Trust No One! Verify and Shadow Everything!

Organizations are opting to a Zero-Trust Strategy to safeguard their data and systems more than ever. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, zero trust security is essential for every organization, regardless of the size or industry.

Zero Trust Isn’t a Tool, It’s a Framework!

A Zero-Trust Model can radically improve your organization’s security posture and minimize operational overhead by eliminating the sole reliance on perimeter-based protection. Ideally, a zero-trust security implementation should help organizations protect the network from advanced threats and improve compliance with standards like GDPR, FISMA, PCI, HIPAA, and CCPA.

According to industry experts, eighty-three percent of security and risk experts consider zero trust to be a significant strategy for their organizations, with 80 percent planning to implement it by 2022. Organizations and the CISOs who govern them are starting to recognize that implementing zero trust does not have to be expensive and complicated.

Top 5 Reasons to choose Zero Trust Security

Don’t Trust Blindly on Third-Party SaaS and PaaS Applications - Every company employs applications created by another company, and all these applications are trusted since their developer is a reputable and well-known company. However, software flaws or a breach of the developer's systems, on the other hand, might transform these trusted apps into a possible attack surface for cybercriminals.

Even Though Device Is Managed, Be Sure About It - Organizations by default, manage their devices to secure the control over the endpoints of the employees. But these device management tools doesn’t grant any real-time visibility into the risk levels of the endpoint.

BYOD is Not as Secure as Work Devices - Employer-owned laptops and phones are traditionally managed, patched, and kept up to date with security tools and policies. However, with everyone working remotely, employees may forget the basic cyber hygiene skills and start to use their own devices to access work networks or apps.

Antivirus Doesn’t Secure Completely - Attackers often use more sophisticated tactics like creating backdoors into infrastructure via internet-facing remote access systems such as remote desktop protocol (RDP) or virtual private network (VPN). They can also obtain access to an endpoint by exploiting weaknesses in operating systems or apps.

Perimeter Security Is Obsolete - Generally, IT organizations considered that anything on their networks was safe and secure. For a container environment, these perimeter security solutions are a disaster waiting to happen. Consequently, systems designed to resist external threats (trojan file) are quite vulnerable.

Adopting The Zero-Trust Mindset

Zero trust solves several security problems arising from remote and hybrid models. For example, by never trusting a user or device without the appropriate credentials, organizations can:

  • Reinforce their Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies
  • Mitigate credential theft, brute force attacks, and insider threat risks
  • Improve breach detection & vulnerability management
  • Reduce the likelihood that devices with malware or ransomware

Implement Zero-Trust in Workplace

Organizations seeking to implement a Zero Trust security framework must address the following:

  • Ensure the Endpoint Security
  • Identify Sensitive Data
  • Limit and Control Access
  • Always Authenticate, verify, and repeat
  • Detect Threats
  • Implement strong measures for user and device authentication

CD Bytes!

As Zero trust becomes the foundation of more hybrid cloud integrations, the future of Zero Trust is to focus more on endpoint security, improving IAM effectiveness, hybrid cloud security, and optimizing patch management to enhance the least privileged access.
