Securing a remote workforce with a zero-trust strategy

Why zero-trust is the latest foundational cyber security construct for the modern workplace

whitepaper

The sudden surge in remote work and direct-to-cloud consumption of SaaS applications are putting pressure on the role of the physical security perimeter to business applications. Users need access to on-premises applications from multiple locations, and IT and cyber security teams have an imperative to provide secure access to these critical resources across a hybrid cloud environment. 

With this challenge comes the need to reevaluate existing approaches to and controls of the perimeter. Organisations are moving away from the traditional method of using Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) because the way VPNs require a connection between the corporate network and the individual’s device allows for threats to be introduced through unmanaged devices. 

This whitepaper champions zero-trust as the perfect approach for securing access while also providing operational efficiency. It can secure both cloud and on-premises applications with its improved mobility, threat detection, and data-loss prevention. Download this whitepaper for a framework to successfully implement a zero-trust strategy.
