Introducing Seqrite HawkkProtect

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

These days, enterprise IT departments have a wide network of systems, some applications are on premises, some are on the cloud. Some users are within the network in the same premises, some connected by VPN. Customers, partners, and employees now access corporate systems and applications using a wide array of devices, company owned, private, and sometimes public machines from locations across the globe.

Zero trust is a new security paradigm where an organization by default does not trust any employee with access to its systems whether from within or outside the corporate network. Each and every access attempt by each employee to a company system, network, and online resources is subject to authentication before access is granted. Zero trust is a mixed approach of using policies, processes and technologies to stop data breach where enterprises need to leverage enforcement based on users, locations, and other identifiers before granting access to corporate systems or applications.
