Network Trust: How to Maintain and Establish it in Your Perimeter
Everyone has heard about “the expanding attack surface” and the “ever-increasing amounts of data;” about employees wanting to access email on their own devices (anywhere, anytime) and all the emerging tech – Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to name a few – that is supposed to fix increasing cybersecurity concerns. While the evolution of ML and AI continues, there’s an immediate, helpful and game-changing cybersecurity strategy: Zero Trust.
In the past, when approaching security posture, the main concern was generally about blocking a potential attacker who sits outside your network from getting inside your network (often referred to as perimeter defense). While this is an important security issue to address, there is an increasingly common, concerning paradigm. It is protecting your sensitive data from a potential breach from the inside: The ability to create a Zero Trust infrastructure.
Trust no one and nothing
By definition, Zero Trust means that by default, you do not trust any entity on the network including users, devices and applications. By establishing trust nothing and no one boundaries, you are in essence compartmentalizing segments of your network. This allows you to control, in a positive way, who has access to critical resources, limit user access, control the applications being used and scan for any potential threats as the user accesses any allowed resources. Doing so is another step in reducing the exposure of vulnerable systems and preventing the lateral movement of malware throughout your network.
Some of the concepts around Zero Trust networks are:
Once this Zero Trust network is established, you can prevent things like the exfiltration of sensitive data by someone internal who shouldn’t have access to it in the first place. In addition, you’ll have better malware containment throughout the network. It also may help in meeting specific compliance recommendations.
Why think about implementing Zero Trust?
The enemy is getting smarter and faster. A Zero Trust network is safer, more agile and can quickly adjust to new business initiatives such as geographic expansions, cloud services adoptions, bringing on and integrating suppliers, and faster new customer onboarding.
