The rise of remote work and the adoption of cloud solutions has complicated IT security by blurring the network perimeter. The use of unsecured personal devices and networks for work has introduced new security challenges. In this scenario, taking the traditional perimeter security approach of trusting all users and entities within your network will weaken security.
A Zero trust approach enables your IT teams to control access to your networks, applications, and data. It combines techniques like identity verification, endpoint security, and least privilege controls to mitigate the risk of cyberattacks and limit attackers' access in the event of a data breach. To adopt a Zero Trust security model, your IT team needs to:
Having strong perimeter, endpoint, and access control security measures are great for mitigating the risk of a cyberattack. However, to ensure complete protection for your organization, you need to track critical events in your network in real-time to defend against persistent threats and to mitigate attacks.
To detect and respond to security incidents and vulnerabilities before serious damage is done, your IT team needs to:
The adoption of bring your own device (BYOD) policies at workplaces and the pandemic-induced mass shift to remote work have made monitoring and managing endpoints a major challenge for IT teams. Users expect to be able to complete their work on any device at any location at any time. Meanwhile, business and regulatory requirements require IT teams to secure these endpoints against a wide variety of threats.
To give your users the freedom to work anytime, anywhere without compromising on security or regulatory requirements, your IT team needs to:
No matter the industry, an organization's network is a vital part of its day-to-day operations. A robust network security infrastructure is helpful in maintaining a secure and stable network. A lapse in network security can not only result in network downtime but also in data theft, both of which can have serious repercussions on employee productivity and business operations. In this rapidly changing security ecosystem, there's an inherent need for IT admins to be extremely agile to maintain an effective security posture.
To prevent unplanned downtime and protect against threats to your network, your IT team needs to:
Whether it affects customer information, trade secrets, or other sensitive data, a data breach can cause a lot of harm to your organization, damaging its reputation and causing major financial losses. This is why it's imperative that every employee does their best to ensure the security and privacy of organizational data. However, employees are only human and can make mistakes. They may even fall prey to social engineering attacks.
To mitigate the risks posed by social engineering attacks and other cyberthreats to your organization's data, your IT team needs to:
