Zero Trust is a modern security framework that assumes every movement within a corporate firewall is a breach until verified. Across the board, access must be authenticated and authorized before a user is granted entry.
How can this security model work for you? Let’s find out.
Adapt to your environment
Even if built similarly, the nuances of each company’s technology infrastructure is unique. Before implementing Zero Trust, it’s essential to take inventory of your environment so the IT security team can design and implement infrastructure that addresses your particular needs. With proper knowledge of users, devices, applications and services, we can restrict lateral movement, secure administrators’ accounts and create authentication protocols that secure your setup.
Improve daily user experience
Your staff won’t need to worry that Zero Trust security means more passwords to remember. Whew. Security teams can deploy single sign-on tools that don’t annoy users and protect against password mismanagement. With a well-designed and secure infrastructure, staff will notice document retrieval, for example, is faster to access. A happy coincidence.
Bolster remote work
Before hybrid environments were the norm, network security was routed through the office infrastructure. When employees began to work remotely, traffic was still funneled through the office, throttling performance and annoying users. Zero Trust provides a framework — like gating access — that prevents companies from dropping security levels to accommodate remote staff.
