Zero Trust is a secure framework developed by VMtech. It protects against persistent malware and security exploits. It provides a solution to address the increasing need for secure communication.

At the same time, it provides access to critical and valuable business resources to authorised endpoints and users inside the organisation’s network and mobile workforce across untrusted networks.

Business Benefits:

VMtech’s Zero Trust and the technology that supports the framework provides a flexible, secure and end-to-end approach for providing a high-level of security and simplifies access to critical and valuable resources. The Zero Trust framework:

  • improves network security
  • mitigates insider risk
  • reduces overall Cyber risk
  • provides seamless user experience
  • reduces operating costs
  • simplifies operations.

A true zero trust architecture is based around not just authenticating users but also their device and its posture prior to providing access to corporate services. Legacy NAC based solutions have suffered from scalability and where limited to internal network use only. Modern trust access brokers solve this solution by providing a seamless and secure way to access services regardless of location.

This is a foundational element to delivering Zero Trust which ensures that only trusted devices used by strongly authenticated users can ever see and access trusted applications.

This ensures the endpoint is protected and proactively prevents threats and malware rather than reactively detecting the execution of advanced persistent threats and malware.

As a large proportion of cyberattacks starts with a phishing email, email needs to be protected and managed to avoid exposing organisations to attacks. It is also important that malicious content is filtered during web browsing (including SSL traffic).

This is perimeter segmentation is no longer effective. Protecting critical applications and workloads through software-based segmentation, application-aware monitoring and cyber deception, drives unparalleled agility and operational efficiency.

This is a key element to understanding what risks are posed when a device connects to the network is derived from continuously assessing the devices’ compliance with corporate policy.
