Six years ago, we started Safe-T to bring consistency and simplicity to secure access. We knew, back in the early days of the digital transformation, that attackers would use this new opportunity to make their way inside corporate networks at any given chance. That led to the development of our unique Secure Access Solution to help businesses reduce their attack surface and protect from external and insider threats.
Although organizations realize the need to upgrade their approach to user access control. The deployment of existing technologies is holding back the introduction of Software Defined Perimeter (SDP). A recent report carried out by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) on the “State of Software Defined Perimeter” states that the main barrier to adopting SDP is the existing in-place security technologies.
Back in 2010, John Kindervag, the then-principal analyst at Forrester, coined the term Zero Trust. The idea behind this edgy-sounding concept was that when it comes to network security, nothing can be trusted and everything — and everyone — should be verified.
The foundations that support our systems are built with connectivity and not security as an essential feature. TCP connects before it authenticates. Security policy and user access based on IP lack context and allow architectures that exhibit overly permissive access. Most likely, this will result in a brittle security posture.
