Telecommuting: how to start with your zero trust strategy

This is how Zero Trust strategies gain strength in IT departments

The Zero Trust concept is based on the idea that organizations would not have to trust any internal or external entity that enters their perimeter. 

Remote work has caused many corporate devices to leave the perimeter and cyber threats to enter it. Perimeter security is no longer enough traditional. Today, it is vital to create a Zero Trust strategy to protect the company.

Millions of remote accesses outside the usual workplace, the extreme mobility of the employee favor security breaches in organizations.

With digital transformation, few companies are not using new cloud workflows and DevOps, as we accelerate the move to the cloud too We must strengthen safety in the workplace.

What is Zero Trust?

Zero Trust is a way of working, thinking and acting. Provides the necessary visibility to people who work in IT about everything they need to know to secure, manage and monitor both devices, users and network applications.

Because of telecommuting, applications, data, users and their devices are leaving the area of control of the company so the probability of being attacked is greater. That is why all companies should start with a Zero Trust strategy.

Also, with the rise of BYOD (bring your own device) “bring your own device”, the IT staff has less control over the devices than the users use to access corporate applications and data. The Traditional edge architectures are no longer effective.

after the pandemic 2 out of 5 companies they consider eliminate the use of email due to the high level of attacks and vulnerabilities it presents.

How does Zero Trust really work and how can I start implementing it??

It provides protected access so that companies can offer it to both their workers and their suppliers, consultants or partners. Traditional access technologies typically use many hardware and software devices to give network access to any user with the appropriate credentials. Studies show that the vast majority of breaches are caused by theft or misuse of these credentials.

The use of the cloud allows Zero Trust to be implemented since it only provides the entrance to the applications that the user needs and not to the entire network. This principle of least privilege is used for all existing devices.

Besides, the cloud based security integrates with existing authentication such as Okta or Microsoft Active Directory, or by providing proprietary solutions authentication with advanced security features. This authentication request decreases the probability that the attacker will have access to our network since he will have to steal two identities. The cloud increases security without the need for additional hardware or software.

The use of TRANSFER as a secure exchange tool of information will complement your ZERO TRUST strategy and allows you to enjoy the advantages that the digital workplace offers us, reducing the possibility of attacks.
