Buying Into Zero Trust? What You Need to Consider to Be Successful
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, October 11, 2018 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
As organizations take on the digital transformation, trends such as mobility, proliferation of SaaS applications and cloud infrastructure are driving up the number of connected entities and devices increasing the attack surface. With the spate of recent acquisitions in the market looking to change the way we approach security, we need to think beyond the technology and focus on the gaps we need to consider.
The Zero Trust paradigm is rapidly gaining popularity as a modern alternative to the traditional perimeter-based security, which can no longer provide sufficient protection against external and internal advanced cyberthreats. An IT infrastructure designed around this model treats every user, application or data source as untrusted and enforces strict security, access control and comprehensive auditing to ensure visibility and accountability of all user activities.
However, implementing the Zero Trust approach relies on a broad range of technologies and radically different organizational processes, so before buying into it, we need to consider the reality of what you need to be successful and the challenges it could present.
In this webinar, you will learn more about:
- Use cases for adopting Zero Trust models and new challenges that arise with them;
- How data classification gives you the ability to understand the level of risk and the level of trust to provide secure yet convenient access to sensitive data;
- How to account for changes in behavior patterns such as Mergers and Acquisitions or End of Year financials;
- Combining the controls for applications and data access in a way that complements a Zero Trust model.
In the first part of the webinar, KuppingerCole’s Lead Analyst Alexei Balaganski will present an overview and background of the Zero Trust approach. He’ll talk about the key factors in establishing trust and what affects it, including Identity Assurance, Behavior, and Risk.
In the second part, Stephen Mowll, Director Identity Governance & Lifecycle at RSA, will examine the key areas where Zero Trust looks to improve control and discuss what is really needed to achieve these benefits without compromising business convenience and agility.
