This webinar brings to you a potential solution to problems faced by organizations in terms of cybersecurity and how a zero-trust approach could solve these problems. The number of IP-enabled connected devices is growing, making them vulnerable to breaches that could potentially have an impact on the effectiveness of the device. This vulnerability increases as devices and equipment are increasingly becoming connected via the network to other devices, and organisation networks.
The zero-trust architecture is a security concept that takes the far-sighted approach to verifying services, devices and individual users, rather than trusting them by default. It asserts that we should verify everything and everyone and trust no one. A zero-trust model supports micro-segmentation, which is a fundamental principle of cybersecurity. It enables us to contain potential threats and not let them spread throughout the enterprise.
During the webinar, we covered topics such as:
- Traditional Security Models
- Drawbacks of the traditional perimeter security model
- Introduction to Zero Trust
- Components of the Zero Trust Architecture
- Implementation and scope of Zero Trust
- Benefits of Zero Trust Architecture
The software defined perimeter (SDP) architecture can be used to implement the zero-trust model while allowing organisations to continue using traditional implementations. The important factor to consider while designing a zero-trust framework in the industry is that it should be secured but not so restrictive that it interrupts business goal. An organisation might be hesitant to move to a zero-trust architecture considering the financial aspects, the implementation efforts and the time that might be required, as they cannot risk business for too long. So, it is always better to make a start on transitioning towards a zero-trust architecture than to not move forward at all.
