IT Security is at a crossroads. Organisations are pushing forward with digital transformations, workplace enablement programs and greater support for hybrid and remote working. It’s an exciting time. But for IT teams, the journey has complications: legacy networks, fewer security professionals and growing cyber security threats, to name a few.
It’s time to make a choice: Keep doing the same and rely on traditional security architecture that assumes trust for the device or embrace Zero Trust Security.
In the UK alone, 34% of firms hit by ransomware had to close business operations temporarily due to the attack. And, since the disclosures of the vulnerabilities experienced by Microsoft Exchange, ransomware attacks have risen by 57%.
It’s user orientated rather than device orientated. Users must prove they’re authorised to access specific resources each time they log in. Zero Trust Security trusts nothing by default, and verification is required from everyone trying to access resources.
In this practical guide, we’ll focus on why organisations are turning to Zero Trust Security, common use cases that make Zero Trust a business necessity and share our roadmap for success.
It’s not a surprise: We’ve all seen the headline-grabbing figures on how much cybersecurity attacks cost each year, with some estimates putting the figure at a staggering $10.5 trillion USD annually by 2025.
Cybercrime tactics (Tactics, Techniques and Procedures) have improved over time resulting in more incidents with even more impact on society. With that idea in mind, you will have multiple reasons for finding a new direction in effective cybercrime mitigation tactics.
Mitigating threats is part of the puzzle. But organisations are also turning to Zero Trust Security to help solve business challenges.
Mitigating account breaches due to phishing or account leakage
Reduce network breaches through infrastructure vulnerabilities
Prevent vulnerabilities in internet facing applications from being exposed
Unsynchronised identity store
Bridge the gap between your IT resources and your human resources
Futureproof your infrastructure, as you transition to a hybrid world
Stop attacks from happening in the first place
Empower IT to work for the company again
Bring IT to users, without intrusion on your network or for your users
Keep private and business data separate
Your guide to easy, fast and non-intrusive zero trust security.
Like many companies, you’re likely already exploring how you can transition to Zero Trust security to decrease your attack surface, enhance security and reduce complexity.
We recently put together a new guide How G/On provides a giant leap into the Zero Trust era.
It covers the reasons companies are turning to zero trust, why the time for action is now and shares our Zero Trust success roadmap.
Zero Trust Security protects the enterprise by enforcing granular controls over user access permissions, allowing only access to applications defined and within defined security policies.
G/On can operate without agents on the endpoints, easily scales as traffic increases, and doesn’t require reconfiguring your network. This is what enables fast deployment and simplicity to manage; and removes all barriers for BYOD/CYOD/COPE device strategy.
