What is a Zero-Trust Framework and why is it important?

Never trust, always verify” – is the guiding principle promoted by Forrester Research to state the Zero-Trust architecture approach.

This approach implies data-centric security. Security experts nowadays have far less control over the network, devices and the data that travels between employees, customers, and other third parties. You no longer know where the data resides, so your security needs to go with it. Therefore, it is fundamental to shift the focus from the network perimeter to the data itself.  Data-centric security is essential for a unified data protection strategy as it marshals the functions of many security domains — such as network, identity, and application.

Keeping control is very important. That is why a Zero-Trust approach never assumes trust. It is about continuously assessing that ‘trust’ through risk-based analysis of all available information.

Palo Alto Networks uses threat intelligence to increase situational awareness and uses security analytics tools which enable you to detect network intrusions more quickly.

The Palo Alto Networks also offers robust incident management which is necessary to contain, eradicate and recover from a breach much faster.

How Palo Alto Networks enables a Zero-Trust Framework.

Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform enables a Zero-Trust Framework by:

  • Improving network security and segmentation with the latest security features on the latest hardware platforms and inspecting ALL traffic;
  • Keeping workloads and data protected in the cloud, using consistent policies;
  • Ensuring device security while sharing threat information;
  • Enabling access to data from anywhere while still applying least privilege principles;
  • Inspecting and logging all traffic to allow visibility and analytics;
  • Spotting abnormal behavior, and automatically remediating it;
  • Providing all of the above with automated orchestration when a threat is found and with APIs if third parties need to be integrated

The Forrester Zero-Trust Model

Forrester’s Zero Trust Model on information security is a conceptual and architectural model which indicates:

  • how security teams should redesign networks into secure micro-perimeters;
  • how they should use obfuscation to strengthen data security;
  • how to limit the risks associated with excessive user privileges and;
  • how to use analytics and automation to improve security detection and response dramatically.
