Zero Trust for Social Impact

Zero Trust was first coined by former Principal Forrester Analyst, John Kingervag. Zero Trust is exactly what it sounds like, an environment where security is tight, and there is Zero Trust. An environment where identity and credentials must be confirmed via verification methods. In the world of information security, there are vulnerabilities to intellectual property, data, and so on. With this, there are opportunities everywhere for breaches, and Zero Trust platforms and approaches provide an enhanced layer of security.

 

Protecting Internal and External threats

The rise of Zero Trust comes from threats internally as well as externally to network security. The size and scope of companies that have fallen victim to breaches are varied, and we hope there is a significant reduction in breaches soon. When you hear about major financial companies and companies like Experian experiencing breaches, we can’t even question the need or rationale for Zero Trust. When we think of small business growth in their markets, we would never expect that growth potential to be limited by security concerns. Imagine the headline “Company X, a small business, was on their way to becoming the next Facebook until a security breach occurred.” Don’t let your small business be that headline. Instead, it should read “Zero Trust access for small business” or “How small businesses are implementing Zero Trust access.”

 

Defending against breaches

Several methods can be employed to defend against breaches. They are using a shared account with a password vault for your small business. This significantly reduces the risk of breaches by creating privileged access. The password vaults ensure. Trusted applications can access account credentials.

 

Another method of defending against breaches is secure remote access. This is where employees are given the least privilege access to the resources they need, and that’s it. With secure remote access in mind, it takes into account the Zero-Trust approach to grant access to additional resources that employees need not access.

 

In closing, if you manage sensitive data or information, Zero Trust security approaches are a no brainer for your business. Take the time, invest in securing your data. Take the precautions to provided limited secure access, so your employees can access only what they need. Once you go to Zero Trust, you will be glad you did!
