The need for Cyber Security in 2022

Find out why security is so important in 2022

With more and more work being performed remotely, the demand for cyber security solutions has dramatically increased. It’s no surprise then that companies are adopting zero trust, SASE and XDR at accelerated rates to meet these demands. In this article we’ll explain what each of these are and how they can help protect you from cyber attacks.

What is Zero Trust?

As the name suggests Zero Trust is a security concept formed around the belief that an organisation should not trust anything either within or without its perimeters and should instead verify everything which tries to access its systems before it grants permission.

For example if Jim from IT is trying to access the system, it will need Jim to prove that he is himself, it will also need to check if Jim is trying to connect from a secure endpoint and what permissions does Jim have as a user. In order to do all this Zero Trust requires existing technologies for example, analytics, encryption, IAM and multifactor authentication.

How do I start a Zero Trust Environment?

Many IT shops are already offering pieces of Zero Trust which usually include multi-factor authentication, permissioning and IAM. However experts say it requires more than just getting the correct technologies, it’s a matter of mindset. The company needs to fully embrace the idea and this is not a quick process, especially for those using legacy systems. A move to Zero Trust should be a multiphase project which will span over the course of multiple years.

What is XDR (extended detection and response)?

Through XDR’s combination of network traffic analysis(NTA), endpoint detection and response(EDR), security orchestration, automation and response(SOAR) and security information and event management(SIEM), security data is centralized. This grants you transnetwork visibility as well as improved detection and response via the correlation of threat intelligence across security products. 

Why your Enterprise needs XDR

As your digital assets grow, so too do the threats to their security. As adversaries use increasingly complex TTP’s to bypass and exploit traditional security controls and more work is done from home, security teams are being stretched thin with limited resources. XDR provides SOCs with a platform which unites all relevant security data as well as revealing advanced adversaries.

What is Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)?

A combination of WAN and security functions such as cloud access security broker (CASB), secure web gateway (SWG) and zero-trust network access (ZTNA), SASE supports the ever changing secure access needs of a business. SASE is capable of continuously monitoring sessions for trust and risk levels, decrypting data at line speed and identifying malware and sensitive data.
