Identity Security  

Zero Trust Methodology

What is Zero Trust? Zero trust is a mindset and long-term approach to security and governance that addresses the vulnerabilities in today’s work environment.

This highly complex strategy is being adopted by government agencies and businesses worldwide. But for many starting the journey, it's difficult to wrap your head around. For the next step on your journey, we're here to get you there.

Get Started

Zero trust starts with identity.

Our increasingly interconnected world of remote work, multiple devices and cloud-based applications and resources has rendered traditional perimeter-based network defenses unfit for attacks. This means that the foundation for your zero trust methodology must start with identity.

Here at MajorKey, our goal is to help you identify where you are on the zero trust security journey... while sharing the good news, you may be further along than you think!

Is a Zero Trust Methodology Right for Your Business?

The uniqueness of a businesses culture, policies, and customers means there's no one size fits all solution.

  • The solutions that align with a zero trust methodology can be incredibly complex.
  • Initiatives must support the formation of your zero trust strategy over several years.  
  • There's no one size fits all solution for zero trust and integrations are needed across adopted technologies.
  • Many businesses are new to the cloud journey. And on-premise and cloud environments work very differently – making a robust game plan that caters to both very difficult.
  • Securing and governing your business is an ongoing initiative. You must have a long-term roadmap and sophisticated planning to properly support your security posture.
  • Businesses aren’t leveraging automation to manage identities with more scrutiny.

This means that the foundation for your zero trust methodology must start with identity.

But how do you trust people, systems, software, and cloud apps?

Implementing Zero Trust for Your Business

Successfully implementing a zero trust methodology means going beyond rolling out a series of integrated tools and technologies, which are supported by a set of operational policies and authentication requirements.

Zero trust should be looked at much more strategically.

Complexities arise when outlining authorization to specific resources both on-premises and in the cloud, as well as how technologies will interact with data, threat intelligence, public key infrastructure, identity management, and vulnerability management systems.

Once this foundation has been established, companies can determine more sophisticated automation parameters like software-defined perimeters, micro-segmentation, by identity, or a combination therein.

MajorKey delivers successful technology solutions that align with zero trust, including:

  • Single-Sign On
  • Multifactor Authentication
  • Passwordless
  • DevSecOps
  • Cloud Governance
  • CI/CD Management
  • Privileged Access Management
  • Zero Trust Strategy and Roadmap
  • Identity Access Management

  • Reduced threat surface
  • Maximized use and authority of authentication
  • Increased visibility into all user activity
  • The ability to dynamically provide access based on current use case
  • Reduce an attacker’s ability to move laterally within your organization
  • Limit possibility for data exfiltration
  • Protection against both internal and external threats
  • Lowered reliance on point solutions designed to detect/stop specific types of threat activity
  • Improved overall security posture both on-premises and in the cloud
