Securing Identity with Zero Trust
Zero Trust is not a product, it’s a principle. And, it starts with secure access.
Cloud applications and the mobile workforce have redefined the security perimeter. Employees are bringing their own devices and working remotely from anywhere. Data is being accessed both inside and outside the corporate network and shared with external collaborators such as partners and contractors. Corporate applications and data are moving from on-premises to hybrid and cloud environments. Organisations can no longer rely on traditional network controls for security. Controls need to move to where the data is: on devices, inside apps, and with partners.
Identities, representing people, services, or devices, are the common dominator across today's many applications, endpoints, and networks. In the Zero Trust security model, they function as a powerful, flexible, and granular way to control access to data.
Per Zero Trust principle, before an identity attempts to access a resource, organisations must:
- Verify the identity with strong authentication
- Ensure access is compliant and typical for that identity
- Follows least privilege access principles
Once the identity has been verified, we can control that identity's access to resources based on organisation policies, on-going risk analysis, and other tools.
