- The major strategic goal of cyber security in the digital age is to combat and mitigate data breaches. A company’s data is its most valuable asset to protect.
- The Zero-Trust model for more effective security is based on the following pillars
Automation and Orchestration
A zero trust platform uses technologies that enable automation and orchestration. Analytics in this area has shown how important it is for companies and security teams to leverage tools and technologies that enable automation and orchestration across the enterprise. It must be possible for leading providers of a zero-trust platform to be able to integrate into other systems to use complementary security information or pass on useful data. Conversely, companies must be able to automate their business processes.
Zero Trust Simplified
- Access to all resources and assets is secure and location-independent. These include applications, network drives or USB devices. This results in the requirement to authenticate all users and applications and to encrypt data traffic.
- Access control is based on the principle: Does a user need this application for his daily work and what rights do they have? (e.g. reading, writing, full access).
- All traffic must be checked.
- The infrastructure is designed to check all activity and trust nothing and no one.
