Resilient enterprises demand Zero Trust
A breach is unavoidable. Minimizing impact is essential.
With cyber threats continuously evolving, Zero Trust challenges traditional cybersecurity thinking. It assumes that networks are either actively under attack or already breached and require continuous security validation. Understanding this concept, the Leidos Zero Trust Readiness Level pairs the level of cyber protection to the evaluated threat risk, providing a scale with which organizations can measure their readiness against increasingly advanced threats.
Implementing Zero Trust
Traditional cybersecurity practices focus on a “castle and moat” model, where security protocols concentrate on keeping threats out. Zero Trust sees networks as cities where communication with external applications and networks is constant, and users need to move freely without sacrificing usability or security. Every organization is different, with specialized needs and priorities. As a leading provider of cybersecurity to the Federal Government, Leidos is uniquely equipped to help customers plan and navigate the roadmap to Zero Trust.
Before an enterprise can create or adopt a plan to implement Zero Trust, however, it must first evaluate its cyber defense strategies to understand its gaps. To support those efforts, leading experts at Leidos have developed the Zero Trust Readiness Level assessment, a tailored roadmap to better help agencies survey their castle and prepare for the transition to Zero Trust.
Leveraging Zero Trust Principles to Secure the Enterprise
To maximize the benefits of the cloud and reduce risks associated with hybrid IT environments, Leidos leverages Zero Trust principles to secure the enterprise and workloads.
Zero Trust: The new way forward in cybersecurity with Jeff Mims
Effective cybersecurity is more important than ever before. It's not enough anymore to make minor updates when weak points are exposed. Now is the time for organizations to do a complete overhaul in their cybersecurity approach. That's what the Zero Trust framework brings to the IT industry. Jeff Mims is a Leidos Chief Technologist and he joins the MindSET podcast to explain more about what Zero Trust is, how it works, and why it's so important.
