SECURING THE NETWORK EDGE
Once, corporate owned devices resided inside their own corporate network. They could start connecting to on-premises based environments. However, this practice has long since changed. IT environments now connect any device in any location to resources and data that is distributed in a hybrid world of cloud storage.
The challenge is protecting your IT environment in a new world where it is almost impossible to define the perimeter. Traditional reliance on firewalls only protect part of your network, as this now extends across the public internet, to remote users and public cloud services and software.
We help organizations adopt a secure access service edge (SASE) approach to securing the perimeter-less environment, controlling access through a zero-trust network (meaning that devices are not trusted by default and must always be verified).
Access Management & Zero-Trust Network
As it becomes increasingly difficult to define the perimeter of your IT infrastructure, focus has to turn to securing the end-point and applying your security polices to manage access.
By adopting a zero-trust network approach, you ensure that enforcement of your security is no longer solely at the network edge but across every part of your hybrid infrastructure. Identity and access management can be utilized to ensure that every request is validated. It is checked, not just in terms of who is requesting access but where they are, what device they are using and when they are making the request.
Through applying the principles of SASE, you are able to extend the application of your security policies consistently across your end-user devices, on-premises infrastructure and your hybrid cloud environment.
CHALLENGES OF SECURING THE PERIMETER
How do you secure end-user devices when these are a blend of corporate and end-user owned, connecting to you from any location utilizing a mixture of private, VPN and public networks?
How do you ensure that everything connecting to your network is secure and trusted? How do you guarantee that external devices can only access the apps and data permitted by your security policies?
How do you protect applications and data that sit in hybrid cloud environments? How do you protect your users when accessing a multitude of cloud-based applications across the internet?
Consistent NETWORK & SECURITY POLICIES
Today, you need to be able to define your access and security policies centrally. You need to have the confidence that these can be applied robustly and consistently across your core-to-edge environment.
These policies need to be applied in context. It may be perfectly acceptable for an end-user to access sensitive information while on the corporate network utilizing their own corporate device, however, the same user is not permitted to access such information on their own device outside of normal working hours from an unsecure public network.
The ability for your network to continually learn from behaviour to build context rules and then to spot abnormal activity is essential in quickly identifying and isolating potential security attacks or breaches.
The Value We Deliver
We help organizations secure their IT environments by design, adopting SASE best practices and creating context-based, zero-trust networks.
This helps to reduce risk from both internal and external threats. It also provides greater control over the way you define and apply your corporate wide security policies.
Reduce Business Risk
We help reduce risk by rigorously and consistently applying your centrally defined security policies across every part of your environment. This extends from remote end-user devices through to your hybrid cloud environment.
Through controlling access across every part of your infrastructure and understanding behavioural patterns and context, we improve visibility. We help you remove many of the false-positive alerts and focus on threats identified as abnormal activity.
Ensure Consistent Experience
By applying consistent policies across every part of your environment, you can ensure that end-users gain the same experience whether inside your corporate network or remotely accessing services from their own device at home.
