What is Zero Trust Architecture? 9 Steps to Implementation

As more companies migrate to the cloud, the way that companies protect data changes as well. In a traditional on-premises network architecture, companies were able to follow the “trust but verify” philosophy. However, protecting cloud data needs to take the “never trust always verify” approach. Understanding what a Zero Trust Architecture is and how to implement one can help enhance security.

Four Steps to Modernizing Government Cybersecurity with Zero Trust based on the Executive Order

The pandemic has accelerated digital transformation and telework on a scale never seen before. Employees are working from anywhere and collaboration in the cloud has skyrocketed. But this new environment has expanded the cyber attack surface, compromising critical U.S. infrastructure and lives of our citizens. The recent slew of major cyber attacks including SolarWinds, Microsoft Exchange and Colonial Pipeline, has moved cybersecurity improvements to the top of the agenda for the U.S.

Use ZTNA to address requirements VPNs cannot. Here's why.

I recently hopped on the Endpoint Enigma podcast to talk about virtual private networks (VPNs) and how they’ve been extended beyond their original use case of connecting remote laptops to your corporate network. Even in this new world where people are using personal devices and cloud apps, VPN continues to be the go-to solution for remote access and cloud access. After my conversation with Hank Schless, I was inspired to put some additional thoughts about VPN on paper.

5 Top Tips for Cloud Security from Enterprise CISOs

The Financial Times hosted an excellent event recently, at which I joined Naina Bhattacharya, CISO for Danone; Manish Chandela, Group CISO for Unipart and Florence Mottay, Global CISO for Ahold Delhaize, to discuss cloud security. The FT’s Dan Thomas moderated and the panellists all shared some excellent and candid insights into cloud threats and security strategies within their organisations.

The Right Steps to SASE: Extend Zero Trust to Data Protection and Private Access

The following is an excerpt from Netskope’s recent book Designing a SASE Architecture for Dummies. This is the fifth in a series of seven posts detailing a set of incremental steps for implementing a well-functioning SASE architecture. Now that your organization is smarter about its traffic, able to see what’s going on, and able to enforce policies to secure its data, you can realize the promise of a remote-first workforce.

How Zero Trust architecture improves the organization's network security

In the cybersecurity field, Zero Trust is becoming a widely used model. Data breaches taught organizations to stay cautious regarding security, especially when it comes to information protection - and a Zero Trust model may be the best option. Nobody, including clients inside the firewall, should be trusted, per Zero Trust. Internal threats are a huge concern. And for many attackers, penetrating the barrier is a simple operation, thanks to easy access to leaked credentials.

A Look at a Zero Trust Strategy for the Remote Workforce

If you are new to the security world, it is fair to ask yourself, “Isn’t access to data and systems always conditional? Isn’t it always granted to someone who has access to the credentials (ID and password)?” True enough, but in totality, the approach to managing access encompasses a broader spectrum of privacy policies. These policies include a mix of different strategies that can be applied based on an organization’s security vulnerabilities.
