Businesses today are dealing with multi-cloud environments, evolving cyber threats, and a lack of visibility that make the traditional old-school perimeter-based security model insufficient. Securing access has become increasingly complex, particularly in a hybrid work environment where everyone is considered an insider. Futurism is coming to GISEC GLOBAL 2023 in Dubai to unravel cutting-edge Zero Trust Security Solutions to help organizations secure their hybrid and multi IT environment and infrastructure.
To remain resilient in today’s fast-evolving threat landscape where attackers are coming up with advanced and sophisticated attack tactics, organizations and security experts need to adopt a Zero Trust security model. However, implementing Zero Trust policies can be challenging, especially in mixed IT environments, and there is a risk of negatively impacting productivity and user experience. In this blog, we dive deep into why Zero Trust is the need of the hour for businesses to secure multi-environment and hybrid IT infrastructure. It will also talk about the best approach to implementing zero trust and the key requirements and benefits of the same to ensure its success while frustrating attackers, and not the users.
Today, businesses are dealing with an ever-growing number of endpoints, devices, and cloud-based applications/networks. With this increasing complexity comes a greater need for effective security measures to protect sensitive data and prevent breaches. Enter Zero Trust Security – a security model that has gained immense popularity in recent years, especially in multi-environment IT setups. Get in touch with our security experts and Digital Transformation (DX) leadership team to explore the Zero Trust Security approach at GISEC GLOBAL 2023 in Dubai.
Zero Trust is a security model that operates on the principle of “never trust, always verify.” In other terms, Zero Trust aims to simplify risk and threat management by eliminating implicit trust. Under this model, no device or user is granted access to a network or application without first being thoroughly authenticated and authorized. This approach differs from traditional security models, which typically assume that everything inside a network is already trusted and only focus on defending against external threats.
A Zero Trust Security model operates on the assumption that any device or user could be a potential threat and requires continuous monitoring and verification of all users, devices, and applications. This approach is particularly crucial in multi-environment IT setups where data is stored across multiple clouds, networks, and devices.
Implementing Zero Trust Security in multi-environment IT setups requires a structured approach that involves several key steps:
Identify sensitive data and applications: Businesses need to identify the data and applications that require protection and prioritize them accordingly.
Implement strong authentication: Strong authentication mechanisms such as multi-factor authentication (MFA) and single sign-on (SSO) should be implemented to ensure that only verified users and devices can access sensitive data and applications.
Implement micro-segmentation: Micro-segmentation involves dividing a network into smaller segments and limiting access to each segment based on the user’s role and the data’s sensitivity. This approach makes it more difficult for attackers to move laterally within a network.
Monitor and analyze: Zero Trust Security requires continuous monitoring and analysis of network activity to detect and respond to security threats promptly. Our security experts will be more than happy to discuss the various implementation options for Zero Trust Security for your organization at GISEC GLOBAL 2023 in Dubai.
In today’s complex multi-environment IT setups, businesses need to adopt a security model that offers better visibility, control, and protection against both insider as well as external threats. Zero Trust Security offers a promising approach that can help businesses achieve these goals. By implementing strong authentication, advance threat detection, micro-segmentation, and continuous monitoring, businesses can significantly reduce the risk of data breaches and improve compliance with regulatory standards.
