What is Zero Trust?
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.
An “assume breach” mentality delivers modern security
Starting with the premise that the unexpected can happen at any time drives the following behaviors:
Ensure that every interaction on the network is accounted for
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?
- 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
