How G/On provides a giant leap into the Zero Trust era

The Time is Now for Zero Trust Security

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%.


Why Zero Trust?

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.

Why Companies are Turning to Zero Trust

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.

How G/On provides a giant leap into the Zero Trust era

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.


G/On: designed on three pillars

Software Defined Perimeter

  • Network resources are made inaccessible by default
  • Makes the application infrastructure invisible from the internet
  • Immediate reduction of attack surface
  • Mitigates breach risks and prevents threats

Identity Centric

  • No device authentication
  • Authentication before access
  • Embedded mutual multi-factor authentication 
  • The principle of least privilege
  • All data is encrypted and protected. End-to-end encryption provides the gold-standard for protecting communication


  • No need to change the existing IT infrastructure (site-to-site VPN and networks)
  • No installation and no configuration required, no elevated rights to run
  • Supports BYOD policy
  • No endpoint checking required - policies built-in solution
  • Scalable, promotes data protection and prevents access to personal data

Soliton's Zero Trust Security: G/On

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.
