Zero Trust

Zero Trust is a security framework that implements the principal of “least privilege” by dynamically verifying identity and assessing the risk of each transaction. It improves an organization's capability to protect against today’s sophisticated attacks — both outside and inside the network.

Why the demand for Zero Trust?

As organizations leverage cloud services and mobility, it broadens their attack surface and presents greater security risks. A new security approach is needed to better protect workloads outside of an organization’s traditional controls. By implementing Zero Trust across all networks — including public and private clouds — it allows security teams to gain back control and improve visibility. 

How do I get started?

Many organizations are unsure of how to approach implementing a Zero Trust security model. Our team of experts can help every step of the way — from understanding key concepts to selecting the right technology — no matter the starting point. Explore below how our phased approach to adopting Zero Trust allows organizations to establish a global strategy and technical roadmap. 


The first step is solidifying a Zero Trust strategy and assessing the risks and maturity of your current approach. Our team can help your organization lay the foundation for a successful adoption through our briefings, assessments, workshops and consulting offerings.


Next, it’s important to determine what’s needed to support your organization’s Zero Trust strategy. Our technical design experts can help identify the scope, key technologies and investments needed for a solution. A strategic roadmap will identify the key activities and stakeholders required for a successful journey.


Solution implementation is the next step in order. Companies often struggle to implement Enterprise Segmentation and Zero Trust because of the amount of complexity, the limitless number of technical variables present in brownfield environments, and a lack of staffing and resources. Our experts can help simplify this complexity by developing a plan that allows for more agile workflows, leading to shorter implementations.


After implementing your Zero Trust plan and architecture, it’s crucial to continue optimizing. Our experts can help operationalize, automate, monitor and manage your investment. A properly designed Zero Trust Architecture must include key lifecycle elements — from automation to run books — that ensure operational efficiencies.
