Top-notch security controls have always been top of mind for the federal government. Agencies must proactively monitor and innovate their security measures to stay two steps ahead of the world’s smartest adversaries and cybercriminals—who never take a day off.
A zero-trust security model can help with that.
By treating identity access points as the new perimeter, agencies can protect both the interior and exterior of their network with a zero-trust mentality.
Zero trust is the opposite of traditional security models—in which it was assumed that if someone has credentials to access the network, they can be trusted anywhere inside the perimeter. The reality is that this assumption no longer holds true, thanks to increased mobility, BYOD (bring your own device), IoT, cloud adoption, and increased collaboration, to name a few.
The zero-trust model offers a holistic view of network security driven by technology that spots trends, identifies weaknesses, and raises alarms much faster than traditional models–helping cybersecurity professionals get in front of the bad guys to stop threats before they become a breach.
