Agencies have traditionally operated off the assumption that if the perimeter is secure, their data is too. But in a distributed environment, that isn’t necessarily the case.
Zero trust can dramatically elevate agencies’ cyberdefenses from their legacy security architectures. And industry expert shared three ways agencies can stop lateral cyberattacks.
Agencies can’t protect all systems and data equally. They need to protect things most significant to them through a zero-trust model.
Even with the sudden shift of circumstance, security experts had already foreseen the eventual need for distributed, remotely applied security.
SASE helps agencies strengthen security as more users, data and applications move outside the traditional network perimeter.
There are six core capabilities of zero trust that agencies can include to modernize their security environments.
Identity and access management (IAM) is critical to helping agencies navigate this new normal.
Clearly, agencies need to reduce the chaos and improve security. But they also need to ensure their cyber strategy does not hinder employee productivity.
Zero trust is not just a simple security solution, but a complex philosophy for improving cyber defenses. Are you communicating those changes to employees?
