While the wheels of digital transformation were set in motion much earlier, the pandemic accelerated their speed. It significantly impacted how organisations approach their IT ecosystem and security. Today’s landscape, with no perimeter, requires a Zero Trust approach.
Zero Trust has reached buzzword status in the security industry. But, unfortunately, many vendors that claim to provide Zero Trust solutions fall short of addressing all critical components.
Government agencies, from the municipal to the federal level, have the largest and most varied number of use cases that require a Zero Trust Architecture , because of the range of systems they operate and the weaknesses of OT security.
A zero-trust framework is essential but is not enough. It needs to be part of a comprehensive cybersecurity solution that is a match for increasingly courageous, sophisticated threat actors.
Organizations must have effective defense against DDoS attacks and weaponization—not just for their own protection but also to limit the field for botnet recruitment and prevent service provider and corporate devices from being used in international cyber warfare.
Cyber insurance has become fiendishly difficult and extremely expensive to secure and maintain. Businesses looking to obtain cyber insurance would be wise to adhere to the principles of Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA).
With the current emphasis on Zero Trust, Fortune 1000 organizations should start looking beyond their Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions to properly manage their privilege sprawl. The strategy is ‘Zero Standing Privilege,’ (ZSP).
When we look back at the headline-making attacks of 2021, it’s clear that many are rooted in one fundamental issue: compromised identities. Stepping back and implementing identity security basics can help organizations prevent future hacks.
The quick transition to the Zero-Trust model is mainly fueled by remote work, cloud adoption and an increase in deploying devices in recent years. Having the right security solutions to support a Zero-Trust strategy is critical. Here are three keys to implement a Zero-Trust approach successfully.
Bypassing of security during the successful heist of the Bellagio vault came down to identity and perimeter defenses, the main vulnerabilities of network security—and exactly the weaknesses that zero trust methodology fortifies for organizations.
