approach to cybersecurity.

Zero Trust is a security framework that assumes that no user or device should be trusted by default, and it aims to provide secure access to resources and data by continuously verifying the identity and security posture of users and devices.

This approach moves us from old paradigm of ‘Trust but Verify’ to the new paradigm of ‘Never Trust, Always Verify’. No user is deemed trustworthy, continuous verification is required, and access inside the perimeter does not guarantee unfettered movement.

Here are few examples of how Zero Trust capability is built into our security solutions:

  1. Network Segmentation: Network segmentation is a Zero Trust approach that creates separate network segments for different types of users and devices. This approach reduces the attack surface by limiting the access that users and devices have to network resources. Network segmentation can be implemented using micro-segmentation, which creates small segments within a network and applies different security policies to each segment based on the type of user or device.
  2. Identity and Access Management: Zero Trust requires strong authentication and access controls for all users and devices. Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a Zero Trust approach that provides centralized management and control of user and device access to network resources. IAM solutions use multi-factor authentication, device management, and access policies to ensure that only authorized users and devices can access resources.
  3. Cloud Security: Zero Trust is also applied to our cloud security. Cloud providers offer a range of security features, such as identity and access management, encryption, and network security. However, Zero Trust requires that organizations take responsibility for securing their own data and applications in the cloud. This can be done using cloud access security brokers (CASBs), which provide visibility and control over cloud applications and data. CASBs can also enforce policies for access control, data loss prevention, and threat protection.
  4. Endpoint Security: Zero Trust is implemented in our endpoint security solutions to protect devices from threats and ensure that only trusted devices can access resources. Endpoint security solutions can include antivirus software, firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and device management solutions that enforce security policies for endpoint devices.

Zero Trust can be applied in various ways to build security solutions that provide continuous verification of user and device identity and security posture.
