Ransomware and other cyberattacks are a real, continuous threat to organizations of every size across every industry. According to research by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), 76% of organizations were hit by ransomware in the last two years alone.
The likelihood of a ransomware breach is certain, making Zero Trust principles a necessity. And as we head to RSA Conference this year, ransomware risk mitigation and cyber resilience strategies are top of mind with attendees looking for ways to begin or continue their Zero Trust implementation plans.
Leverage platform integrations to achieve Zero Trust quickly and efficiently
Enterprises cannot afford to be in endless cycles of detection, response, and recovery that constantly impact operations and productivity. They need to focus on Zero Trust security strategies that prioritize cyber resilience with security capabilities that allow them to contain breaches before they happen and stop their ability to spread across networks.
It’s been said there is no “silver bullet” or specific product that allows a company to achieve Zero Trust – and that achieving Zero Trust is more like a journey than a destination. Every organization starts the Zero Trust process from their own unique place depending on the maturity of their current IT security posture. And oftentimes there are ways to integrate their existing security tools with other platforms to achieve their Zero Trust goals.
One of the best things about RSA is learning how others have achieved their security objectives. It’s an opportunity to be exposed to new information or different ways to approach a problem.
Use RSAC to ask the tough questions about Zero Trust
With that in mind, as we walk the conference floor next week, it’s likely that we will see many Zero Trust “silver bullets.” As practitioners, it's important to leverage the integrations that are available with your existing investments to see measurable improvements in your security posture.
Many of us have the goal of identifying a broad range of products and services to help develop, implement, and/or mature a Zero Trust strategy. This results from spending the time asking vendors tough questions, so we can leave the conference with more knowledge than we had when we arrived.
Build a Zero Trust strategy with IBM Security's Application Visibility and Segmentation (AVS) solution — powered by Illumio
Illumio has collaborated with IBM Security over the past two years to help organizations think through, implement, and improve their security posture.
Last year, IBM launched the Application Visibility and Segmentation (AVS) services, powered by the Illumio Zero Trust Segmentation Platform. With AVS, clients can leverage IBM's security services expertise and IBM X-Force Protection Platform to manage existing workloads, enforcement policies, and changes in applications across environments. Combined with the Illumio ZTS Platform, IBM's customers can benefit from application visibility and ransomware resilience, environmental separation, critical infrastructure protection, and high-value asset protection.
