Building zero trust for a security-conscious enterprise

Securing your company’s data is essential for its success. As attacks become increasingly sophisticated and ransomware attacks take down major institutions, more companies are adopting a zero-trust security posture.

Businesses that continue to rely on a perimeter “castle-and-moat” defense leave themselves at risk. One breach could mean complete access to your data. Zero trust security does what it says, requiring authentication for every user or device trying to access your network.

Discover what zero trust is all about and why it should matter to you.

Implementing zero trust security architecture is not easy.

ZERO TRUST

What is zero trust?

Zero trust is a security framework methodology that leverages best practices to verify every user or device, both inside and outside of an organization’s network perimeter.

More traditional, perimeter-based security models operate by trusting everyone with access to your network. The drawback is that it gives free reign over your network to bad actors who obtain access. A zero trust model instead focuses on securing every user, device, and network resource, regardless of location.

BENEFITS

Benefits of zero trust security

Zero trust = reduced risk + more control

Increased risk and new threats to network security means you need solutions tailored to your business.

Tighter security controls

Continuously monitor who gets in and who does not.

 

Secure cloud service adoption

Data and applications remain secure, even in the Cloud.

Improve insights into activity and threats

Monitor all activity for your systems and devices.

Better regulatory compliance

Increased security measures improve your company’s defense posture.

Enhanced protection

Security that assumes nobody is implicitly trusted means ongoing authentication.

OUR APPROACH

Why CBTS?

CBTS has established its zero-trust security access model on the idea that trust is verified and not assumed. We continuously assess the posture of users, devices, and applications and adjust your access accordingly. Security is more than a one-size-fits-all proposition, even within the same enterprise environment.

We help you choose the layers and process points that work for your environment, monitor access to your network based on your policies, and, in the event of a breach, help contain the spread by default.

“For those of you thinking strategically, you might want to hold off on upgrading your VPN this budget year or next, and think instead of using a zero-trust solution for your remote workforce.”

– John Bruggeman, Consulting CISO
