Are You Getting the Most Out of Your Zero Trust Strategy?

Nathanael Iversen, Chief Evangelist

It’s easier than ever for hackers to gain access to and move quickly across your network.  

Digital transformation in the last few years has dramatically expanded the attack surface. To cope with the move to remote work and increasing migration to the cloud, many IT environments have shifted from on-premises to hybrid, hyper-connected networks.  

In turn, cyberattacks are at an all-time high, taking advantage of the vulnerabilities left by this rapid transformation.  

“Despite record-breaking security spending, we continue to see incredibly impactful breaches across industries,” said PJ Kirner, CTO and co-founder at Illumio. 

The traditional tools built to protect the perimeter just aren’t working – new, perimeter-less environments require a new kind of security strategy. Organizations are increasingly turning to Zero Trust security.

Segmentation proves essential for Zero Trust

Zero Trust tells organizations to take on an “assume breach” mindset that expects an attack at any moment. Instead of attempting the impossible task of keeping attackers out, Zero Trust shifts focus to stopping the spread of an attack and containing breaches using Zero Trust Segmentation.

“Given today’s widening attack surface, breaches are bound to happen,” said John Grady, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “That’s why it’s important for organizations to assume breach and adopt Zero Trust strategies like Zero Trust Segmentation.” 

The Zero Trust Impact Assessment 

Illumio recently released research conducted by ESG in the Zero Trust Impact Report, revealing the quantifiable security and business impact Zero Trust Segmentation has on organizations.  
 
You can now take the Zero Trust Impact Assessment to see how your Zero Trust maturity and strategy compares to the 1,000 security professionals surveyed in the report. The assessment will strengthen your understanding of your organization’s overall security posture and arm you with data to support investments in Zero Trust Segmentation. 

“As the economy shifts, it’s important for organizations to understand and assess their attack surface and associated risk, in order to drive optimized security spending,” said Kirner. 

By answering a few simple questions, you'll receive a personal report of your organization’s Zero Trust maturity level and recommendations on areas to prioritize and improve.
