Deloitte has launched Zero Trust Access to help enterprises better secure communications between users, devices, and business applications ‌from any location.

The managed service features a cloud-native approach and builds on device-level secure microcontainer technology. The solution is inherently scalable, resilient, agile, and secure, according to Deloitte.

Notably, Zero Trust Access helps businesses administer least privilege through dynamic access control to enterprise assets. With its ephemeral connectivity, conditional access and continuous authorization, the solution presents as a better alternative to high-expenditure remote access solutions.

“The Zero Trust concept commits to removing implicit trust within an information technology (IT) ecosystem and replacing it with a risk-based approach to accessing organizational resources across identities, workloads, data, networks and devices. This trend is gaining momentum, given legacy approaches to security architecture are no longer suitable to secure the ubiquitous nature of the modern enterprise,” explained Deloitte.

"As perimeter-based approaches are no longer suitable to secure the modern enterprise, many organizations are working to enhance protection for their IT ecosystems via zero trust," said Andrew Rafla, Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory's zero trust offering leader and principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP.

"Zero Trust Access was built as a turnkey managed service helping ourselves and our clients accelerate adoption of this transformative security framework. Our goal was to create a cost-effective solution that can be delivered standalone or complementary to a broader ecosystem and ultimately help decrease the burden on IT and security teams who likely need to manage multiple heterogeneous solutions to achieve similar outcomes," added Rafla.
