Zero Trust

Could zero trust secure your business data and enhance the integrity of your network. We certainly think it has the potential to do just that.

When we think about our business networks in today’s ever-changing environment, we see that the once fixed perimeter around our systems and data has dissolved with workers increasingly demanding access from any location, at any time and from any device. This makes policing access more difficult and risks the security of your vital data and the integrity of your network.

That’s where zero-trust steps in. The guiding principle is that no one, no device and no location are allowed access by default – i.e. “never trust, always verify”. Instead, by identifying individual users at the time of access rather than devices and locations, we can allow the correct level of access to that individual no matter how, where, when or from what device they want to connect (inside or outside your business network). This authority is continually monitored and assessed and adapted as necessary.

The benefit to implementing a Zero Trust approach is to enable your users to access the tools and resources they need without adding further friction. Further, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Your existing resources can be adapted and augmented with cloud-based technologies to ensure that you remain secure whilst opening up access to the right people.

Coronavirus means more and more of your workforce are working from remote locations for an indeterminate amount of time (with Government sources suggesting that sporadic periods of lockdown might be required for up to the next two years), Zero Trust might be the solution your company needs to remain competitive, secure and open for business.
