Implement zero trust approach based device control

What is Zero Trust?

Traditional security models work on the assumption that everything inside an organization can be trusted, thereby providing more opportunities for insider attacks. A Zero Trust approach continuously assesses trust every time a device requests access to your endpoint.

How Device Control Plus implements Zero Trust?

Device Control Plus offers a Trusted Device List feature, allowing you to add devices that you trust to the list.

Authorize devices in a few clicks.

From adding existing devices to importing multiple new devices, create a trusted device list in a flash. Device Control Plus allows you to add new devices simply by specifying the device instance path of that device. If you wish to add multiple new devices at once, you can simply import a CSV file containing the device instance paths of all the devices to be trusted. Also, you can trust a group of similar devices without having to mention individual device instance paths by specifying a common wildcard-based pattern.

Curate specific trusted device lists.

One size doesn't fit all. Create multiple trusted device lists for devices and users across your network based on their roles and tasks. For instance, Zero Trust allows you to facilitate Bring Your Own Device policies in your enterprise on your own terms.

Benefits of device control based on zero trust.

Understand access needs.

You can define trust based on what the device is, who the user is, and what access they require. With Zero Trust, any device that is identified as untrusted is prevented from communicating with your endpoint until it is trusted.

Decrease risk by monitoring device traffic.

With the universality of USB devices, anyone can plug anything into your computer ports. If you can't see your endpoints, you can't control them. With Zero Trust approach, any device that connects to your endpoint is first identified if it is a trusted device or not. For an untrusted device, the access will be denied and you will receive an alert about the blocked device immediately.

Lower the potential for a breach.

Often times when attackers find a point of infiltration, they try to move deep into your network to locate sensitive data. Zero Trust stops lateral movement of data, minimizing the point of exfiltration. Additionally, even when trusted and approved, connection is restricted only to those computers and users that have authorize to access.

Increase your business' agility.

With today's businesses operating at warp speed, port-based security controls can be stagnant when compared. Blocking USB ports in case of malicious intrusion can cause productivity loss; instead, utilize a Zero Trust model to ensure smooth operation of your business as it seamlessly runs in the background without interference.

Stay independent of high end security solutions.

A Zero Trust solution removes the complexity of implementing the top end security stack such as virtual or hardware appliances. You don't have to purchase, set up, install, and deploy high end components and repeat this process again this for every locality. instead, control everything from a single console with Zero trust security.
