Aerobyte Cyber: Redefining the Standard of Zero Trust Security

Top 10 Zero Trust Security Solution Companies - 2021

Navigating the expansion of traditional workforces, ubiquity of security threats and the urgency to accelerate digital transformation efforts has left organizations vulnerable. This paradigm shift has forever changed the traditional view of ‘trusted network’ and paved the way for a zero trust architecture rooted in the concept of “never trust, always verify.”

The Zero Trust security framework is becoming an essential tool in the CISO’s arsenal, as it forces teams to rethink the way network access works and more closely scrutinize the products they rely upon. In 2022, experts say, security teams must better understand Zero Trust methodologies and products and be ready to implement them. Many of them got a head start during the pandemic: The crisis prompted 60 percent of enterprises to accelerate their adoption of Zero Trust.

Zero trust isn't a silver bullet for ransomware, but if implemented well, it can help create a much more robust security defense against ransomware attacks. This is because, fundamentally, human error is the root cause of all cyberattacks, and zero trust puts the spotlight back on user identity and access management. Zero trust also helps reduce the attack surface significantly as internal and external users only have access to limited resources and all other resources are completely hidden away. Additionally, zero trust provides monitoring, detection, and threat inspection capabilities, which are necessary to prevent ransomware attacks and exfiltration of sensitive data.

Zero trust is a strategy much like digital transformation. It needs a commitment from the entire organization (not just IT teams); it requires a change in mindset and a radical shift in architectural approach; it needs to be executed with care and a great deal of thought, keeping a long-term perspective in mind; and, finally, it must be a perpetual, evolving process that changes in line with the evolving threat landscape. Nearly half of cybersecurity professionals still lack confidence in applying the zero-trust model and rightfully so—one wrong move can leave the organization in a worse position. That said, businesses that implement zero trust successfully will be in a much stronger position to combat evolving threats like ransomware and emerge as a truly cyber-resilient organization.
