Why Is Zero-Trust Adoption So Important Today?
The concept of zero-trust is not new; it’s been around for a decade. But the complexity of today’s business structures and the rise of digital transformation are inspiring organizations to take a different security approach: creating policy-based controls to enable secure access no matter how diverse or disruptive the current landscape is.
Verify each request for access or execution as though it originates from an open network.
Restrict access based on the minimum permissions required to carry out a task.
Reduce risk by inspecting and monitoring every activity. Use analytics to get visibility and drive threat detection.
Reduce Cost With Centralized Management
Building a Better Security Ecosystem with Zero-Trust Adoption
Understanding the Zero-Trust Approach
This concept redefines security objectives to enable continuous monitoring, adaptive risk-based policies, and advanced user authentication. All with one goal: to remove implicit trust.
Zero-Trust Security Layers
To fully adopt zero-trust security and enable multiple layers of defense in your organization, you need to integrate a strong identity framework, followed by endpoint and network security. This will create a compressive architecture that will cover devices, data, networks, and infrastructure.
