When looking at the question of how your organization can protect against ransomware, zero trust architecture is an important part of the answer. With statistics from Cybersecurity Ventures showing that the damage of ransomware attacks is set to reach over $20 Billion by the end of this year, ignoring this threat can be costly for your business.
Zero trust describes a cybersecurity environment, where key parts of the system are continuously authenticating and checking that the users of the system are authorised, and as the name implies, trusts no one, including those operating within the network.
By working with your company, we can help to implement this architecture. Here are a few ways that zero trust can be instituted:
- Removing any reliance on trust zones or firewalls
- Access permissions are tightly controlled and authenticated
- Tight controls that manage interactions and secure data transfer, whether on premises or in the cloud
