Shaping Cloud help you facilitate the latest of cybersecurity where implicit Trust is never given, but continuously evaluated.

Zero Trust Security

Traditionally, organisations have used the location, ownership, and control of physical assets as an implicit proxy for trust. This approach focuses on connecting and then authenticating. Meaning that it has been easy for systems to simply assume that an entity with the correct login credentials was exactly who they said they were, and granted access. This approach today is a flawed security model.

The focus and aim with Zero Trust focuses on authenticating and then connecting. With the key to extend trust and always assumed compromise.

Authenticators are used to establish trust through user and entity identity. Taking into account the context and even behaviours of a user to determine access. Risk-appropriate and least privilege access is then applied based upon the level of trust and in accordance of your organisations policies.  

With Zero Trust, everything is continuously monitored. Identifying anomalies and excessive risk ensuring around the clock security and protection of organisation assets.

Zero Trust is more than just the latest buzzword, it is a cybersecurity model and additional function used alongside Identity & Access Management (IAM) solutions. It is a paradigm whereby trust is never given implicitly but is continuously evaluated as a protection of resources.

Unsure in where to get started with Zero Trust Security?

Commission Shaping Cloud to develop a Roadmap for you.

Discover: Gain a clear and full understanding of the current state
Baseline: Agree a security baseline based on company standards, industry standards, and best practice
Assess: Identify gaps and improvements that need to be made to reach or exceed the agreed baseline
Roadmap: Report with strategy, recommendations, and remediation plan.

Interested? Book a call with us today.

We can then support you in implementing this Roadmap, and an on-going basis with our other services:

Deliver: Implement immediate actions, or support your team to implement as they progress through the remediation plan
Manage: Designed for you. Receive ongoing support and advice, regular assessments, highlighting new threats and how to protect against them, owning or supporting any threat response required.

The benefits of a Zero-Trust approach include:

  • Protection against compromised user accounts
  • Protection against threats within the local network (physical and virtual)
  • Faster response to threats, e.g. alerting from unusual behaviour on an account
  • Increased visibility of who is accessing what, which is really important when considering PII and DLP
  • Reduced complexity from automation and focusing on where security most matters
  • Reduced risks from remote workers
  • Improved used experience (SSO etc)
