Zero Trust – The security paradigm for the modern organization

Illumio delivers a foundational component of any Zero Trust architecture – Zero Trust Segmentation

What is Zero Trust?

The attack surface is expanding, and threat actors are getting increasingly sophisticated and targeted, with breaches ever more catastrophic.

Detection, response, and recovery are no longer sufficient - containment is essential.

Effective containment begins with an "assume breach" mindset which in turn drives a least-privilege approach to building security controls - this is Zero Trust.

Why Zero Trust now?

Accelerated adoption of digital services needs a security approach that is equally as agile.

Hyperconnectivity means that a single compromise can test the cyber resilience of the entire organization.

Business transformation makes an "assume trust" model obsolete.

An “assume breach” mentality delivers modern security

Starting with the premise that the unexpected can happen at any time drives the following behaviors:

Visibility everywhere

Ensure that every interaction on the network is accounted for

Least-privilege access

Prevent unexpected breaches from propagating

Adaptability and consistency

Guarantee consistent network behavior everywhere

A proactive posture

Always be on the lookout for an attack

These are the principles of Zero Trust security and are essential in supporting modern business needs.

What is a Zero Trust architecture?

NIST defines the following tenets for any Zero Trust architecture:
  • Everything (data, users, devices, etc.) is considered to be a resource
  • All communications are secured regardless of location
  • Access to individual resources is granted on a per-session basis
  • Access to resources is governed by dynamic policy
  • Integrity and security posture of all enterprise-owned assets are monitored
  • Authentication and authorization are strictly enforced before access is granted
  • Constantly monitor the state and activity of resources to improve their security posture

Zero Trust Segmentation applies these tenets by:

Continually visualizing how workloads and devices are communicating

Creating granular policies that only allow wanted and necessary communication

Automatically isolating breaches by restricting lateral movement proactively or during an active attack
