Step one of any Zero Trust effort requires knowing exactly who your users are. You can't trust anything about users, they must prove who they are including thier laptop, what they are trying to do with an application and more.
Removes implicit trust in various components of appplications when they talk with each other. A fundamental tenet of Zero Trust is that applications cannot be trusted-continous monitoring at runtime is necessary to validate their behaviour.
The same Zero Trust principles apply to infrastructure-implicit trust must be eliminated across everything infrastructure related: routers,switches,cloud,IoT, supply chain, etc.

The security operations center: an essential function

When building a Zero Trust Enterprise, the main role of the security operations center (SOC) is to provide an additional layer of verification to further reduce risk. By continuously monitoring all activity for signs of anomalous or malicious intent – using analytics, artificial intelligence, automation and human analysis – the SOC provides an audit point for earlier trust decisions and can override them if necessary. With a wider view of the entire infrastructure, the SOC has the ability to discover things that would normally go undetected. Download the e-book to learn more about the role of the SOC.

Becoming a Zero Trust Enterprise

Zero Trust starts with what you have and what is needed to reduce acute risk and achieve enterprise resilience. You can start anywhere: ZTNA, ransomware, microsegmentation, identity, devsecops, risk management, red teaming, or third-party management.

  • What is Zero Trust?

    Zero Trust is a strategic approach to cybersecurity that secures an organization by eliminating implicit trust and continuously validating every stage of a digital interaction.

  • Who is Zero Trust For?

    Zero Trust is for any enterprise that requires a secure network. So , if you’re going through a network transformation, if your data center is moving to the cloud, or if you’re going through a SecOps transformation, Zero Trust is for you.

  • When should you implement Zero Trust?

    If cybersecurity is important to you, and if your enterprise does not currently have a Zero Trust policy in place, the time is now to implement . Establishing Zero Trust is an opportunity for you to properly rebuild your security network, from the ground up.

Zero Trust today

Enterprises are transforming to accommodate the hybrid workforce, data center cloud migration and SOC automation. In response, many security vendors have begun to recommend Zero Trust. However, they often end up pointing back to their point solutions. Modern board members and C-level executives want and expect a systematic cybersecurity approach to rebuild risk management.

The Zero Trust Enterprise is an approach to cybersecurity that simplifies risk management to a single use case: the removal of all this implicit trust. No matter the situation, user, user location, access method, security becomes one single use case with the most extreme cybersecurity checks.
