How to apply Zero Trust to more than managed assets and users.
What You Need to Know about the Zero Trust Security Model
In our webinar Zero Trust Security for Unmanaged and IoT Devices, Jack Marsal, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Armis, offers a deep dive into the Forrester Zero Trust architecture and its implementation challenges.
What You Will Learn from Watching this Webinar:
- What is a Zero Trust security model
- Why it’s so important to have a Zero Trust strategy
- How companies typically implement Zero Trust models in network security
- What are the common security gaps for unmanaged and Internet of Things (IoT) devices
- How the Armis Platform addresses all Zero Trust controls
The Key Pillars of the Forrester Zero Trust Framework
The Zero Trust approach — introduced by Forrester — is based on the assumption that no person or device is trusted by default on a network. Zero Trust requires users and devices to be continuously monitored to maintain their network access. The core principle is to never trust, always verify.
Forrester Research’s Zero Trust model has seven pillars for increased network and cloud security. In our webinar, we describe how security teams implement each one of those controls:
- Device management to control endpoints
- Network segmentation based on user access and device types
- Visibility and analytics based on log and user behavior analysis
- People controls such as privileged access management and behavior monitoring
- Security automation and orchestration
- Data security such as the use of encryption to prevent data breaches
- Workload security
Our webinar explains the benefits of Zero Trust architecture and helps you better understand its implementation challenges. When enterprises adopt the Zero Trust security architecture, they typically focus on users and managed devices, leaving gaps for unmanaged IoT devices (such as printers and industrial systems) and off-network devices (such as wireless keyboards and headsets).
Watch our webinar for a detailed account of the challenges in securing those devices. There is a reduced ability to see, assess, monitor and control unmanaged and off-network devices because they lack built-in security and support for agents. Those devices don’t generate logs, and running scans can cause systems to crash.
How Armis Implements Zero Trust Best Practices
Armis addresses the Zero Trust components to secure both managed and unmanaged devices:
- Our platform can discover all devices on the network — even those unmanaged, IoT devices that can’t accommodate security agents.
- Armis provides real-time asset inventory management, analyzing and classifying every device to produce a risk assessment.
- Our platform passively monitors all network traffic to detect threats and abnormal device or user behavior.
- Armis provides proactive network segmentation and enforcement to protect your data.
