Zero Trust Implementation

Why Zero Trust?

Today, organizations require the kind of efficient security in complex modern environments, can function adequately in a hybrid workplace, and provide protection for devices, apps, and data.

Increased Productivity

Zero Trust hikes the productivity level organizations. It enables users to work safely, regardless of location, time, and device.

Streamline User Access

The automation that accompanies a Zero Trust framework enables users to access what they need quickly — so they don’t have to wait on administrators for approval.

Simplify IT Management

Because Zero Trust rests on the basis of continual monitoring and analytics, organizations can use automation to assess access requests.

“Zero Trust investigates every access request, even from the organization, and verifies them for safety. Every request is fully authenticated, authorized, and encrypted before granting access. Microsegmentation, rich intelligence, and analytics are utilized to minimize lateral movement and detect and respond to anomalies in real-time.”

Zero Trust Principles

The key benefit of using a Zero Trust approach is protection from all sides, particularly from within. Traditional security models such as defense-in-depth have historically focused protection on the network perimeter. These approaches are failing organizations where many of today’s breaches occur from within, whether explicitly by employees or by threats that have infiltrated the network through email, browsers, VPN connections, and other means. Data exfiltration can be easy for someone who already has access to the network. To combat this, Zero Trust takes away access from anyone and everyone until the network can be certain who you are. Then, it continuously monitors how you’re using data and potentially revokes permissions to copy that data elsewhere

Verify Explicitly

After verifying all available data, a well implemented Zero Trust model will only authorize access, including user identity, location, device health, service or workload, data classification, and anomalies.

Use Least Privileged Access

After verifying all available data, we will only authorize access, including user identity, location, device health, service or workload, data classification, and anomalies.

Assume Breach

Secure your data in advance by taking the initiative of verifying your end-to-end encryption and using analytics to detect threats and strengthen system defenses.

The Main Principles of a Zero Trust Network

As its name implies, Zero trust was created and operated on the belief that nothing should be trusted until verified. Various technologies and best practices are employed to uphold this principle. Below are some Zero Trust principles:

Least-privilege access:

This means that an individual only gains access to the data they need. This goes a long way in reducing the possibility of threats transfer from one system to another and minimizes the risk of data exfiltration from within.

Continuous monitoring:

By evaluating user interaction with data, Zero Trust can verify that these users are indeed who they claim to be. It enables risk-adaptive security control to respond immediately and carry out enforcement based on people's actions.

Data usage controls:

It puts a barrier to how people can employ the data once granted access into the network. These barriers may include revoking permission to copy already-downloaded data to USB disk, email, or cloud apps.


This classifies a network into separate segments, each segment having its requirements for granting access. It helps to cage any threats that have made their way into any detail and prevent it from spreading through the entire network by restricting them to that segment. This way, other network parts can proceed with normal functions while the breached component gets fixed.

How to Implement Zero Trust

There are various possible means to implement this model. However, some considerations should be observed to implement Zero Trust efficiently.

Below are some technologies that organizations should be considered as additions to their current stack:

Next-Generation Firewall:

This is required for its ability to provide network protection, decrypt traffic, and help with micro-segmentation.

Understand Access Needs:

This helps decide who needs access to your network and remember that everyone should be granted the least privilege they need and no more.

Data Loss Prevention:

This assists in ensuring that you not only have control over access to your network and how your data can be employed.

Zero Trust Network Access:

The new Zero Trust cloud services offer people working from distance to internal private apps. It allows them to avoid the complexities, bureaucracy, and risks of using VPNs.

Continuous Monitoring:

There is a need to watch how your systems and data are always used to verify user identity. Cloudilax Solutions invites you to benefit from its enhanced user activity monitoring solutions that provide you with risk-adaptive data protection, which gives you control over what users can do on your network

Consider Your Culture:

From the largest to the tiniest security detail, a company's culture has a lot to do with the efficiency of any security model. With Zero Trust, a supportive and well-informed workforce will be vital to its success as they would have to understand that threats originate from within and without.
