Zero trust security

What is zero trust security?

Embrace a new approach to cybersecurity

Zero trust is a security framework that assumes no trust in any user or device, both inside and outside of an organization’s network perimeter. It shifts from a traditional perimeter-based security model to a model that focuses on securing every user, device, and network resource, regardless of their location.

Key principles of zero trust security:

  • Trust no one by default:

    Always verify the identity and security posture of users, devices, and applications before granting access.

  • Limit access:

    Grant the minimum level of access required to perform specific tasks based on the principle of least privilege.

  • Contain:

    Divide the network into smaller, isolated segments to contain potential breaches and limit lateral movement.

  • Monitor:

    Continuously monitor user and device behavior, network traffic, and other indicators of compromise to detect and respond to threats in real time.

  • Assume breach:

    Accept that breaches can and will happen. Design security measures to minimize the impact of a breach and ensure a thorough incident response.

Benefits of zero trust:

  • Tighter security controls and reduced attack surface.
  • Improved visibility into network activity and potential threats.
  • Enhanced protection for remote and mobile users.
  • Increased flexibility and agility in adopting cloud services.
  • Better compliance with data protection regulations.

Implementing zero trust security

Implementing a zero trust architecture requires a comprehensive strategy that encompasses people, processes, and technology, including multi-factor authentication (MFA) for all users.
