Zero Trust & Platform as a Service (PaaS)

At GM Sectec we align to the NIST 800-207 standard for Zero Trust and PCI DSS Req 1. Through our next generation as a service model we are able to deliver unique capabilities across our client spectrum.

What Is Zero Trust?

Zero Trust is an information security model based on the principle of maintaining strict access controls by not trusting anyone or any action by default, even those already inside the network perimeter. Instead, each transaction is evaluated for need and risk. It combines network and application micro-segmentation and identity and access management platforms to verify access and authorization, and it allows for more granular access control and machine/application-specific policies. It also employs multifactor authentication, IAM, orchestration, analytics, encryption, scoring and file system permissions, plus governance policies such as giving users the least amount of access they need to accomplish a specific task.

So, sometimes, it’s best to assume the worst. Zero Trust security solutions protect networks, applications, and data based on the concept of “never trust, always verify.” In a Zero Trust model, identity is the core security control used by security teams that “assume breach” because any user or device is a potential threat actor.

Zero Trust Benefits

Better Security Outcomes

Zero Trust is about removing all implicit trust. No matter the user, the data or the access route, you can then look at it as one use case - and by securing all these situations, you get better security outcomes.

Simplified Infrastructure

Rebuilding your security infrastructure is serious business, which is why you don’t want to invest in point solutions from various vendors. You want real Zero Trust, and that’s the Zero Trust Enterprise.

Lower Cost to Manage

By investing in the Zero Trust Enterprise, you’re making the decision to become more secure, more efficient and more focused - and it’s this advanced approach to security that’s going to positively impact your bottom line.

Easy to Operate

By implementing Zero Trust, you’re going to have one guiding principle for securing everything, and bringing all use cases from the past, down into just one. Now that’s smart business and easy too.

Bringing it all together.
