Expected spending on IT security and risk management in 20201
Yet 66% of companies are still being breached1
This site will give you all the details so you can keep up with the geeks and apply the latest security best practices to your organization.
Clearly, the traditional approaches to security aren’t working.
Unfortunately, things won’t get easier in the future. The attack surface is constantly expanding and can no longer be defined by a logical perimeter. Systems and data that resided inside the network perimeter in the past are now being moved into the cloud. In fact, 90 percent of organizations are moving workloads to the cloud.
In today’s dynamics threatscape, you have to assume that bad actors already exist inside and outside your network.
Thus, trust needs to be removed from the equation.
There are many ways to start your journey, but there is only one
way that offers the biggest bang for your buck.
Zero Trust Privilege redefines legacy Privileged Access Management (PAM) for the modern enterprise IT threatscape.
Organizations must discard the old model of “trust but verify”, which relied on well-defined boundaries.
Today, identities include not just people but workloads, services and machines
It is important to know why privileged access is needed so it can be routed for approval.
We need to ensure access is only achieved through a clean source so as not to expose malware to servers or introduce infections during a connection to servers.
Grant just enough privilege to get the job done, granting access to the target resources needed and no more.
Audit logs are critical for evidence of compliance and are used in forensic analysis.
Zero Trust Privilege means knowing that even if the right credentials have been entered by a user, but the request comes in from a potentially risky location, then a stronger verification is needed to permit access.
This is perhaps the most significant and important benefit of Zero Trust Privilege. With 80% of breaches involving compromised privileged credentials and as much as one-third of breaches comitted by “trusted” insiders, a properly implemented Zero Trust Privilege strategy can help organizations reduce the risk of breaches by 50%.
Stringent data protection regulations and standards impose a complex and confusing array of requirements on organizations of every size, in every industry, around the world. Achieving, auditing, and maintaining compliance is an ongoing and increasingly resource-intensive activity for enterprises. Zero Trust Privilege provides organizations with the visibility they need to ensure continuous compliance.
According to a February 2019 Forbes article, “Zero Trust Privilege... is the force multiplier digital transformation initiatives need to reach their true potential.” Zero Trust Privilege enables organizations to accelerate their cloud, DevOps, IoT, and other digital transformation initiatives with confidence.
