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.
